About


Known allows any number of users to post to a shared site with blog posts, status updates, photographs, and more.

Its robust open source framework can be used to build fully-fledged community sites, or a blog for a single user. It's up to you.

Known is compatible with most shared web hosts. It can also run on cloud infrastructure, taking advantage of services like S3 and ElasticSearch.
