    Hi everybody,

    What you think if besides facebook, twitter, tumblr, google and other commercial services, we create an account for the anarcho-punk.net community at Mastodon, Pleroma Libretux and Diaspora to use Free Software, community, decentralized, non surveillance and not regulated services of social networks by corporations. I can help if you want. These are the projects:

    See what's happening - Mastodon
    Pleroma
    The diaspora* Project

    We could start with a Mastodon account. What do you think?

    Regards
    Praxedis

    Thank you it's a great idea, but it has to be agreed on by the collective before moving ahead. We will let you know.

    The problem with these alternative social networks is the very small user base. But i'm not against the idea. However I personally don't have enough time to manage another social media account, but if someone wants to do it then why not.

    Hi, if my opinion matters I think it is a good idea, I am not very good with social media, but if it is an alternative to centralization of the internet I would offer to help manage it. Or help in any way.

    I think not many people use it, becouse not many people use it, we as punx can help give strength to alternative social medias, apoyo la idea manito!!!

    las mejores, voy a leer un poco a ver si aprendo y puedo apoyar mas.

    Hi @ungovernable@ungovernable Yes, they have a smaller user base since these platforms are developed in community besides being Free Software and there are not corporations making profit behind them. I understand your reasons to use the commercial ones due their popularity among the societies and to reach to more people, but their users are not aware that they enrich those social network companies by giving away their data, publishing information of any kind and contributing to Big Data and Artificial Intelligence for both business and government control. It is just that being "free" services where you are the product and being used by a large number of people without questioning, it seems that this is the only thing that exists, but it is not. It's like music. The underground exists even if it doesn't look beyond the surface controlled by the ruling class.

    Hi @Gaffen@Gaffen. Thanks a lot for sharing your Mastodon accounts. I have visited your profile and the one of your band "Hearse Pileup". You play a great Punk and Grunge! It is great that besides creating music following the DIY principles, the band can reach to more people that are not in facebook nor twitter because their anti corporation standing.

    Hi @delirio punk@delirio punk Thanks for your support and your comments. I agree with you and it is true, we can make possible more people to know free and decentralized social network services if we as anti-capitalist collective use and promote these great projects that are made it by people that also hate corporations and profit using people even in a digital way.

    The usage of Mastodon is very easy and you just need to create an account here, using an email, a password and clicking "Sign Up". That is all. You can find me in Mastodon as praxedis if you want to try the service, explore its functions and do some tests pinging to me there. If our anarcho.punk.net partners agree, you and me could help managing the anarcho.punk.net Mastodon account. I share some useful videos to understand more about the topic:

    What is Mastodon


    How to use Mastodon


    Mastodon has started on 2016 and during these four years has grown a lot! So the user base is growing constantly. Also something important is that there is not any kind of censorship in Mastodon, so you could talk and share about politics or anything without "asking permission" to a company. If you @delirio punk@delirio punk or anyone has some technical doubts or need help, do not hesitate to ask me.

    That is one of many nasty actions of facebook and this is one the closest against to us nowadays @ungovernable@ungovernable. We can not trust in services that are owned by corporations that are part of the privileged class we fight against. Then we have more reasons to kick its ass and throw that scum in the rubbish. We have not to enrich them or make their job easier with the authority!

    Hey, are you still actively managing the Mastodon page?

    AnarchistFederation.net was suggested to open a Mastodon page and we're looking for someone to help manage it. If you are interested you can join the collective forum here: Anarchist Forum
