Preparing To Launch Something Amazeballs


OWDY named official social network of Ladonia

Owdy is a groundbreaking, paradigm-shifting, next-level social network game changer built on the premise of synergistic user-centric arrogance. Owdy knows you don't give a shit about what your friends post, so Owdy doesn't let content get in the way of what truly makes for a good social experience: rushing to get your username before everybody else and re-defining who your friends are. Don't have any friends? No problem - OWDY is the only social network that lets you friend yourself!

New: Owdy knows how frustrating it is when other social networks are down. As a way to capitalize on their misfortune OWDY now monitors Twitter and Facebook uptime and when they go down allows you to post a status complaining about other social networks being down. Just login and you'll see the new feature at the top of your profile!

Owdy is Invite Only. Go ahead and request an invite, and we'll make sure to send you one just as soon as Robert Scoble's made you feel as though your life won't be complete without one - but well after all of your friends get theirs. While you're waiting, we'll send you emails about all the new features you still can't access.








Your social network is owned by an advertising pentavirate: the Queen, the Vatican, the Gettys, the Rothschilds, and Colonel Sanders.

Every post you share, every friend you make, every link you follow, and every breath you take is tracked, recorded, and converted into data. This data is then analyzed, split apart, put back together, turned 5" to the right and sold to the highest bidder. Advertisers buy your data so they can show you re-targetted ads for the things you've already bought. You are the product that's bought and sold.

We believe there is a better way, the OWDY way. We believe in autocracy audacity. We believe in beauty, simplicity, synergy, and mild opaqueness. We believe that the people who make things and the people who use them should be in partnership. Which is why we'll never sell your data, instead we'll simply give it to the advertisers for free, thus eliminating the lure of filthy lucre from rearing its ugly head into the equation.

We believe that you care more about defining your friends than reading what they have to share. We believe that statuses, likes, and comments only get in the way of this superficial display of self importance. We believe you'll request an invite just to secure your username in case we end up being the next big thing. We believe your friends will have accounts before you and it will drive you insane.

We believe a social network can be a tool for selling our startup at a tidy profit empowerment. Not a tool to deceive, coerce, and manipulate - but a place to claim your username and re-define your friends.
