First of all its nothing like existing social networks we know. Eg., FB, Twitter or Instagram. It's not owned by any private company but our community. Its a private social network.

It's run using a free and open source software named as Mastodon. This software is hosted on our server. Which means we, the community, owns the data .

Its registrations are not open to public.
Instead they are provided by invitation.

Plus the platform has admin and moderators who can flag some user who doesnt belongs to the community.

Rules for admin and moderators are not set yet. Ajinkyans collectively can decide for the same.

I wish, this platform to be free of charge and no membership would be charged.

Donation from our community would be accepted to just meet the cost of running this server, maintaining the domain name.

Finally, we should restrict this platform to only Ajinkyans.

@admin where is the hosting server ? Is it managed hosting from Mastodon or we have our own server?
