Status Updates! Tell Your Family What You’re Up To…

Wednesday, April 15th, 2009

This week we are excited to release the new Status Bar feature in Genoom. The Status Bar is a fun way to share information and tell your family what you´re up to.

Your Status updates will be displayed in the top area of your profile and show up on the activity feed of your family members. You can also choose who views your Status updates by clicking on “edit” once you begin typing in the box.

So, what are you up to?

Hide Branches of Your Family Tree

Wednesday, March 18th, 2009

If your family tree has extended branches of your non-bloodrelated family with whom you don´t have any relation (or little interest), you can now configure your family tree to hide branches. Simply click on “close branch” on a non-bloodrelated member´s profile and that section of the tree will be hidden. You can just as easily “open branch” as well.

Closing a branch also means that you will no longer see the activity of the members of that branch in the activity feed of your network.
