Fupio - A decentralized microblogging application

Social networking communities should be free when sharing their thoughts. The platform should be democratic, and the community itself should decide on the unwanted content. Platform data should be public and private information should not be requested from the user. The user can not be forced to export any data that can not be published publicly. Ads can not run on the platform. Tools that attempt to skew user behavior can not be added to the platform.

There is always something that can be simplified. The interface should be simple.

A real-time protocol should be used to ensure seamless discussion experience.

Fupio is based on a very simple idea. In practice, we can say that it looks like FriendFeed or Reddit. Rather than adding more features, Fupio focused on few functional features. We believe that tagging the posts and keep up the good ones is helpful for the community quality.
