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 posts (even when offline)
  • Share posts to friends over the internet or nearby (in the same Wi-Fi or with Bluetooth)
  • Scroll through many conversations with friends and add your own comments
  • Likes
  • More features as we develop the app!
