Why use Tent? Tent is a social network that is decentralized, like email and the web. Unlike many previous social networks Tent is not controlled by a single company. Rather, it is made up of many different service providers that all communicate with each other. Sign up for a free account at Tent.is, or even host your own server. Change service providers at any time and take your data and your network with you. Distributed is the future of social networking.
