Nowadays, we can find almost anyone on Facebook. I have managed to convince all my family members to use Facebook and they are extremely happy using it. Finding long lost contacts, classmates, friends, family members just got easier with facebook. What I love to see in their application is “Family Tree” function. Currently, there are several free and paid family tree services available online. But, I wish to see them active and get connected or communicate. Almost all my cousins are a facebook members. I can immediately build 100 family tree members using Facebook if they offer this service.
Recently, Facebook announces on how they handle death user’s account. Friends or family members should let facebook know with proper documents that the person is deceased to protect spamming and security. I can say this is one unique service that no other social media offers. Being the largest social media network in today’s world, I think implementing family tree service will not be a tough task for Facebook. Creating connection from school, college and friends already have been a common function in other social media network.
It is boring to create family tree on our own by submitting details of each members. With member’s details in Facebook, I can only see growth in their network if they implement this service. Currently, I’m using MyHeritage that allow free profile update of 100 members in each family tree account. Uploading photos, email, contact, address, etc need to be done manually. We need to pay monthly fee if our family tree is more than 100 members. So, it is good to simply create connection (family tree) among facebook members that are related and use it completely free. I even have a title suggestion for it called “Bloodline”. So, do you manage any family tree at the moment?
