Communities,Social networking all are playing much around the web now a days.Despite there are wide list of social networks to choose from , Diaspora have made a significant spark on it’s popularity.Since it’s invitation based [in it’s alpha version] , we normally like other users had to wait.Up on profiling an account with Diaspora , at first appearance the interface is quite similar to Google+, in fact almost identical.
What Diaspora offers?
If you think it copied Google+ , no it’s reverse happened because Diaspora has been around from the September last year , clearly saying before Google+.Diaspora, at this stage, is a distributed system. There is no centralized server farm. Instead, Diaspora uses seeds, a personal Web server that stores all of your information and enables you to share this with your friends. Your status updates and like are sent to your friends using GNU Privacy Guard (GPG) encryption.
To be more specific if you are not clear,- there is no central Diaspora network or Website; since the Diaspora code is freely available online, anyone with a server handy can host a Diaspora server that you can join. The software is still in development, but an alpha version is already available and several Diaspora servers are already operational. These servers (known as “pods”) allow registered users to store data (like mail and photos) and maintain their own personal profile. Every pod is different: Some are invite-only, some have space limits, and some are more secure than others. You can even host your own Diaspora pod to retain absolute control of your online identity.
