Today we are releasing the source code for Diaspora. This is now a community project and development is open to anyone with the technical expertise who shares the vision of a social network that puts users in control. From now on we will be working closely with the community on improving and solidifying Diaspora.
The problem is, the migration would have to happen en masse, all at once. It's a great idea, but facebook probably just has too much momentum.
the value of FB lies in having zillions of loyal users.
who cares about what CMS they run ?
Diaspora is like BeOS, ReactOS, Xenix, OS/2 .... they were all good and promising but ended up in a disaster.
One guy I know that I made the mistake of accepting a his friend request posted his crappy poetrydaily. Barf.
This might have a chance if there's a central user db shared (what can possibly go wrong ! :)) otherwise we have many FB wannabes out there.
Never done it. No facebook. No twitter. No myspace.
