MyTies iPhone App Review

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of MyTies. All opinions are 100% mine.

I live in Arizona.  My parents live in Northern Minnesota.  My brother, my sister in law, and my nephew live in the Twin Cities area in Minnesota.  We are all quite spread out and sometimes it can be a challenge to keep in touch.  Because of some of their jobs Facebook, with it's lack of privacy at times, isn't the greatest place for us to share what's going on in our lives together.  And if I ever want to share something with just my family it requires me to private message just them.  Not a huge hassle, but hassle enough to make me wish there was one place where we could privately network together to share updates with each other without having to call each other every day of our busy lives (and trust me, my family is one busy family!). 

If you are like me and you and your family are iPhone users, you are in luck!  There's actually a new app called MyTies that allows you to network with a small group of people in an invite-only setting.  That means that your posts are private to your groups and only you can invite people who see your post.  So a busy and spread out family can create a group for just them!  Then you can share thoughts, updates, pictures, and videos that will only be seen by the family members you've invited to join your group.  Another cool feature of is that your posts, pictures, and videos are tagged with your location so family that has not been able to visit where you live (like mine) can see where you took a certain photo or video!

You can even create multiple groups using the MyTies iPhone App!  Have a group of friends you are constantly talking to who are maybe cluttering up your Facebook page with too many inside jokes and things you don't want a potential employer to be able to see?  Create a MyTies group for your friends!  You can't be searched or found on so the only way a potential employer would know about it is if you invited them.  So just don't do that and you can share your inside jokes and funny party stories with your friends without fear that it will be seen by the wrong person.

In this day and age internet privacy is more important than every, so an app like MyTies helps you maintain privacy for you, your friends, your family, even your co-workers!  This is the part about MyTies that is most appealing to me!

Best of all, this is a FREE App!  Head on over to to check out all of the awesome features that this App has to offer.  While you are there, don't forget to download it to your iPhone and start creating groups for your friends and family!  You can use the promo code “myprivacy” which gives your 20 more 'invites' to use within the app to share this with your friends and family. Enjoy the security that a private social network system can offer you for free on your iPhone!
