Online social networks with millions of users are very popular nowadays. They provide a platform for the users to present themselves and to interact with each other. In this paper, we present a totally distributed platform for social online networks based on the p2p paradigm, called LifeSocial.KOM. It provides the same functionality as common online social networks, while distributing the operational load on all participating nodes. LifeSocial.KOM is plugin-based and extendible, provides secure communication and user-based data access control and integrates a monitoring component which allows the users and operators to observe the quality of the distributed system.
