Federated decentralized social networks and communities allow users to communicate independently of the network and community. This is the main difference between decentralized social networks and centralized social networks like Facebook and Twitter.

DINO (Decentralized In Name Only) Vs. True Decentralization

the true decentralization is based on the direct user to user communication. This way of communication solves the privacy and censorship issues of the centralized communication. 

An implementation of a true decentralization may still use a blockchain – not as a central element but as a support element in the implementation.

A successful true decentralization project must include the following mandatory elements:

  • minimum decentralized identity
  • decentralized network of bridges/nodes
  • personal decentralized web site
