Diaspora* is a free personal web server that implements a distributed social networking service. Installations of the software form nodes which make up the distributed Diaspora* social network. Instead of everyone’s data being contained on huge central servers owned by a large organization, local servers (“pods”) can be set up anywhere in the world. You can create your local pod and connect with the Diaspora* community worldwide.
We are working now to release pre-configured, ready-to-run native installers for Linux and OS X,
virtual machines, and cloud images for Windows Azure and AWS. This will make it very easy to try out Diaspora*. Stay tuned!
We want to thank the community members that took the time to vote in our contest and made Diaspora* the winner. You can also vote for other projects

ask others to vote and share your favorite project so that it has more chances to win!
