Does anyone know if there is anything like for Matrix?

Hi, all. I'm relocating from, both because the admin is considering shutting it down and because I'd already been looking to get on a larger instance.

Sorry, those who followed me there get to see my introduction posts again...

I wish there were as many matrix home servers as there are Mastodon instances.

YouTube. Like PeerTube but centralized.

Facebook. Like but centralized.

WhatsApp. Like Matrix but centralized.

i made this if anyone needs help convincing their friends to move away from birdsite
