Planetary puts people first. Our algorithms are open source. You can choose which one you want to use and read the code to understand how it works.
Planetary for a truly distributed social network that doesn't keep your data in the cloud. Your data is hosted by your friends through cooperative mutual aid.
Planetary is all about communities. Share what you love with likeminded people and make the network feel more like you.
Planetary and secure scuttlebutt are peer-to-peer but they are not a cryptocurrency or blockchain project. The protocol puts people not money at its center. We work on mutual aid, democratic self-governance, and cooperation.
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.
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.
Your posts belong to you. You choose how and when to share them. Your data is stored locally and shared directly with your followers.
There’s no one big database where your posts are stored. You can connect to our relay servers or make your own.
We’re funded by providing services you actually want to pay for, not by selling your data or attention.
Your posts belong to you. You choose how and when to share them.
