On November 23, 2010, Diaspora announced that it would start sending private alpha invites to its backers, followed by those on the mailing list.
In case you forgot about Diaspora, or maybe never really knew much about it, Diaspora is supposed to be the great "Facebook Killer." Yeah, remember when people were threatening to leave Facebook over the privacy issue? Well, this product is the outcome of that movement. Four college students from New York University decided to "reinvent social networking online." The idea is that everyone should have total control over their data. This means photos, stories, and the like. With Diaspora, users can decide who gets access to certain information.
Unlike Facebook, where everything is hosted on Facebook's servers, Diaspora will allow users to download and host its own server.
