The Verge: adds storage:

You can think of it like iCloud or Dropbox with a social layer — a central place to store and share files across platforms and service silos — or you can think of it as free hosting for services that want to build photo-sharing, group-messaging, or Pinterest-like web applications using’s login. In fact, founder Dalton Caldwell said in an interview, a developer could bundle all of these services together and build a near-clone of Facebook.

I like the emphasis on privacy.
