>From a standpoint of ease of setup, I would suggest either Friendica
(http://friendica.com) or Buddycloud (http://buddycloud.org). The last
time I installed diaspora, it required a very large number of gems,
which indicated a fairly large footprint. Buddycloud's use of XMPP, an
established standard, is a big plus.
