Toward a GNU Consensus on Free Software for Social Networking

GNU Consensus is an umbrella project to facilitate coordination of free software social networking projects to encourage freedom, privacy, public space, and decentralization. It lives at

This is not a software package, but an effort to promote inter-operability of other free software, and provide a discussion space, and awareness program for free software developers, and other interested parties.

As part of the GNU Project, GNU/consensus promotes and fosters adoption of free software in the field of social networking. Using the GNU General Public License and the GNU Affero General Public License, developers can dedicate their code permanently to users' freedom, and thus ensure it advances the public digital space.

This project may itself produce software, and in that case, the source code will be released as AGPLv3+, or GPLv3+, as appropriate.

Please read the GNU/consensus Manifesto for more information about the mission, means, and objectives of the project.
