Here's what Wikipedia has to say about fams:
FAM or Fam can mean:
EDIT: I see you've changed the title. I guess that renders my post unecessary.
90% of them come off the wrong way, especially on Home. Most people who are in them, all they care about is, how big their family is getting and who can trash talk the most. There are some good ones out there. Every place will have some sort of gang/family, no matter where you go in life and the gaming world.
Best thing to is, ignore, mute and move on. If you are referring to families on Home.
aint that the truth.
the fam recruiting people can be very annoying.
I guess they like to roleplay on playstation home as gangsters and those things most fams are made up by teenagers anyway not all of then are bad but those who say are different than the rest are usually the same as the others personally i don't join fams never been part of one either most groups who are good don't call themselves fams because they know the "fams" name has a bad reputation i don't see any fun of having to being forced to have an specific name color,trash talking to others or being forced to assist the reunion i don't know but at least that not fun in my opinion
