Many of us remember the days of Friendster, MySpace and Facebook. But, now there's only one left that reigns supreme and it looks like it's going to stay that way for awhile to come. Diaspora was launched two years ago when everyone on Facebook had an uproar over privacy settings. Indeed, Facebook was pushing the envelope but eventually the World took the medicine regardless if they wanted to or now.
The site allowed users to keep their data private and portable (to where, I have no idea) it had a flood of interest but it took a long time to compete with the monstrous Facebook.
Time has come to an end though for Diaspora, their founders have called it quits and now it's up to the community to see how long it survives. Farewell Diaspora, at least you tried.
