Due to the increasing popularity of online social networking services, more and more people have been outsourcing their personal data to these service providers. Data privacy has gradually become a big concern. Decentralized social network proposed in recent researches has been a promising alternative. But there lacks an efficient system of decentralized social network with complete social networking functions. In this thesis, we design a new framework of decentralized social network and implement the prototype. Our experiments shows that our design protects data privacy as well as achieve communication efficiency.
