Welcome to the wiki (often called "ADN") is a multi-purpose social platform with a strong and diverse user and developer ecosystem.

As a user, lets you interact with a vibrant international community using a wide variety of apps and still own your own data. Whether it's the 256 character allowance in the conversation streams, or a passion for social interaction, users appreciate the ability to have genuine and meaningful conversations on[1]. Beyond microblogging, there are topic-based chat rooms, private messaging, community music video casts, as well as regular user-driven events.

As a developer, you can build on top of a platform that is ad-free and puts users first, as well as interact directly with other developers and end-users in an innovation-friendly community. Developers looking to build apps should also check out the developer resources.

This Wiki is serves as an knowledge-base and is maintained by volunteers.
