Facebook has recently admitted that its greatest threat, looking to the future, is federated platforms.
Many federating platforms (like PeerTube, a video sharing software, or WriteFreely, a blogging software) are springing up around the federating system.
Capitalist websites like YouTube, Facebook and Twitter are getting progressively worse in how they act, in their quest for profits.
Meanwhile, the fediverse is only getting stronger, powered by money through voluntary donations and the hard work of thousands of admins.
Federation is a positive path forward for the future of the internet, has liberated people and allowed them to form regenerative communities, and is helping to educate people about alternative ideas and methods to those promoted by capitalist business.
It's really encouraging to see the fediverse doing so well.
+ I'm old enough to remember the Web of the 1990s/ 2000s.
It was a maze. You followed hypertext links, stumbled into forums and early troll-caves, used Slashdot and GoTo, experimented with LiveJournal and Blogger.
It wasn't safe, it was filled with weirdness, appealed heavily to geeks and loners. Being on the web in that era was a serious trip.
But it wasn't corporate. It wasn't the tool of major governments, yet. It was defiantly decentralised, and when you were online...
... you felt free.
I am a autistic trans person in Canada, i like to surf posts and casually research topics online between many other special interests of mine. And I produce subliminal affirmation videos on YouTube. Yeah, I am that creative.
