GNU social

https://www.gnu.org/software/social/
Powerful social network that is federated.

GNU social gives you a powerful social network that is federated.

GNU social is a social networking platform. It helps people in a community, company or group to exchange short status updates, do polls, announce events, or other social activities (and you can add more!). Users can choose which people to "follow" and receive only their friends' or colleagues' status messages. It provides a similar service to proprietary social network sites, but is much more awesome.

With a little work, status messages can be sent to mobile phones, instant messenger programs (using XMPP), and specially-designed desktop clients that support the Twitter API.

GNU social supports an open standard called OStatus that lets users in different networks follow each other. It enables a distributed social network spread all across the Web.
