Social Experience Design for the Fediverse

Corporate social media has failed. They are anti-social and detrimental to society. The Fediverse revolves around people and true social networking. Solidground will help you to make it shine. We aim to ease the creation of new solutions, so that you can design seamless social experiences. This project is in early stages of development.

A Fresh Take On Decentralized Social Networking

By exploring social aspects methodically, together we can address them creatively.

Address Big Challenges

Solidground wants to lower the technical barriers to encourage new applications and services to emerge. With integrated specs and living documentation, solutions have interoperability fully baked in. We call these modular apps social experiences.

Building applications for the Fediverse is too hard. With no steering bodies and involved community there is growing complexity and protocol decay. We must change course, encourage adoption and further innovation.

For The Benefit Of Many

There is a gap that exists between technical experts and the people using their work. By enabling inclusive participation, more active collaboration and stronger community bonds should be established.

Solidground stimulates this by means of social coding and process guidance. We want to empower many people to help create solutions for existing fedizens, and also appeal to a broader audience of non-profits, cooperatives, government and SMB's.

Towards Social Innovation

We offer a practical approach to enable you to take social networking in a direction where online and offline aren't seen as separate. Together as creators we enter the field of social experience design or SX to translate needs into online services tailored to people, their relationships, and who they really are.

For too long now Social Media have clouded our vision of what 'social' truly means. We must reaffirm that the entire web is social in nature, and must be supportive to daily life.

Joyful Creation For The Fediverse

By Going Beyond The App • We Enter The Peopleverse

Seamless Social Experiences

Creating social experiences should be fun and as easy as possible.

Social Reimagined

With social networking we think technology nowadays. Yet it is intrinsic to human nature. Same as we have relationships and social activity in real life, so can we extend that, and build bridges towards the Fediverse. Based on open standards and a host of delightful apps we weave a social fabric that brings these two separate worlds closer together. Where all this is in support of human needs and our daily lives, we will call this the Peopleverse.

United In Diversity

An exciting future lies in front of us. The Fediverse has a unique, grassroots culture of independent people that interact. Fedizens are passionate folks and value-driven. We will foster thriving communities, interconnected, where people are friends that collaborate. We build our own Spiral Island, our common home. With safe spaces for everyone to discover common interests, exchange ideas, tell great stories and forge new friendships.

Peopleverse is a vision for the Fediverse that involves deeply social human interactions.
