    I think you're being overly purist and somewhat elitist here. I'm not computer savvy so I'm clueless about things like mastadon etc. Everything has costs and benefits. Google allows me to access this site. Yeah I know it sucks but what am I gonna do given my basic computing skillset? Nobody is forcing you to use fuckbook or twitter. I don't use them for my own reasons. If you can acess this site by means other than google then more power to you. You could share info on the alternative means available rather than rant at us from your pedestal. However don't dis those of us who can only use the tools at hand. From where I'm sitting, your tone comes across as arrogant and unwilling to hear other points of view. I get what you're saying, but we live in pre-revolutionary times and have to make do with what we've got. OK?

    Here is an interesting video from a comedian on the propaganda machine that is facilitated by Facebook. (I mean Fakebook.)

    Hey, flying in here without reading the whole thread because I'm an asshole and the thread is long and detailed :p

    Just a couple of quick observations:

    Yes, centralised social media is shit, and until we really start migrating from it, it will continue to be shit.

    However, until these things become more mainstream; to force them out is kind of creating a gated community.

    I do think there's a point im making 'sign in with facebook' a little more disparaged. I would suggest maybe a link to some educational resources next to said buttons? The thing is, until you can get people off the platform, if you don't have these options you have equal danger of putting people off because they have to set up yet another social account.

    As a developer, ideally we'd all be linked up on secure scuttlebutt and communicating on a social feed that is hosted on the computers we are posting from.

    But I can barely get anyone I know on Masto, let alone SSB.

    And this may be a controversial statement, but these decentralised platforms can be bad for outreach and accessability.

    In short, the centralised internet is a fuck, but you can't expect to talk to other people if you walkaway straight away. And to be an open community is to care about visibility.

    Happy to RFC on these ideas though :)

    Oh, also, I concur - fuck facebook, google and twitter. Shame that google powers my emails atm D:
