Existing social networks are all ‘individualistic’ and do not allow any scope for ‘bonding of families’, which form the ethos of Indian society. It’s a challenge for most of the families to know the list of 50 families that they are deeply connected-with, even in this Internet age.
Popular social networks allow only the account holders to be connected with other account holders. The dependents – like kids, senior citizens, digital illiterates and deceased – are left out of the system and have no role to play in the context of activities in these systems. Also, the connections of these dependents fade away with location-change or after they pass-away.
There is no platform for Indian families till now, for online activities that reflect the social fabric of Indian society – know each other’s family better, celebrate occasions of all members including those who do not have online presence, inherit social circle, know family tree, offer tributes to people who pass-away, connect students to teachers at family-level and so on.
We built Familybirdz platform to enable one to connect with FAMILIES of relatives, friends, teachers & students and keep in touch with them. It is #MadeInIndia and primarily meant for Indian families.
Through Familybirdz, every member in a family can be present in the system, either as an account holder or digital dependent. One can connect with other members in the system – account holders or dependents – using real-life relationships and form a bond. Immediate family members are grouped together into a small unit known as ‘Nest’ in Familybirdz. A bond between two members in the Indian context is actually a bond between their families. So, when one connects with 50 members, it is equivalent to connecting with those 50 families (nests) ! Think of all the families that one would invite for a grand occasion like marriage at home. This is a reflection of one’s real-life social network with added advantage that technology brings them even closer.
When members across nests are connected with immediate family relationship, family tree gets extended. There is a provision in Familybirdz to browse through this family tree and know who-is-who or whereabouts of extended family.
As one can also connect with families (nests) of friends, teachers and students, one can see their social circle here. In Indian context, every member in a family typically knows the circle of each other. Reflecting the same behaviour, the circles of each of the nest members is allowed to be navigated as ‘family circle’ in Familybirdz. Family circle is thus the combination of circles of parents, siblings, grand-parents, spouse and children. One’s memorable life-activities are associated with members in this family circle in Indian context !
