Open platform for decentralized social networks and marketplaces.
Built with Substrate and IPFS.
Subsocial is a set of Substrate pallets with web UI that allows anyone to launch their own decentralized censorship-resistant social network aka community.

You can think of it as a decentralized version of Reddit or Medium, where a set of subreddits or blogs on Medium run on their own chain.

Decentralized communities
Every community can be a separate Substrate chain and connect with other communities via a Polkadot-based relay chain.
IPFS integration
Subsocial stores content of blogs and posts on IPFS + list of CIDs in Substrate storage in a corresponding struct: blog, post, comment or profile.
Personalized feed and notifications
Feeds and notifications get created per every account that follows at least one blog.
Server-side rendering (SEO)
SEO is a crucial part of every media platform. That's why Subsocial supports a server-side rendering of such pages as blogs, posts and comments.
Transparent reputation
By writing posts and commenting others, users build their reputation on Subsocial chain. It should be possible to share a reputation and transfer coins from one chain to another via Polkadot relay chain.
Full-text search
Text content of every blog and post is be indexed in ElasticSearch DB. This allows users to search for blogs and post on Subsocial UI.
Substrate Builders Program
Subsocial is one of the first 17 projects that have been carefully selected by Parity to participate in Substrate Builders Program.

The program offers business development, technical and community support to teams that are building Substrate-based blockchains (independent chains, parachains, parathreads and bridged chains).
