Watch out Facebook, the Occupy protest is making its own social network. The Global Square is expected to launch in January 2012, providing a secure space for Occupy protestors to organize, share, and meet fellow protestors, according to its developers. It will also boast a Facebook-like news feed. Unlike Twitter and Facebook however, new Global Square members must be sanctioned by existing ones before being accepted.
This news comes just days after Twitter reports it was subpoenaed by the Massachusetts DA’s office for Occupy Boston account information.
Developers hope to get the site up and running as soon as January, giving protesters somewhere to occupy during wintertime: their computers.
