Manyverse

A social network off the grid
Manyverse is a social network app using the SSB protocol (Secure Scuttlebutt)
where you can write posts and share with friends nearby or over the internet.
It’s different from mainstream social networks because your data is yours, it
lives on your phone, not in the cloud. So there is no login, no company
holding your data, no ads, no tracking of your activity, it’s just you and
your friends! The app is free and open source software, and it will always
remain free.

Features:

* Write threads of posts (even when offline) and share them with friends (over the internet or nearby via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth)
* Private chats
* Emoji reactions
* Profile pages with biographies
* Attach pictures, add content warnings
* More features as we develop the app!
