Mastodon: We shall see what will happen to Twitter, as we all remember Myspace, and Facebook’s flaws

Posted by in category: internet

I am going another route, and think Lifeboat, and others to may want to think about accounts with Mastodon, and others. We often empower what we don’t like and complain about. How does Mastodon work? Well for starters you can get a dedicated server, you moderate yourself, 🙄…and:

“Mastodon is a social media network comprised of nodes (called ”servers” or ”instances”), each running special software. Anyone can run their own Mastodon instance (if they have the proper dedicated server), which can then link to others in a federation or remain private. Individuals or companies can have complete control over individual Mastodon servers, so there are still centralized points of administration, but it’s not as concentrated as in the case of Twitter, Tumblr, or Facebook.

The Mastodon software is open source. It is based on an open-source social networking protocol called ActivityPub, which is developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (the same organization that maintains standards for the web.)

Mastodon is an open source decentralized social network — by the people for the people. Join the federation and take back control of your social media!
