About this project
Famicity is easy! First, you create your account and invite all of your family members by creating your family tree. It’s like a virtual family reunion! Second, everyone shares their memories and completes their timelines.
There are two tiers of Famicity — Free and Premium. Free users can upload text, photos, and even full albums!
Premium users get many additional perks: they can share videos, record audio, add DNA information, and save important documents. Then all users can interact, comment, message, and share directly with one another in their virtual family community.
Famicity keeps your data private — and we have the infrastructure and the expertise to keep the Famicity network secure. We guarantee privacy for our members, forever, unlike other social networks which use and mine information for tracking, advertising and marketing. Family memories deserve to be treasured by and shared with your family community only, no matter where they are in the world.
Pictures are the gateway to memories, and memories are the gateways to emotion. Share the moments of pure joy with your family — such as births, weddings, and graduations — in a way that is authentic, personal, long-lasting, and emotionally significant.
With social media expanding and changing at the pace that it is, it’s often easy for grandparents to feel left behind in the goings-on of their children and grandchildren. Famicity is easy to use and tailored specifically to families, so that each and every member of the family can feel included, tell their story, and watch their family grow and prosper.
Going beyond just a simple social network, Famicity also offers integration with existing genealogy software to be the all-in-one legacy solution. It is compatible with GEDCOM format, which allows you to import and export all the data related to your family tree with ease, so that everyone in your family network can access this information.
With sites like Facebook and Twitter and apps like Viber and Whatsapp, it may be easy to keep in touch instantly — however, your contact quickly fades into the abyss of the internet, stuck at the bottom of everyone’s feeds. Famicity’s very format encourages the archiving of memory, so that the messages, photos, and videos you share will remain a part of your family’s memory and legacy for as long as you wish.
Memories take many forms – whether they are documents you want to preserve, photos you want to archive, videos you want to replay, or stories you want to record. With the regular version of Famicity, you are able to store albums and photos; if you upgrade to the premium version, you can share videos, voice recordings, and important documents as well.
At Famicity, we have a vision of your family growing with our technology. With your support, we’ll be able to add exciting new features that keep your family connected and memories preserved in a fun, futuristic way.
Don’t wait to start preserving your legacy! All Kickstarter backers who invest in the Premium version of Famicity now are guaranteed to have the reduced annual subscription price for a lifetime.
Risks and challenges
As we already have experience in the design and creation of innovative websites and mobile apps, we are confident that we will be able to fulfill the project! Our experience from previous years tells us that the largest challenge is to meet the demand, which is why a Kickstarter project is perfect.
We have HIGH expectations for FAMICITY because we love our family and we want to be able to deliver a tool that is not an instant sharing social network but a full legacy center, private and secure, that will remain for the generation to come.
Even if it might take years to create a perfect legacy center, we'll be there to create that place for you, and we enjoy it!
We need to know if people other than us are willing to spend a small amount per month to protect their family legacy. We don't want to create a service where our relatives' or our children's lives are a marketing product, such as on other social networks. We love our freedom, and most of all, we'd like to share news with people who are not on public social networks because of the privacy issues.
We are able to create a wonderful service that costs less than a Starbucks coffee per month for early adopters and will become more and more useful for families. Helping us on this Kickstarter is like screaming to the world that you care about your family.
Family is the most beautiful community to serve.
Are people willing to pay less than the price of a cup of coffee per month to protect and preserve their family and children lives? Do people want to pass on their legacy to the next generation? We hope so…!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
