Your plug & play federated social network
Bonfire aims to expand your freedom as a user of social networks, puts your data in your own hands (literally) and connects you with the people and communities you care about.
Bonfire use case: social + economic networks
It makes sense to have all of that in the same place, especially if the tools and infrastructure are set up and managed by you or someone you trust. Bonfire is working to provide such tools. And because Bonfire networks can be federated using the ActivityPub protocol, you can interact both socially and economically with any other people and groups using compatible software, which as of now means millions of people.
The diagram below mentions some groups that are planning to use Bonfire for their combined social + economic networks:
- DisCOs: distributed cooperative organizations,
- Reflow: creating circular resource flows in European cities,
- Mutual Aid Networks, which are popping up all over the world,
- And maybe cooperatives federating economically with other co-ops. Some co-ops are now federating socially in places like Social.coop using the same ActivityPub protocol, and are talking about federating economically.
