Somebody asked me…
Somebody asked me - “Why are you building a social network? Do you really think you can challenge Facebook?”

If you’ve looked at Friendica and what we’re all about, you’ll quickly see that I’m not building a social network. You aren’t even close.

So then, why am I trying to convince people they should use Friendica?

Indeed. I work my butt off on this project and get nothing in return but ridicule and scorn for trying to do something good for the benefit of humanity.

But, if you really want to know, here’s why… Because “Social networking” is a business model from 2005. “Social networks” are obsolete. I want to get rid of them. I want to break down their silly little walls and open the internet so people can communicate with their friends without requiring a U.S. owned corporation to act as a go-between. Communicating with people is not a business model. It’s what we do - and it’s what the internet was designed for. Not selling stuff. That came later, and screwed up everything. 

We don’t need to agree to let people spy on our email. Why do we think that we have to accept people spying on our other online conversations and claiming ownerships of all our thoughts and photos?

What I’m building is a free internet without walls - and where people can share with their friends and not have to “sell their soul to the devil” to do so.  It may look a bit like a social network but it is much more than that. It is freedom.

That’s why I’m doing this.
