Centralized architectures found in current social media networks are not the only viable way to organize social network applications. We show that there are certain desirable features of distributed architectures, and that it is possible to make a social network application including these features. This is demonstrated by the creation of Good Neighbors, a small, completely distributed social network built on top of Beaker Browser.
