#RootsTech – Famicity Press Release
This is a press release I received because I’m a RootsTech Ambassador
San Diego, California – Jan. 21, 2017: Even with today’s digitally connected, social media-centric world, staying in touch with your family can actually be more difficult than ever. Famicity changes this. Famicity is a social network platform that allows you to share cherished family memories–from the distant past to the present–simply and privately, with all your relatives. It’s a living record of your family at your fingertips, and it’s coming to Kickstarter.
A SOCIAL NETWORK FOR YOUR FAMILY Famicity is designed for the collection of family memories. There are no feed clogging ads, political articles, or otherwise superfluous posts like on Facebook and other networks. Famicity is also designed to protect, manage, and continue your family’s legacy, no matter where you are in the world. You can share photos, videos, and precious moments with your entire family with privacy and a peace of mind.
YOUR LEGACY AT YOUR FINGERTIPS With Famicity — write, share, organize and preserve the legacy of your family. It starts with an inviteonly family tree, creating a central location for your family’s history in the form of a timeline. Only family members can see your photos, videos, news, as well as have access to comment on those posts. It’s the perfect tool for those who want to share and enjoy their history with one another, a next-generation family photo album where relatives across the world can gather and share memories. Unlike a regular photo album, which can be so easy to lose and damage, your memories are safe in the cloud and are easy to share with distant family members. The family tree provides each family member with a timeline that helps you capture precious moments of a person’s life from his/her birth to the present. Each and every member of the family can feel included, tell their story and easily pass it down to future generations.
Memories of prior family generations are captured in old photos, notes and letters which are then uploaded to Famicity. This gives families the opportunity to share memorable stories chronologically. Famicity makes it easy for all to be family historians.
Not only is it easy to use, it is also private. The memories you share on Famicity are not shared with the public, and can only be accessed by family members allowed to see them, avoiding many of the problems that can come with posting cherished memories on other sites.
❏ Private. Only the family you invite can participate.
❏ Safe. Famicity won’t get lost or damaged like traditional photo albums.
❏ History. An easy space to store the entirety of your family’s history.
❏ Simple. Anyone in your family can use Famicity, from the very old to the very young.
