Community-run, Distributed Social-network

Diaspora is a nonprofit, user-owned, distributed social network based upon three key concepts: Decentralization, freedom and privacy.
Diaspora consists of independently owned pods (servers) that form a network. Disroot is just one node in that big network.

Diaspora* key philosophies:

 

Decentralization

Instead of everyone’s data being contained on huge central servers owned by a large organization, local servers (“pods”) can be set up anywhere in the world. You choose which pod to register with - perhaps your local pod - and seamlessly connect with the diaspora* community worldwide.

Freedom

You can be whoever you want to be in diaspora*. Unlike some networks, you don’t have to use your real identity. You can interact with whomever you choose in whatever way you want. The only limit is your imagination. diaspora* is also Free Software, giving you liberty to use it as you wish.

Privacy

In diaspora* you own your data. You do not sign over any rights to a corporation or other interest who could use it. With diaspora*, your friends, your habits, and your content is your business ... not ours! In addition, you choose who sees what you share, using Aspects.

 

Diaspora Features:

Hashtags

Hashtags allow you to flag and follow your interests, and help your posts reach like-minded people. They’re also a great way to meet fun and interesting new people on diaspora*.

 

Reshare

Why not reshare a post you love with others? diaspora* makes it easy to spread ideas via reshare. Just press the button to share the message.

 

Mentions

Want to get someone’s attention? Just @mention them! It’s an easy way to alert one of your contacts to something you think they need to know about.

Love

Show your appreciation for something you love by ♥ing it. Because sometimes words just aren’t enough to say what you feel.
