Some Fediverse alternatives to "big tech" social media:

Twitter ➡️ @Mastodon

Instagram ➡️ @pixelfed

YouTube ➡️ @peertube

Twitch ➡️ @owncast

Goodreads ➡️ @bookwyrm

Facebook Groups ➡️ @mobilizon

Medium ➡️ @writefreely

You don't need an account on all of these in order to interact with them.

Because they all use the ActivityPub open protocol, you can (for example) use a Mastodon account to follow someone on PixelFed or vice versa. That's why they are collectively known as the Fediverse, because they federate together at a technical level.

Also, this is an incomplete list, there are many other Fedi projects out there such as @funkwhale or @inventaire that are not direct alternatives but are their own thing.

Anyone know a Masto instance for gardeners? It might be the gateway for my wife to get off FB. #ask #garden

EU folks, the latest @EU_Commission proposal for scanning private communications and undermining end-to-end encryption is an extreme threat to privacy.

It threatens the right to meaningful encryption and would force your communications to be subject to scanning and classification by AI outside of your control. Truly dystopian shit.

This won't become law without the EU parliament's assent, so please follow this closely and speak up. See EDRI's analysis here:

How can I improve the fediverse.info people directory?

I have a few ideas:

- Allow registration via statuses that contain hashtag topics so you don't need to pollute your bio

- User avatars (held off on this as it would require moderation)

- Topic intersection (group results by multiple topics)

- Filter by instance/domain

- Use localStorage to keep track of profiles you seen to show fresher results

Any more? Boosts appreciated!

Is there any interest in an official Pixelfed hosting service?

Pay as low as $5/month for your own instance with an export feature to easily migrate your data to your own server down the road if you choose.

This could help fund development and our other initiatives like fediverse.info!

Back on @pinafore after briefly switching back to Mastodon (web) app. Pinafore just has a better UI.

@aral I wish there was a lightweight Mastodon server that was specifically geared to single person instances.

Do you know of one?

Dit is dus waarom Mastodon beter is. Daar maak je een filter voor een paar uur, een week, voor altijd. En of dat filter geldt voor de timeline, of enkel de notificaties, bijvoorbeeld, etc

RT @rwiegers@twitter.com

Dit is dus een avond waarop als #Eurovision hater van Twitter moet wegblijven. #timelinevervuiling
