Tent looks like a protocol designed for FreedomBox, but it's not yet free:

"To prevent fragmentation before launch, the original authors currently
retain copyright."

"Introducing 'Ted' - The decentralized social web"

http://j.mp/Q0eDjz  (tent.io)

   "Tent is a new protocol for open, distributed social networking.  What
    we believe - The Tent Manifesto What makes Tent different?  Tent is
    decentralized, not federated or centralized. Any Tent server can
    connect to any other Tent server. All features are available to any
    server as first-class citizens. Anyone can host their own Tent server.
    Tent servers can also be run as Tor hidden services to create a social
    darknet for at-risk organizers and activists. Anyone can write
    applications that connect to Tent in order to display or create user
    content.  Relationships are between users, independent of their
    service providers, so users take their data and relationships with
    them when they change Tent service providers. Every user decide which
    other users can follow them and what information will be shared with
    each of their followers."
