What was App.net?

App.net was a social network. It started up in mid-August 2012 and ceased operating at 2017-03-17-06:45UTC. The strengths of that network, however small individually, are being built on by its ex-users. What follows is intended to provide a snapshot of what was. For the dynamic updates on the successor networks, see the wikis mentioned below.

Links to my wikis for its successors:

  • 10centuries.org Wiki - a complete social and media site for those who like integrations without fragmentation.
  • pnut.io Wiki - The spiritual successor to App.net.
  • Other services will emerge in the fullness of time, e.g. micro.blog.
