Youby.us is a wiki social network. it inverts the model of existing platforms in which a user's profile and postings are authored and curated by the individual themselves to present a particular image, Youby.us allows your social circle to create and edit your profile, but restricts you from having any direct input. it is a social media platform in which your friends—not you—author your profile.

Youby.us is one project in a body of work entitled Declarations of Interdependence by John Ryan.
