Diaspora, the new open source social networking site is out and for now it can be accessed by invitation only. Diaspora’s foundation was laid in October 2010 by four geeks. It was to be released in the 2010 itself but due to some issues, it was delayed. I got the invitation toady itself, so thought of sharing my experience with my readers.
First impression, the login page is a simple with only the Diaspora Logo. But as I entered the the social networking site, the first impression was that I have logged into my Google+ account but with a black theme. It took some time for me realize that it is a different social networking site than Google Plus. It is tough to find major differences in both the social networking sites.
As you start exploring, some things will look similar to Facebook also. I don’t understand the point of releasing such similar products. We have already had Facebook then came Google Plus and now Diaspora. Google Plus has already become so boring as far as I am concerned that now I can’t even stand it on my Gmail navigation bar.
Diaspora has the same Circles concept as in Google Plus but known as Aspects. Similar buttons in the navigations bar on top as in the Google Plus. Actually, there is no exceptionally new feature to notice. There major difference it has is that it’s an open source social networking site.
