There have been a number of rumors over the last few days that Samsung are working on their own social network to take on Facebook, the project has even been rumored to be called ‘Samsung Facebook’
Samsung has decided to set the record straight and have released a statement, which you can see below, denying that they intend to take on Facebook with their own social network.
There have been inquiries and a few articles claiming that Samsung Electronics is going to offer a Facebook-like service, being developed under a code-name called ‘Samsung Facebook.’ However this is not true and the rumor is groundless.
‘Family Story’ has been available since February 2012 on Samsung Smart TVs, Smartphones, Tablets and the web*. This service, like its name, is a family-oriented convergence service that focuses on sharing and storing families’ special moments.
It is true that we currently are working on upgrading ‘Family Story’ as we always thrive to provide consumers with enhanced experiences, but this is far from a “Samsung Faceboook” as some are claiming it to be.
So it looks like the rumors are unfounded, and Samsung will not be taking on Facebook after all.
