  • GNU social

    Free Self-Hosted Website

    GNU social is a continuation of the Small StatusNet iconStatusNet project. It is social communication software for both public and private communications. It is widely supported and has a large userbase. It is already used by the Free Software Foundation, and Richard Stallman himself.

    The history of GNU social

    GNU social was started in 2010 as a spin-off from the GNU FM project that was created to power music communities such as Libre.fm. In 2013, Evan Prodromou continued to develop social software for the web as Pump.io, and kindly donated all of his work to the Free Software Foundation, so we merged the existing project with StatusNet and another project called FreeSocial. And here we are.

    What's next?

    Thanks to Bytemark, GNU social has a new home in the UK, with resources to open a series of public GNU social servers for new users, including private servers dedicated to GNU social development.

    The Movim platform integrates everything you need to connect to your favourite XMPP server and communicate freely.

  • pump.io

    Free Self-Hosted Node.JS Website

    Post something and your followers see it.

    You can post almost anything that can be represented with activity streams -- short or long text, bookmarks, images, video, audio, events, geo checkins. You can follow friends, create lists of people, and so on.

    There's an API defined in the API.md file. It uses activitystrea.ms JSON as the main data and command format.

    The software is useful for at least these scenarios:

    • Mobile-first social networking
    • Activity stream functionality for an existing app
    • Experimenting with social software

    It also comes with a web UI.
