Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales launches charitable social network TPO.comWikipedia founder Jimmy Wales and mobile network The People's Operator are launching a new charitable social network called TPO.com.

The ad-free social network is primarily designed to make it simple for people to donate to charity. Wales describes TPO.com as being "similar to Twitter but better", adding that he hopes "it will be massive".

The network will be supported by The People's Operator, a mobile network that donates 10 percent of users' mobile phone bills to social causes of their choice at no extra cost to them. Wales became chairman of the network in January 2014.

"TPO puts consumers and the causes they care about first," said Wales in a statement. "We want to spread a wave of goodness across the world that benefits millions of people. The TPO Community is designed as a space that works for what people believe in and unites that with the causes they care about and a simple, commission-free way to give. The more TPO grows with the support of our members, the more we can make a positive change and the more powerful the TPO Community becomes."

Pipe, a peer-to-peer file-sharing app for Facebook along the lines of Dropbox, is set to launch for the public at large Wednesday, creating a simple way for people on the massive social network to share big files that, thus far, Facebook itself hasn't provided.

The Pipe app allows users to simply drag and drop a file for a friend to receive it directly.

"We've worked really hard to make Pipe this simple," Simon Hossell, founder and chief executive of Pipe, said in a statement. "We've made the technology invisible."

The company took its time in beta, laboring since May 2012 with a smaller cohort of users, to work out bugs and raise funds.
