Does /tech/ participate in the Fediverse? Seems to me that this is the sort of social media we should be trying to get people into, even if social media itself is kinda trash.103 posts and 6 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.
I've always disliked social media, but after the news at >>>/leftypol/1066439, I've been considering getting into the Fediverse. You see, I would like the people who DO use social media (basically everyone) to be on better platforms, but I feel I cannot demand that from them if I cannot even use them myself. For instance, it would be disingenuous to ask Comrade Cockshott to start his presence in Mastodon after getting banned from fedbook if I could not be there to follow him and boost his follower stats. So..
So, /tech/, any thoughts on the Fediverse? What are some good instances and communities I could join? What are some people I should be following? What implementations are better, Pleroma, Mastodon, something else?
Also fediverse general.
Friends force other friends to use adblockers
This is dumb, just fucking talk to people. There are literally no consequences to being an out in the open communist
That isn't true and it isnt primarily about that. For everything, decentralization is the better option
What mastodon instances are actually worth joining reeee
