    Diaspora which is a open source project from few students and which got lots of donations for the project are planning to release the new open source Social Networking.

    Here's from their blog:

    I hope these guys do well. I really do. I've been following their progress for a while now. And from spammers point of view I think it would be even easier to spam as long as you can get the person to accept you as a friend and then there should not be much stopping you. So I bet thousands of fake profiles of hot chicks and a friend adder would work a treat :D

    yup i too think this is going to go pretty well as facebook adding more bad features then good, people will be searching for something new.

    i sure like the idea about it.

    This makes me wanna go to the mountain top and shout out,
    "CALLING ALL FACBOOKE EXILES" ';)

    Diaspora is intended to be an alternative to Facebook, Twitter and other widely known social networking platforms. As per a standard procedure protocol, you'll be able to set status messages, share photos and leave comments on your friend's profile.

    One of the Diaspora developers was quoted saying:

    "The plan for implementing Diaspora, as I understand it, is for users to download the software package, and then install it on their own Website hosted by yourself or a Web hosting service."

    Diaspora will offer some sort of open ID configuration, Voice over Internet Protocol, tighter security and instant messaging. 3rd party developers are probably in for a big treat because they're allowed to write plugins for Diaspora.

    The Diaspora project was initiated when Facebook was facing those privacy concerns. The instant "personalization" feature of Facebook wasn't that effective after all, Diaspora just wanted to step in and offer something new.

    The coders, users, members of BHW should have a field day after mid September.:D

    i'm not planning on spamming it. i just like the idea of it. i don't like facebook that much. Well with diaspora we control what to share and what not. that makes alot of difference from giving a company your info to having it yourself.

    I didn't check it until I saw this thread, but imo that's really shitty branding for a company that rcv'd that much funding.
