When I clicked on that hyperlink, I got an interesting error message:

SECURITY WARNING: Please treat the URL above as you would your password and do not share it with anyone. See the Facebook Help Center for more information.

This appears to not be Wikitree specific; Facebook seems to be tracking my clicks everywhere. I turned on the anti-tracking feature in my browser, and the warnings stopped.

WikiTree and social media see:  Help:Social Media


Facebook is where we have our strongest social media presence.

You can follow us on our Facebook page.

Simply click the "Like" button, and like and/or comment when a post catches your eye. Or if you really like it, you can go an extra step and click the "Share" button.

There are also WikiTree groups you can join and participate in:

WikiTree Members Group: This group is a general group for WikiTreers to talk all things WikiTree.

Family History Photo of the Week: Join this group if you want to vote in our Photo of the Week contests or if you'd like to share your family photos with other photo enthusiasts.

WikiTree in Australia: This group is for our WikiTreers from down under.

WikiTree för släktforskare: Our Swedish WikITreers formed this group to collaborate.

Also check out our special Shareable Images. To share your own tree image, click the "Share on Facebook" link on the pull-down menu at the top of this page that begins with your WikiTree ID (if you're logged-in).
