    • So many possibilities are available. Respectful. Nice and clear. Can be self hosted. YrdaelDec 2016 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Diaspora's key advantage is that it's based on open source software that multiple servers can run. It does not put your private information, your likes, your contacts and your photos in the hands of one corporation who then use it to increase their own private profits by selling your privacy. Diaspora is much smaller though. The UI feels more like Google Plus than Facebook. JohnFastmanDec 2016 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
