Well, the much awaited open source social-networking project by Diaspora is sending out private alpha invites. Like WordPress for blogging, so is their concept for social-networking. We believe once the code is built and ready it would be available to anybody for download and to setup their own social-networking sites.
I got an invite as well and found it more or less similar to Google Plus. Check it out yourself.
This project is not to fight against or kill any other existing social-networks, it probably lets you connect to all of them as well and run an independent social-networking site if you wish to own one.
I need one to check out how it is -
