Abstract

Almost 2.5 billion people on Earth use some form of social networking. Account data is harvested and accessed by large corporations every day. Information about anyone is publicly accessible due to user profile indexing from search engines. Mainstream social networks claim ownership of all uploaded data and multimedia content, therefore waiving all rights over the content.

Sociall is a new generation of networking. It is a secure and private decentralised social network for all. Sociall encrypts all data and multimedia uploads and stores it securely all over the world, making it completely decentralised. The platform is private and discourages search engines from viewing user profiles or displaying them in search results.

Sociall does not claim ownership of any uploaded data or multimedia to the system. All information belongs to the uploading user.

The platform utilises its own easy to use cryptocurrency called SCL. It is used to pay for all goods and services rather than traditional money. Think of SCL as the native currency of the platform instead of using multiple different currencies that usually come with conversion fees.

Sociall will supply all accounts with a decentralised wallet to securely store SCL and other popular cryptocurrencies. All account wallets will exist within a series of smart contacts on the Ethereum blockchain, making it completely decentralised and uncontrollable from anyone other than the wallet’s creator. Adding SCL to an account will be a breeze as the wallet will have the ability to convert many different forms of currency to SCL.

Sociall plans to move the entire platform to self-governing. This means that users on Sociall will be able to assist with keeping the platform clean and safe by removing spam and offensive posts. All users who contribute to this will be compensated in SCL. Eventually, the entire platform will be run by the users instead of a centralised controlling entity. The users will even have the ability to make updates and fix issues, thanks to open-source and pull-requests.

Sociall is giving the power back to the people.


DecentralisedDecentralised

All data and multimedia uploads are stored within the encrypted decentralised storage solution that is built and maintained by Sociall.

The team is already working on a solution that utilises IPFS, a peer-to-peer hypermedia protocol, for further decentralision of the platform.


Self-GoverningSelf-Governing

Sociall is slowly moving the entire platform to self-governing. This means that users on Sociall will be able to assist with keeping the platform clean and safe by removing spam and offensive posts.

This “self-governing” feature will give the power back to the people instead of having all power sit with the owning entity. All users that participate will be compensated in SCL for their services.


WalletDecentralised Wallet

Sociall account wallets will be created through a decentralised smart-contract process where there is no owning entity.

The setup entity, being Sociall, will not have control over any funds kept in a user’s account wallet and will never be able to process any transactions on behalf of the user – making it completely decentralised.

Simple wallet SCL top-ups with crypto and fiat are in the roadmap.


FacebookFacebook Migration Tool

The team is currently working on a Facebook migration tool to make the move over to Sociall as painless as possible. Data such as your user profile, recent posts, and friends list can all be ported over to Sociall.

Open-SourceOpen-Source

A majority of Sociall’s projects will be moved to open-source just after mid 2018.

The project may eventually open some repositories up to pull-requests, although this is yet to be confirmed. Outside developers will be able to contribute to the development of Sociall by creating pull-requests on the public repos. If the Sociall development team reviews the request to be of benefit to the platform, then it will be approved.

Open-sourcing all of Sociall’s systems displays transparency to the community.


SCL

The platform utilises its own easy-to-use cryptocurrency, called SCL. It is used to pay for all goods and services rather than traditional money.

Think of SCL as the native currency of the platform instead of using multiple different currencies that usually come with conversion fees. SCL is an ERC20 based token on the Ethereum blockchain.

SCL is tradable on many popular cryptocurrency exchanges.

 

Sociall believes that privacy is a fundamental human right.

  • Search engines will never be allowed to index your profile.
  • All feeds are chronologically ordered. We do not manipulate or change the order of your content.
  • We do not share your personal information with anyone.
  • Anything that you delete from Sociall is deleted permanently. We do not store copies.
  • We do not use facial recognition technology.
  • No snooping or surveillance on your activities or data.

 

Don’t believe us? Wait until we’re open-source in the coming months to see for yourself.
