Familybuilder’s flagship product, Family Tree, has reached an important milestone, surpassing all other social family / genealogy destinations in terms of active users. As of today, Family Tree has over 28 million total users, 175 million family member profiles, and 6 million monthly active users on Facebook, exceeding all of its competitors.
Familybuilder’s Family Tree launched on the Facebook platform in June 2007. Since then, Facebook itself has become the most popular social network on the web stirring up a worldwide phenomenon. Family Tree has grown with the platform and has been ranked consistently, for the last 18 months, as a top 50 application overall and a top 20 non-gaming application. Just recently, Family Tree surpassed its social-oriented competitors both on and off Facebook to claim the #1 social family destination title. “We continue to invest in our Facebook presence and we have a range of new features in the works that will take engagement and usage to an even higher level,” said Familybuilder CEO, Ilya Nikolayev.
This accomplishment solidifies Familybuilder’s position as a major player within the online family market. Social functionality, whether it lives within Facebook or outside, is key to connecting family members online. With Family Tree’s huge user base, it is the go-to destination for living genealogy and communication/interaction amongst siblings, cousins, and other family members.
