Have you guys heard about #Session? It's a brand new private messenger that doesn't require a phone number. I've just added my Session ID to my profile if you'd like to get in touch / try it out 😉 #GetSession

@nezhac I've heard about Conversations but I don't know anyone who actually uses it. Which is funny because nobody seems to be using Session too. I guess I'll have to stick with Signal to chat with my nontechnical friends.

@michal this is always a problem when trying to start a new network or protocol, in the beginning few people are using it. I don't know any better way than spreading awareness starting with friends. The reason I pointed out is because the structure of the network is federated, anyone can run their own server, similar to mastodon, making the network more censorship resistant. Session seems to be centralised, they control all the nodes. Do you have any more info on it?


@michal although signal or session is surely better than chatting in plain text, you still have to trust the company is doing what they say they are. And if one day they decide to pull the server plug it's all over
