Facebook challenged by ambitious upstarts
By Jonathan Frewin Technology reporter, BBC News
developing alternatives to the social network.
Funding and users are flowing to services that claim to put members
in charge of their personal data.
The rivals range from start-ups to more established firms working on
the specifications for an ecosystem of open social networks
...yet another potential rival to Facebook.
That company is called StatusNet, which itself has created social
networking software in use by 25,000 sites, with more than 1.5
million user accounts, according to Evan Prodromou, the company's head.
"Any StatusNet site lets people from other (OStatus
standards-compliant) sites follow the users there", he said.
"The open protocols that we use mean our software works with much
higher-profile services, like Google Buzz, Posterous, LiveJournal,
WordPress, and Tumblr."
