TEL AVIV, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Familio (http://www.familio.com/), a photo and video sharing service for families, announces its public launch today, letting families share moments and memories together – and only together. As an everywhere app available on iOS, Android, and on the web, Familio connects family members across multiple platforms and multiple generations.
Today’s popular social networks make it very difficult to share specific content with only specific people. The content you post is shown to a very small percentage of your friends, and most people don’t know how to use, or don’t bother to use, lists and filters. If you want to post your funny baby photo, you can’t be sure your family will be the ones Facebook displays it to – instead it may go to your colleagues, and baseball buddies. Facebook just isn’t suited to family photo sharing needs.
Now, with so many places to share, no one wants another social network to constantly check – and then there’s poor Grandma who doesn’t even know how to check these sites if she wanted to! Familio overcomes these challenges by providing an app-like experience - always there, working in the background and through push notifications, letting you see the latest photos from your family, no matter how technologically savvy you are.
Familio, unlike social networks, is simple enough for even your grandparents to use. Familio is Always On, it never needs to be monitored or visited directly to check for updates. Once installed as an app on your phone and an extension running in the background of your browser, new photos will be automatically pushed to you via notifications, offering a hands-off experience. Of course, you can also enter your Familio album at any time to browse through your family’s moments and relive the memories.
Share high resolution, print quality pictures and videos on the go from your phone, email, Facebook, or any other online sources. Treasure these precious family moments for the generations to come instead of losing them scattered across the net.
Founded in 2012, Familio was incubated in lool ventures, an Israeli VC that focuses on early stage investments and on creating new companies internally. Familio was founded by Iftach Yair (CEO) and Iftach Orr (CTO) as a platform for family sharing.
