Pocket Net (Open Source Social Network)

Postby R_Head » 06 May 2019, 16:41

Here is some interesting.

Based on the idea of Blockchain Pocket Net is a way to avoid censorship/spying on Social Networks using Open Source Software.

Sarah Westall had nice interview with the founder/creator.

Daniel Satchkov, founder of Pocketnet, joins the program to discuss the extreme censorship we are seeing sweeping across the United States. He compares the current situation to the USSR before it's collapse. The similarities are chilling he explains. He also discusses how Pocketnet is using distributed computing and open source development to create a new social media system that will be free without the hardline censorship. You can sign up for Pocketnet at Pocketnet.app

Looks good I like the encryption part during registration. They seem to take privacy seriously.
They do however take your canvas fingerprint which makes tracking you a breeze anyway .. so I dunno. :confused

Well, social media is about advertising yourself. Perhaps is best not to even bother. ;)
