App.net (often called "ADN") is a multi-purpose social platform with a strong and diverse user and developer ecosystem.
As a user, App.net 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 App.net. Beyond microblogging, find 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 App.net API documentation and the appdotnet github repository.
This Wiki is serves as an App.net knowledge-base and is maintained by volunteers.
