I have friends on Facebook (no, seriously I do, I swear!) who are constantly posting pictures of their kids, and I’m sure you do too. I have two kids of my own and we have decided not to post their pictures online, just a personal decision we made. Sometimes though, when my kids do something awesome or I take a particularly adorable picture of them, I want to show them off and post it online, I don’t, but I get that urge sometimes. I know people often post pictures of their kids so that family members and loved ones around the world can see them and follow along with how they are growing up. It has always bugged me though to think that there are people on Facebook, who I’m not close with or that I don’t know, who can see the pictures, or that Facebook the company can see all the pictures and that they have ownership of them once they have been put on the site and can do what they like with them.
Kube is a secure and private social network designed by Redscotch Software in Nanaimo.
Here’s how it works:
The site uses a system called Peer to Peer that basically means you are communicating only with your private network and it doesn’t go through some filter owned and controlled by the company.
The other really cool thing about Kube is that it allows you to have different personas. So as you are a different person to your family, than to your childhood friends, than to your co-workers, as you will be on Kube. You have the ability to separate those segments of your life and only share things with your family that you want them to see and only share those pictures from your trip to Vegas with your buddies. So if you are sharing pictures of your kids online you can make sure only the people you approve of have access to see those pictures, and Kube doesn’t have access to any of it
