Much more than an alternative to facebook

about Diaspora · · Helpful Not helpful 2 Helpful

I found this social network very interesting, I like its audience, it is at the reach of all, it is a real alternative to facebook and co but opensource
Very open, so opensource anyone can contributed in different ways to the project
Public level it is anglophone even if thanks to framasoft its opens much to French, a good community
From an idea of Aaron Swartz away from facebook marketing

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 people in whatever way you choose. The only limit is your imagination. diaspora* is also Free Software, giving you liberty over how you use it.

Diaspora* main strength over Minds.com is that Diaspora* is really fully decentralized (distributed and federated). Compare to Minds which is NOT yet fully decentralized. Open source code is not to be confuse with decentralized.

By decentralized ("distributed" and "federated") I mean with Minds everyone’s data is being stored into ONE huge CENTRAL servers owned by a ONE large organization. Compare to Diaspora* which stores everyone’s data on MULTIPLE INDEPENDENT servers (“pods”) all over the world. You simply choose which pod to register with, and you can then connect seamlessly with the diaspora* community worldwide. Thus Diaspora is much safer and more robust.
