    so who wants a secure facebook that doesnt hand over your identity to the big time players?

    well since and because of the recent scandals over the whole facebook privacy issue a few college kids got together and are doing just that.

    from the article via thenytimes.com

    "How angry is the world at Facebook for devouring every morsel of personal information we are willing to feed it?

    A few months back, four geeky college students, living on pizza in a computer lab downtown on Mercer Street, decided to build a social network that wouldn’t force people to surrender their privacy to a big business. It would take three or four months to write the code, and they would need a few thousand dollars each to live on.

    They gave themselves 39 days to raise $10,000, using an online site, Kickstarter, that helps creative people find support."

    and here is the website url http://www.joindiaspora.com/ but it wont be up until the end of summer.

    In my opinion, eventually everyone will succumb to greed. Their angle can be to keep your information secure but in the end when advertising companies offer these kids a couple of million they will probably give away your personal information faster than fb would.

    Just my 2 cents.
