Hi everyone! This is our first post in the DSNP.org Blog, and hopefully the first of many more posts exploring the DSNP technology and solutions.
For decades private companies have controlled our social networks and related data in walled gardens. They’ve controlled innovation. They’ve controlled how value flows. This control starts with ownership of the social graph—the digital representation of our online relationships that governs how we connect, contribute, and consume. We believe the social graph should not be the property of companies—it should belong to everyone. It should be basic public infrastructure, like the core protocols that drive the web itself. We’ve developed an open source, unified social graph that opens the path to reclaim our networks. It’s called the Decentralized Social Networking Protocol (DSNP), and it’s designed to transform the social graph from a corporate asset to community-governed public infrastructure. Everything within this project is open source.
If this is your first visit, the Decentralized Social Networking Protocol (DSNP) whitepaper is a good place to start. In our posts, we highlight some of the development that has happened in the past month. We’ve included links to our repositories in GitHub below.
