Sone is a plugin for your Freenet node that gives you the possibility to communicate with many other people. It has been called “Twitter/Facebook for Freenet,” but true to Freenet’s nature it’s fully decentralized and uncensorable. It also doesn’t share your contacts with anyone, doesn’t record audio or video from your computer, and generally tries to play nice with your privacy (i.e. sharing anything is optional).
Sone is a “micro-blogging platform,” i.e. it’s targeted at short texts, maybe containig a link or two. The created post is then also used to center the discussion around it, replies are shown directly below the post, allowing to follow a discussion quickly and painlessly.
This is what it looks like for me:
Sone as a platform is completely content-agnostic. However, as I want Sone to be a place where everybody feels welcome there are certain types of content that I do not wish to see on Sone: hate speech towards minorities of any kind (based on gender, identity, religion, ethnicity, upbringing, place of birth, sexual orientation), conspiracy theories, esoteric crap, right-wing incel misogyny, and basically anything else that is geared towards making you feel better at the expense of someone who is powerless to stop you.
Mind you, this is not a license agreement. Sone is free software by all this term implies. You can use it for whatever you want, I just prefer you didn’t use it for the purposes outlined above. If you think this unacceptable to you, great, don’t use Sone and it will be a better place for everybody.
If you still think Sone is the place for you to be, read on!
