A group of people who call themselves “family” are taking the Internet by storm and creating a new kind of family-friendly social media platform.
A social media site called Family Tree House (FTH) is the brainchild of the family-centered artist, D.D. Harris, who is known for his series “The Family Tree.”
The site features hundreds of photos and video clips of the people and animals that are part of the “family,” as well as videos of the parents, grandparents, children, siblings, and other family members.
According to FTH, the purpose of FTH is to help families keep track of all the family’s interactions online, including what they’re wearing, what their hobbies are, and even the things they eat together.
“The goal is to make family accessible to the masses,” says Harris.
“It’s not for the faint of heart, but we are trying to make families feel as comfortable as possible online.”
It seems that family members are already using FTH to keep up with each other, as Harris tells Yahoo Beauty that the site is popular among their family.
“People are using it to connect, to stay in touch, to keep each other’s information up to date,” he says.
“So, I don’t think it’s a coincidence that people are gravitating towards Family Treehouse.”
It’s not only family members who are using Family Tree to keep track, though.
“I was like, ‘Hey, let’s do a family forum,'” says Harris, laughing.
“What are we doing here?”
A photo of a family member holding a dog at the front of a photo of them together is a typical picture on Family Tree, and a photo from a group photo of the dog is a “family photo.”
“People have been posting their family photos on the site for a while,” Harris says.
But the site was inspired by the fact that people had shared photos of their dogs and cats on social media in the past.
“They’re all over the place,” he explains.
“You have people posting their pets and their kids and their pets, and then they’re all kind of posting a family photo, and they’re posting the dog in the background, and you know what?
People are all sharing these pictures.
So, I thought, why don’t we try to make it more family friendly?”
So the next day, Harris and his wife and family members posted the photos they were taking of themselves, his kids, and their dogs.
“We started doing a photo thread for each of our dogs and their pictures, and I thought we were really getting it,” Harris recalls.
“This has become a big thing.”

They also use the site to share photos and videos of other people and dogs.
And as you can see in the video above, a lot of people are sharing photos of each other and their children.
“One of my family members even put up a family card,” Harris tells us.
“And then another family member put up their family card.
And so, I think it was like the whole family got together and had a family party.”
Harris says he hopes to expand Family Tree house with more families.
“Hopefully, there’s going to be more families using Family Trees,” he said.
“That’s something that I really wanted to do.”
