Welcome to Peer Social

The first private social network.

We are Peer Social

We are a team of dedicated decentralists who are researching and developing new architectures and technologies to solve some of the most pressing problems of our time—starting with social media.

Our Mantra is Responsibility

Social networks and cloud providers require users to agree to terms which includes giving up control of their personal data in return for using their network or service. They use this agreement as a blanket authorization so they can track their users online activities and behaviours. This business model represents the worst excesses of the social internet.
Peer Social has a solution.
