Current social web platforms display a strong tendency towards centralization. Behind each of these platforms is a single company acting as a central authority. As we use the platform, we feed the central authority with our data -- and what the company then does with our information is beyond our control. There are many projects trying to solve these issues. We need to come up with sensible requirements in order to find a solution that we can advance together. Social Swarm is an open think tank initiated by the German privacy and digital rights NGO FoeBuD. We want to put our social networks back in control of their own data. We want You to be able to choose which people see your data. We want to be independent from centralized infrastructures. We want a Social Swarm.
