integrate all of your social networking sites on one dashboard and enable
you to decide how public you wanted to be. You wanted to connect with a
friend? You could do it directly from your own server to your friend's own
server without an intermediary. You wanted to advertise something more
broadly on Facebook or Twitter? You could do that too. Unfortunately,
Diaspora never moved away from its pod focus to build a better HootSuite.
