Today in Social

There’s more buzz around Diaspora – the open-source social networking technology sometimes referred to as the “anti-Facebook” – than you might expect. The Diaspora concept originated with a small group of NYU students fed up with Facebook’s privacy snafus. They released source code yesterday. Diaspora really is a network, rather than a site. Each user has to host his own “seed,” from which other sites or apps pull elements of his social graph – all under his own control. That’s intriguing, but sounds like consumer poison, unless an ecosystem of simpler services emerge around it. But it might be just the thing for corporate social networking.
