See how LifeTales compares with Facebook.

LifeTales is an alternative to Facebook for sharing your family's stories privately and securely.

Broadly speaking, think of Facebook as a large neighbourhood party and LifeTales as a dinner party. There's room in your life for both, but for different occasions.

Your Facebook persona

Facebook can be a lot of fun. Sharing a few pix with 500 or more of your Facebook friends, getting tons of likes and comments and even hearing from long ago acquaintances … all of that can be tons of fun (and hopefully Facebook’s algorithm ensured they saw it!)

But sometimes, after a steady diet of this, it can feel like everyone's at a great party but you 😞

And then you remember — it's their Facebook persona, not the real thing (not that it makes you feel better).

LifeTales — The authentic "you"

What about the rest of the story — the authentic you — all the things you probably won't share publicly on Facebook, either because it's too much or too private.

More than just a bunch of pictures, LifeTales gives you all the tools you need to easily preserve the whole story — and be the authentic you that you only share with REAL friends.
