The first free integrated Social Platform with many services and applications, developed with collaborative feedback.
Kaana adheres to the values of the open source movement, and so its code is published and it does not store user data. It aims to provide a high quality and engaging interface as an open source social network, rivalling the Establishment social networks, but fundamentally differing from them in essence. In this way Kaana hopes to fulfill the desires of those users wishing to leave Facebook, Twitter, etc. due to legitimate privacy concerns as well as offering a positive example of establishing concrete, popular alternatives to dystopian social networks. At the present it functions as its own social network (with potentiality to add many new features) and, in the interests of a realistic transition, it also functions as an overall internet/social network aggregator. This means that users will still be able to follow others on current widely used social networks without compromising their own personal privacy, all while benefiting from similar services on Kaana, but in a functional, open source and alternative way.
The founder and main developer is Albert Isern Alvarez. A non-profit platform whose funding is based on donations. Founded in 2012 by Albert with only 12 years, he wanted to contribute his grain of sand to improve this world, since the current platforms sell people's data or include a lot of advertising.
The platform has been in beta mode for all this time but now Albert would like to be able to expand his team and hire programmers to get the platform fully up and running in less than a year.
The current team needs to find programmers, translators, vision contributors, investors, internet security & cryptocurrency-ico expert. will also need computer material such as servers, enterprise level internet connection. All the contributions of this campaign will be destined to it.
Kaana is open source and its code is completely public on Gitlab.
It is possible to visit the platform kaana.io, it is functioning, but you may experience that many features do not work as they are still in development.
