    Into the Fediverse: An Ethical Social Media Pt 2: How do I join the Fediverse? Here are some good options to consider

    Danie van der Merwe · news.movim.eu / gadgeteerza-tech-blog · Saturday, 19 December - 14:50

Big Corporations are the core problem with social media platforms. We can do better and many are working together to fix that, though we are nowhere near ready yet.

This video will show you how to navigate a federated site and explain the logic process behind it. It's a difficult concept for those who are only exposed to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc which have one central site. Federated nodes (and different networks) can seamlessly work together and offer a lot more flexibility for a diversity of groups and interests.

Instead of shutting Facebook down, it should just be forced to federate then no-one need leave their friends behind if they migrate away to a different network. During this video you'll also hear how Facebook once did have some federation, which it cut off.
