Famicity Closing

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.

  1. You note that you “would love to see someone take on Famicity in a way that families can afford and the platform can support itself.”
    LifeTimes has some similar objectives to Famicity. LifeTImes is a social platform that allows family members to collaborate and share events for family members both past and present.
    People can start building a tree by importing a GEDCOM file if they have one. Members can communicate with other members, add events and photos to a person’s Timeline.
    And it’s free
    We would welcome feedback about the features that people liked about Famicity which we should consider adding to LifeTimes.
    If you have the contact details of the people that operate Famicity we’d love to talk to them,
