You may have heard of Diaspora. It was mooted a while ago as a more secure alternative to Facebook. As I’ve always disliked the latter, only signing up to it because most of my best friends were there, I was keen on the idea of a new social network - especially if it was less likely to want to share my details with anyone for the right price. The sooner I can kill my FB account, the happier I shall be.
I’ve followed developments for a while now, and I have just signed up to Diaspora. It’s in private alpha right now, so it’s by invitation only. I have five invitations to share, so if you’re interested in the idea of giving Facebook the elbow (and/or finger) and fancy trying something very new, please contact me and I can send you an invitation.
First come, first served.
