    The new open source Facebook competitor has revealed its look. (looks about like Facebook)


    A post has just gone up on Diaspora’s blog revealing what the project actually looks like for the first time. While it’s not yet ready to be released to the public, the open-source social networking project is giving the world a glimpse of what it looks like today and also releasing the project code, as promised.

    At first glance, this preview version of Diaspora looks sparse, but clean. Oddly enough, with its big pictures and stream, it doesn’t look unlike Apple’s new Ping music social network mixed with yes, Facebook. A few features they note:

    • Share status messages and photos privately and in near real time with your friends through “aspects”.
    • Friend people across the Internet no matter where Diaspora seed is located.
    • Manage friends using “aspects”
    • Upload of photos and albums
    • All traffic is signed and encrypted (except photos, for now).

    Terrible name.

    It looks like a minimalist version of facebook, which started somewhat minimalist, then moved away from that look somewhere around eleventy-trillion users.

    What the world needs is more social networking sites.

    My life is so much more fulfulling when I get to read how people I haven't talked to in over 15 years are "Eating at IHOP! YUMM!" or "Taking my dog to the vet. Hope he doesn't pee on the floor again. LOL."
