Facebook is a very popular social networking website with more than 64 million active users worldwide. The site is free for everyone as it generates revenue from advertising. Users create profiles that often contain photos and lists of personal interests, exchange private or public messages, and join groups of friends. Now OneGreatFamily.com has created Relatively Me™, a genealogy application for use with Facebook.
Here is the announcement:
OneGreatFamily is excited to introduce you to Relatively Me™, a free application developed to use with Facebook. Relatively Me takes advantage of the engaging social networking elements of Facebook like news feed, friends and photos while using the OneGreatFamily backend to create a fun and interesting family history experience.
With Relatively Me, you enter the information you already know about your family tree in a simple, easy family tree within Facebook. Relatively Me passes all the information over to OneGreatFamily as you enter it, which in turn compares your data to over 170,000,000 people within over one hundred thousand family trees already submitted to OneGreatFamily. Matched individuals are automatically merged, extending your family tree with information from the other tree. By piggybacking on the work of genealogy enthusiasts, a few entered names can quickly turn into hundreds or even thousands.
Relatively Me also provides Cool Information About Your Tree, a widget-based page that includes a wide variety of interesting and informative tools that give you insights to your family tree.
Relatively Me is a free application. The user must sign up for a free Facebook account and then add the Relatively Me application.
