Friendica is an open source, free social web server running on the popular LAMP stack. Think WordPress or Drupal, but for social. It is a mature platform with over two years of development behind it, and provides a wide range of connectors to both legacy and indie social networks. Your "friends" can be from Facebook, Diaspora, Twitter, StatusNet, pump.io, weblogs and RSS feeds - and even email. No other project has ever brought together the social universe into a single federated stream to this degree.
Our mission is to provide a platform for hospitality and culture exchange and to manage the volunteers involved. The safety of our members and their privacy is our main concern.
With members from many different countries and cultural backgrounds we highly value the challenge and opportunity to learn from each other and openly listen to different opinions, critics and suggestions.
For us the "how" of working together is of key importance and our work style is reflected in our work ethics and organisational values.
