Following-up the comment of Sam Boyer, in Kune we are precisely trying to focus on groups and collaboration. That is, not just building an alternative federated social network for communication, but twisting the focus towards communication for collaboration (regardless if it's on a doc, on a map, on a gallery of images...). I'd encourage you to try a demo:

In the 15M / takethesquare movement in Spain we have been using n-1, an implementation of Lorea since May, for coordination and information sharing between the hundreds of assemblies in all the cities of Spain.
It's a really great tool, althought it would be so great that more developers would get into continuing to improve it even more.

Last night Issac Wilder told me about Lorea:
"Lorea is a project to create secure social cybernetic systems, in which human networks will become simultaneusly represented on a virtual shared world.Its aim is to create a distributed and federated nodal organization of entities with no geophysical territory, interlacing their multiple relationships through binary codes and languages."
...Lorea word comes from the Basque language and means flower...
