We built an innovative way to create a Facebook memorial that allows the same social interactions but without the awkwardness found in the newsfeed and far more sensitive and appropriate to use in emotional times.
New York, NY (PRWEB) July 29, 2014
Sanctri announced today that their popular Facebook app for remembering people after they pass away has reached 50,000 users in the last 5 months, even before it has officially launched. Sanctri is rapidly becoming the app people turn to for memorializing and remembering their loved ones online and in social media. In essence Sanctri is the Facebook afterlife.
“The initial idea for the platform came from our own loss, and the sense of discomfort with continuing to see that person in our news feed or being prompted to buy them gift cards," said Josef Katz, CEO. “Our goal is to disrupt the traditional memorial and obituary process, that has remained unchanged. We have built an innovative way to create a Facebook memorial that allows the same social interactions but without the awkwardness found in the newsfeed and far more sensitive and appropriate to use in emotional times.”
Sanctri launched its platform on Facebook because over 10,000 users die every day. This is bound to increase with the aging demographics of Facebook’s users.
The growing public discussion about the interaction between social media and death continues to make headlines, and the numbers joining Sanctri even prior to launch demonstrate the need. Recently, news outlets including Mashable, the Huffington Post, and ABC News have addressed the issue and highlighted the shortcomings of traditional social media platforms when users pass away and what happens to their accounts.
Sanctri is the fastest growing app for the creation of Facebook memorials. People of all ages and all around the globe are using the app to memorialize those they’ve lost and to join the social media conversation surrounding someone who has died. Sanctri allows everyone to contribute their own memories, stories, photos, videos, songs and more to create an online celebration of the life that has ended.
Sanctri is accessible through Facebook or on both the App Store and Google Play.
Sanctri is the app to deal with death on Facebook. Every year, more than 4 million Facebook users will pass away, leaving their pages silenced and frozen in time. Sanctri is a place for friends and family to remember a life that was – and honor the relationship that still is. Anyone can create a Sanctri, and then collaborate in contributing thoughts, memories, photos and more. Users can also donate in memory directly through the app to over 8000 charities. Sanctri has been recognized as an innovator by major news organizations and has forged partnerships with leading non-profit organizations. It is a community to receive guidance and support, and is a better way to memorialize on Facebook.
