OSS

Unlike Twitter, which is controlled by a centralized authority, GNU social is a network of independent servers called nodes. Federation technology allows users to communicate between nodes, preserving the unified experience of traditional social media systems, and the free GNU social software allows anybody with an Internet connection to start their own public or private node and join the network.

ChromeOS 42.0.2311.87 (Official Build) (64-bit) – A brief look

Its a little like a dog near to a buffet table, turn away and it will have a cake off there and carry on as normal without you being any the wiser.
