Social media for humans, not algorithms

Planetary is a network for people who want to come together and connect even when the internet goes out. It's an app that doesn't keep your data in the cloud.

Don't you deserve a better social network?

Wouldn’t you rather have a social network that respected your privacy, resisted abuse and harassment, rewarded content creators and was open by default? We would too, that’s why we’re building the world’s first mainstream client for a truly distributed social network.

We're different because you're different

* You own your content
* There is no advertising
* Planetary is fully distributed
* We respect your privacy
* You control the algorithm
* End to end encryption
* Naturally spam-resistant
* Works off grid - mesh networking!
* Social media as a public commons
* You can leave at any time (there are multiple compatible apps)
* We're open source!

Built on the open secure scuttlebutt protocol

No one company should own the Internet’s public spaces, which is why we’re working with —and contributing back to— the open source Scuttlebutt project. Their core technologies let us recreate a social network experience, but in an open decentralized way that no one organisation can dominate.

Benwerd ,

Nothing less than the future of social media.

A great user experience on top of peer to peer social networking with no central owners or control. What’s not to like? The team did an excellent job - this is the slickest decentralized social media app I’ve ever seen.
