Elgg: The open alternative to Facebook?

Elgg seems to have it all, and it's open. Seems like a better alternative. It's about trust, and as long as Facebook remains closed it's very difficult to feel good about going all-in.

Can we federate Elgg sites?

A comment from the University of Brighton where they have 36,000 users:

Elgg is now being used formally within course and modules and less formally to bring together people with similar interests - enabling people to share information, reflections and comment across course boundaries and develop something very different to anything we've had before. I firmly believe we're taking the first steps from a Virtual Learning Environment to a Shared Learning Environment.

That sounds so nice!
