WorldVitalRecords Blog » We’re Related Application Reaches 10 Million Users In Less Than a Year: "PROVO, UT, October 20, 2008 — In less than one year,, Inc.’s Facebook application, We’re Related, has been downloaded by more than 10 million users.

“When we first started We’re Related, some developers told us that people won’t use Facebook to connect with their family members. They said that Facebook’s target market was not families, and that the app would not survive,” said Jason McGowan, director, Social Networking,, Inc. “We have proven just the opposite by having an application that is ranked No. 9 in ‘most monthly active users’ on Facebook. People do want to connect online with their families, and now they have an easy way to do it.”

The We’re Related application allows individuals to find relatives on Facebook, share photos with their friends and families, and also collaboratively build family trees with family members on Facebook. Using We’re Related, individuals have the ability to define which Facebook users are their relatives."
