There’s been a bunch of news lately regarding Facebook’s privacy issues and it’s only a matter of time before some people of genius create a platform that allows users to have complete control over the data they share within their networks. Well that time is now, with the development of an open source social network called Diaspora. Fully funded through Kickstarter, this platform will act as a “do it all, privacy aware social network.” Every single person will have the opportunity to install their own fully controlled existence within the network. In concept, this sounds amazing. It’s too early in the game to think Diaspora will create an immediate dent on Facebook’s global presence. We just think it’s this type of thinking and development that will help lead the charge to combat privacy issues, while still maintaining a high level of entertainment value for the user.
