Open Source Social Networks

Most of the Social Network sites are not Open Source : FaceBook, Plaxo, MySpace,, LinkedIn …
I searched for some and here is what I found so far :

  • Mugshot is an open project sponsored by Red Hat.
  • Elgg looks more like a CMS/blogging platform. But you have to install your own.
  • Barnraiser the tools you need to take control of your identity and social network on the web. AROUNDMe is a suite of social tools; a social toolkit from which you can build your Internet identity, create networks and contribute to collaborative environments. Need to search more.
  • The Appleseed Project is an effort to create open source Social Networking software that is based on a distributed model.

Obviously, it needs more work
