Some people complain about the fact that .social is so big, however, they should see it from my perspective, where I view all of the fediverse as a contest.

The most tweets/toots I like are these that I don’t understand because they always teach me something new

Chrome, Google Search, Gmail, Drive, Maps, Youtube, they are all windows Google uses to snoop on your online activity. If you have to use these products, this post discusses ways to prevent Google from sucking up your data.

Users always ask us, “How can we browse the Internet anonymously?” Unfortunately, achieving 100% anonymity online is almost impossible, but we can help you get closer:

The Track THIS tool from @Firefox lets you confuse online advertisers by giving you a fake browsing history to fool their trackers. If you’re sick of having your online activity tracked, switch to a browser that protects your and use a .

Internet service providers can see everything you do online, and some ISPs even sell your data. If this corporate surveillance makes you uneasy, here is what you can do to protect yourself:

A year ago I tried learning ActivityPub, and more or less failed. I was confounded by a spec that was so abstract I couldn't make heads or tails of it. Turns out I was missing some key things.

I have written a guide to learning about ActivityPub that I wish existed a year ago when I first set out to learn how to write social media servers that conform to the spec:

This means I'm going to continue my concerted work trying to make the fediverse a better place, in the form of best practice guides for running instances, external advocacy, and technical tutorials and training so that more people can contribute software to the fediverse at large.

You can read a partial summary of my work so far at my new Patreon page!

I'm extremely pleased to launch Run Your Own Social: How to run a small social network site for you friends.

This is a guide book to running a small, tight-knit federated social network server. It comes from my year of experience running Friend Camp. It's focused largely on SOCIAL solutions, though it does touch on the technical.

I've tried to keep it technology-neutral, and it should be a pretty easy read for anyone who's been on the fediverse for a while.

Don't forget that everybody is different! These toots are just suggestions - take the ones you think might help and leave the rest. Be kind to yourself.

Set a timer for 5 minutes and clean up the space around you.

@RogerVerhoeven You've written this toot on the same day as Mark Zuckerbers birthday.
A bit ironic imo :P
