If you like keeping in touch with family and friends, but not weeding through tons of games, other people's status updates, liked groups, etc, you may find MyTies to your liking. It is a highly personalized social networking app that is as private as you want, and thus separates the wheat from the chaff, so to speak! Use your personal contacts on your phone to create multiple private social networks. If you want to share your location with your friends, but are worried about the privacy issue, MyTies lets you control the privacy of your location, messages, photos and photos. Some of the cool features of MyTies are as follows:

• Control Your Information – MyTies users can privately update their status, content or location without those outside of the group seeing the information.

• Share Content Without the Web – MyTies leverages iPhone’s address book and users’ contacts to establish groups, and is not dependent on Web-based user profiles.

• Reduce the Clutter – MyTies only sends and receives information from your contacts and does not show postings from irrelevant users, game sites or corporate networks.

• Easy Group Communication – Keep teams, groups and family members updated with in-app or SMS group messaging. For example, users can announce and map a meeting via group messaging.

• Location-Based Updates– MyTies allows users to tag postings on a map with an exact location for added context. Depending on the user’s preferences, MyTies can also show where your closest friends are on a map.

• Privacy Protection – MyTies will not sell personal information to advertisers, enable Internet-based searching, or allow anyone outside of the user-created group to view information.

I suppose what strikes my fancy most about MyTies is being able to avoid the various scores from games friends are playing, along with all the various cute "Like" sayings and "Like" pages. Sometimes the clutter in other social networks just takes over the personal feeling of the whole thing! With this social networking app, you can form separate groups based on with who you want to share information. Some group ideas could be perhaps school mates, gym friends, family or co-workers. MyTies lets you easily choose which group can view messages, photos, videos and even location information. Enjoy simple social networking without giving away all your secrets, with MyTies.
