What's FamilyLink? Is GM tweaking Facebook's nose a bit again?

Since this title doesn't lend itself to extension, I started a FamilyLink discussion.
It also can be set to give a message to certain contacts on a list at defined times each day: i.e., at 8:00 am when your student is supposed to be parked in the school lot and in the school building.
The beta apparently was run at the last quarter of 2011. I recall getting an email message offering the service, but my car was sitting in my garage so I didn't see a benefit. Now the car is at college and summer job, so I decided to try it out for locating my car at random times during the day.
For $3.99 per month in addition to the regular OnStar fee, it seemed like it was worth it. It is month-to-month, so I can delete the service without losing my paid year remaining for regular OnStar.
