I love Sapadian because it is exactly what I envisioned when I was building it. To me it is a social media platform that is simple and useful, and respects personal privacy. No ads, no mining of your data. Sapadian generates revenue by donation only so please give if you have the means. Give Sapadian a try.
I launched Digital News Observer this week. It was a fun project that uses a nifty little Python engine to pull in and parse RSS feeds from a handful of web sites. The layout, in the style of an old world newspaper, allows you to read what you want and ignore the rest. Enjoy!
