Decentralized Social Networks

Decentralized Social Networks are alternatives to mainstream social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and Reddit, which run on different independent servers rather than on a centralized server owned by a centralized governing body that collects and benefits from your data. These platforms are open source and use peer-to-peer (P2P) technology, meaning that all interactions are direct between the users, without intermediation by a third party.

LBRY is a blockchain-based file-sharing and payment network that powers decentralized platforms, primarily social networks, and video platforms. LBRY’s creators also run Odysee, a video-sharing site that uses the network.
Minds is a blockchain-based social network dedicated to Internet freedom. Minds reward you with MINDS Tokens (ERC-20) every day to create popular content, refer friends, or provide liquidity.
PixelFed is an open-source and decentralized alternative to the Instagram platform focusing on image-sharing features. It is part of the Fediverse autonomous networks.
Odysee is a YouTube-like video hosting platform that uses a blockchain-based decentralized protocol and offers different video content like pop culture, music, sports, gaming, tech, and more.
Mastodon is open-source software for running self-hosted social networking services with microblogging features similar to the Twitter service.
Aether is an open-source, P2P platform for self-governing communities with auditable moderation and mod elections that serve as an alternative to Reddit.
