Chaino is a social network.

Chaino is a social network. It has over 40,000 registered users.

Chaino focuses on two areas: a user privacy system gives users control over how they are seen by others and allows for different profile photos for different groups of friends. The second revolves around support of offline social activities.

The idea for Chaino came about when Ali, the CEO, was working for Intel, leading a research project on sociability in the Middle East and Africa, i.e. how social activity could be supported with new hardware based on Intel microprocessors.
