Merry Christmas fediverse.

We are an ethical alternative to Instagram.

The project is still young, but we are getting close to a polished v1.0 release with federation support!

We can't wait to join the fediverse. ❤️

"standing on the shoulders of giants"

This project would not be possible without the pioneering work of evanp and @cwebber along with @Gargron and @mmn and many others!

I really look forward to the May 31st beta launch of pixelfed.org

Did you know you can follow hashtags on ?

Click a hashtag, then the follow button and you'll see them when you browse timelines.

Forgot which hashtags you follow? Go to Settings -> Relationships -> Hashtags to view all the hashtags you follow.

You can now edit the license of your statuses. We're working on adding more fields to edit, stay tuned!

We have removed like counts from Discover, Hashtag and Profile pages.

Like counts on posts will be replaced with "Liked by" and the count will only be visible to the status owner in our next release.

Hey people new to Mastodon!

Did you know that Mastodon is part of a wider network called the Fediverse?

These (and more) are on the Fediverse too:

PixelFed - an Instagram alternative (pixelfed.org)

PeerTube - a YouTube alternative (joinpeertube.org)

WriteFreely - a blogging platform like Medium (writefreely.org)

Lemmy - a Reddit alternative (join.lemmy.ml)

You can follow Fediverse accounts from Mastodon, because Fediverse platforms talk to each other.

Network Timeline will be shipping in the next release (v0.10.11).

New and existing instances can take advantage of a new discovery feature to bootstrap federation (with other Pixelfed instances) without relays or follow bots.

Manage media with Drive, a new way to browse, edit and organize your photos and videos.

Available soon!

Talking & connecting is a basic human need, so why should we allow our online interaction to be seized by companies that (by commercial design) are after personal data? Especially for public services like national/European administration citizens deserve to connect in a way that serves them, instead of data-hungry third parties.

NGI Zero is happy to announce a series of webinars and a workshop organized together with the #ActivityPub-community & #fediverse-devs on April 19, 26 and 29.

Hello Creative Commons!

You can now add a CC license to your posts.

We are working on federation support and the ability to change licenses on older posts.

Really excited for FediDB, its something I wish existed when I started Pixelfed.

I hope it helps bring fediverse developers closer together and encourages greater compatibility across implementations!

We choose to experiment with post edits and do other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard.

If we want better alternatives we need to take risks and accept when they fail. 🚀

After almost a year of development, I am happy to announce will be launching to the public this weekend!

Building ActivityPub applications will be much easier with FediDB.

Special thanks to @NGIZero for funding development of this project!
