https://retroshare.cc/
Retroshare establish encrypted connections between you and your friends to create a network of computers, and provides various distributed services on top of it: forums, channels, chat, mail… Retroshare is fully decentralized, and designed to provide maximum security and anonymity to its users beyond direct friends. Retroshare is entirely free and open-source software. It is available on Android, Linux, MacOS and Windows. There are no hidden costs, no ads and no terms of service.

Goals
Create a decentralized social sharing network designed with no dependencies on any corporate system or central servers.
Favor the use of strong cryptography in daily communication.
Allow people to hide information from intelligence agencies and spying companies.
Favor freedom of speech, away from any possible censorship.
Stay independent from corporate systems and centralized servers (Central services might shut down or change their terms of services at any time. Do you remember Myspace? Or German Studivz? Remember when Facebook changed their terms of service? Skype being bought by Microsoft?)
Stay a free and open-source software. Only open-source software can provide truly secure communication. Developers can read Retroshare’s source code and check that it is doing what it says.

  1. I use Aethar for lightweight P2P communities and feeds. Aether is an ephemeral network. That means, by default, most things will be deleted around the 6-month mark. It's more like Snapchat than Wikipedia. With Aether, supporter benefits is get to have the only registered alias, and can use it as an forever blog.
