@switchingsocial
Open source and fediverse is really cool, but I have simple and the most valuable question: how to move your contacts to fediverse things? For example, all my colleagues and family use telegram for personal messaging and slack for work-related things. Could you give me some ideas about how to "advertise" such tools like matrix for them?

Big props to @omgubuntu and @protonmail for putting Mastodon links on their website templates alongside their centralised social media links (see attachments) :blobcheer:

This is great for normalising the concept of decentralised social media 👍

If you have a Fediverse account, please do mention it on your website! The more people see these icons, the more comfortable they will be finding out more.

#Fediverse #SocialMedia #Alternatives

In a big sprint today, all the listed on switching.social had their matching translation in ! Look at it on switching.ml

Also @switchingsocial I suggest you add the new mobile apps that the Tor Browser released, they're really worth a try!

In risposta a una class action riguardante il caso di #CambridgeAnalytica, i legali del #social network hanno dichiarato che #Facebook non può aver violato i diritti di #privacy degli utenti perché “non c’è nessuna attesa di privacy” su Facebook e che “non c‘è nessuna invasione della privacy, perché non c’è privacy”. In originale: “no expectation of privacy... There is no invasion of privacy at all, because there is no privacy.”
