Mistpark Server
Version 2.0 alpha
IMPORTANT: Please see the file INSTALL for system requirements.
Mistpark introduces a new generation of social networks. Mistpark Server
allows you to interact with other members of the Mistpark community using
the DFRN (Distributed Friends and Relations Network) protocol. Other networks
(such as Diaspora, OneSocialWeb,, etc.) will be supported in the
future as their products mature and protocol and privacy/rights issues are
resolved between these networks.
It's your network now. If social networking isn't what you thought it would
be, help us to make it better.
A single instance of Mistpark Server supports up to several hundred people

using commodity hosting hardware. Each of these people can connect with any
other mistpark/DFRN cell anywhere in the world and share photos, links,
status updates, whatever. Also available from Mistpark Labs is

Mistpark Personal Edition, which supports a single user.
Mistpark may also be closed off from the global community and used to support
social networking amongst corporate, educational, religious, and other private
communities. This makes it an excellent choice for providing a safe social
networking environment to young teenagers, as opposed to (for instance)

Every user has unlimited profiles available. There is a "public profile" which
can be seen by anybody. Additional profiles may be tailored to specific
groups or individuals - and shown when a known friend visits your site.

Groups may be setup for closed conversations (like Diaspora's "aspects"). In
this way your conversations with drinking buddies may be kept separate from
conversations with co-workers (for instance).
