The Alternative Facebook The Incredible Diaspora eyes launch date

Filled under:

In its announcement, the Diaspora team states that is has pushed back many technical features such as plug-ins and APIs to spend time concentrating on the user interface, and in particular, ways in which it can enable easy ‘contextual sharing’ — the ability for users to intuitively decide what type of content is seen by co-workers, friends, family, and so on.

An open alternative to Facebook will be launched on 15 September, the developers of the project have said. ( According to BBC )

We are spending a good chunk of time concentrating on building clear, contextual sharing. That means an intuitive way for users to decide, and not notice deciding, what content goes to their coworkers and what goes to their drinking buddies. We know that’s a hard UI problem and we take it seriously. [W]e have pushed back more technical features like plugins and APIs in favor of simple and high value features. Our original goals remain the same, and these features are still in our timeline.
