Diaspora is all about doing your Facebook thing, but with privacy… even though FB CEO Zuck says your privacy’s dead. Diaspora says “you maintain ownership of everything you share on Diaspora.”
Path is all about a discrete social network in which your favorite moments are shared with friends, and it’s geared toward connecting you and your friends via a mobile app.
Now, imagine that you could maintain ownership of your personal information and share your favorite moments with Path’s cool interface….
Thing is… these companies don’t even have to merge. Path could just do a little something-something on top of of Diaspora’s open-source social network platform, or just tell their users that they own their content.
Problem is… monetization… but not really. If Path can leverage its current user base and expand that nimble base, what’s a better social platform to handle my virtual currency and trust with my credit card info? Huh?
