Social networking has been on everyone’s lips for some time already, what with Facebook vanquishing their foes for quite some time already – although they might be getting a new competitor in the form of Google+. Well, how about going about on a new social network known as the Freedom Box, where you can add it to any home network in the form of a small $100 server? Of course, some folks feel might just be more cumbersome than ever before, but do take some time to know more about the Freedom Box. The brainchild of James Vasille of the Software Freedom Law Center, the Freedom Box will do away with corporately controlled networks.

The reason behind this? James figured out that it might just help companies such as AT&T and Verizon to jump aboard the social networking bandwagon. We are not too sure whether such an idea is going to take off or not, since it would mean having additional clutter around the home with one more box to power, and I don’t think people are going to collect social networking accounts the way they do credit cards – it is going to be a hassle keeping track of all of them.
