The decentralized social network with thousands of communities by and for the people.

Meet Planetary

The future is decentralized

Be independent: explore and join communities, or just create your own!

Planetary is all about communities. Share what you love with likeminded people and make the network feel more like you.

Create and develop new communities with your own set of rules. Each one works as an independent social network.

Planetary communities

Experience freedom, practice tolerance and appreciate the diversity of humanity.

Social media browser app

A change of paradigms

The social media browser

Think of it as the Mozilla Firefox of social networks. A tool that allows you to discover and interact with hundreds of social networks out there in the decentralized web.

The world’s first mainstream client for a truly distributed social network that doesn't keep your data in the cloud.

About the protocol

Built by and for the community

We make open source for a decentralized social web

Planetary is building a social media commons. That includes the right of our users to see, modify, and redistribute the application and its underlying code.

We’re working together to change the world and we want you to join us.

Multiple apps to explore the network

Is there a web version?
What about Android?

Planetary runs over the Secure Scuttlebutt network. SSB is an open platform, and there are already apps for Android, Firefox and most operative systems.

We're working hard to smooth out the initial experience on Planetary but if you want to join the community over another Platform, here are some of the best options:

It's all about people, not data

We're different because you're different

You have something to say and you’d like to build community without building someone else’s brand. We’re here for creators and artists, makers and hackers.

You own your content

You own your data

Your posts belong to you. You choose how and when to share them. There are no servers keeping your data.

You own your content

Planetary is decentralized

There’s no one big database where your posts are stored. You can connect to our relay servers or make your own.

You own your content

There's no advertising

We’re funded by providing services you actually want to pay for, not by selling your data or attention.

You own your content

We respect your privacy

Your posts belong to you. You choose how and when to share them.
