It’s a sad day. The content of our family’s Famicity network was delivered to my inbox this morning. Famicity is shutting down. It has been a delightful family network for our family – a network designed to support all members of the family – young and old.
We used Famicity to share special events like birthdays, anniversaries and graduations with family members all across the country. It was also a digital scrapbook where we could share family stories, photos and other ephemera related to ancestors so younger members could discover more about their family history.
We will miss Famicity. Yes, there are other social networks but none of them have protected our privacy like Famicity did. I would love to see someone take on Famicity in a way that families can afford and the platform can support itself. These features along with privacy protection are worth paying for.
