Family Social Networking websites

Someone help me in finding Family Social Networking website. As most of the social websites like facebook, orkut,Hi5 is basically designed for friends & dating like stuff, everyone can view your profile. & everyone using these for their friends.

Most thing is too secure family Photos.

As my family is scattered in whole world, so I want to make a platform from where my whole family can share there experiences,photos,videos & update about events.So everyone can stay in touch every moment of life.

I need any good & secure social website which is only family oriented site.

Features like

- I can send invitation to my family members to join my family community.

- My family members authorize to get in.

- Everyone can startup blogs.

- Everyone can add up photos (facility of Album)

- Everyone can add up videos.

- Reminders,events Calenders.

I have found one http://famiva.com/ , would you people recommend this.

or someone using any other.

I need such like that I feel only my family is using this website & there is no other world for my family. Although there may be thousands of family networks but they are independent of each others.

Found that but not decided which is best, safe & secure.

Looking good. & also easy domain name. Few months ago I tried to make A/c on sampa.com, but after 2-3 months they wind up their booria bistara. So that why I am searching for some permanent & free website.

Are you facing any problem… yeh ads are problem in free package if they out of limits…

As I said, I am a satisfied customer (with good customer support) since the last 10 years. These people are very professional and know what they are doing. They plan to stay in the market and are very reliable.

But....

You need to pay them for what they do. I haven't checked what they offer for free but I highly recommend investing with them for a domain name and memory space.

my people specially in UK prefer to have seperate family social networks , i hope trend will expand to other countries soon too

In free basically google ads are problem.

Although its not too expensive. 29.95/year(essential plan). nearly Rs.2500/year not a big deal if they are giving good services.

Maverick have you consider google apps? Its pretty good. You get email, a site editor and also a google docs. You can also use your own domain name with google apps.

Yeah you can easily make your own but it’s hard to promote it :(

Why do you want to promote it if its only for your family?
