  • Site Launched as Facebook Rival

    Four United States students who launched a new social networking site called ‘Diaspora’ are stressing its ease of use and stricter privacy policy, in a bid to make waves in a field dominated by Facebook.

    The version, which is available to software developers since last week, is giving outsiders an opportunity to work on applications within its framework, ahead of a public launch due at a yet undisclosed later date.

    "This is now a community project and development open to anyone with the technical expertise who shares the vision of a social network that puts users in control," say the founders at the project site: www.joindiaspora.com.
