janoshaits on 2011-02-10Diaspora is the social network that puts you in control of your information. You decide what you’d like to share, and with whom. You retain full ownership of all your information, including friend lists, messages, photos, and profile details.
"Share what you want, with who you want." Full Control: built-in
If you take twenty photos at a party, you can show the three least-incriminating to your coworkers, while posting the whole set to your friends. Your coworkers can’t find out that they’re seeing the expurgated version. Future employers can’t either.
You can post updates to everyone, to just your close friends, to just your family, or to any other subset of your friends. It’s easy to make these groups, called “aspects,” and it’s straightforward to share different things with different aspects.
Diaspora doesn’t expose your information to advertisers, or to games you play, or to other websites you visit. It’s inherently private – you tell Diaspora who gets to see those pictures of your kids, and only those people will see them. Period. Choose a home, make an account, and invite your friends to join you! Take back your network.
