Change is hard. Even the most simple things like switching to a different social-media platform or messenger can be cumbersome. Where basically everyone is waiting for others to take the first step. Which in effect creates a deadlock for actual change. It then just becomes lip service.
Of course, this change won’t change the world. But by supporting open-source networks, which are in control of the community, we safeguard the Internet a bit more. And I think we can all agree that the Internet is the best tool to utilize activism, especially on a global scale.
This thread is basically a friend request thread for open-source social-media/messengers like Mastodon, Matrix and alike. Because an active and interesting user base is what makes a social-media platform or messenger attractive. It’s not just about features.
