Request for a decentralized social network Justin Kistner | metafluence.com

I believe there are too many “social networks” out there that unnecessarily reproduce functions of the internet I believe these services exist today because they solve a few key hurdles for the mass user market I believe there are a few key trends and technologies that exist today that can move the social networking activity off of YASNs I believe social networking will be better for the people involved

With an identity layer, the Blogosphere could be a decentralized social network
