Geni, the venture-backed firm
which has developed an online, Web 2.0-style genealogy and social
networking web sites for families, has connected the company's service
with the popular Facebook social networking web site. Geni said that
users can now connect their Facebook account to Geni, allowing users to
use Facebook's standard invite tools to invite relatives to join Geni's
family tree serviecs. The new Facebook connection also allows users to
post their Geni activity to their Facebook newsfeed, the Facebook
feature which posts status updates and information to other users.
