Bangalore: The anti-Facebook project, Diaspora, a privacy-aware, personally controlled social network will launch its public alpha version in October this year.

Open-source developer release will be on September 15. Diaspora is one of the most ambitious projects to launch in the recent times. Four students - Daniel Grippi, Maxwell Salzberg, Raphael Sofaer, Ilya Zhitomirskiy are the brains behind Diaspora's social network project and they aim to provide a hosted social networking solution that is controlled and owned by you.

It would be an open source platform and is designed for people who are not comfortable sharing their personal lives on services like Facebook. It remains to be seen how good it is in alpha stage at launch time and what kind of services are launched based on it.

The Diaspora Project should interest social network users who are uneasy with sharing their personal data on sites like Facebook.
