Diaspora, the Anti-Facebook is set to debut September 15 according to reports. The site calls itself â€œprivacy awareâ€ and â€œself-controlled.â€Â The site will likely gain popularity with those who are weary of Facebookâ€™s lack of privacy. (And blatant disregard for privacy concerns by the siteâ€™s leader.)
The founders of Diaspora, the Anti-Facebook tried to raise $10,000 to launch the site.Â When they looked for funding, they received over $200,000 from 6,500 different people.
The site will be open-source which allows people to see the sites code and modify it.Â
Despite the excitement over the siteâ€™s launch, it still faces plenty of hurdles.Â Facebook is second in traffic only to Google and there are hundreds of millions of users who log on to the site each and every day.
