Make 2019 the year of setting up personal RSS readers for you and your comrades. Don't let them rely on toxic corporate social media for their news & content .
[https://indieweb.org/microsub Microsub] enables you to follow blogs you’re interested in and [https://indieweb.org/micropub Micropub] enables the social communication. And all this can happen from a site you own and control.
@Heavysnack I'm curious, how can I use RSS to free myself from social media?
@tobi it's can't replace the ability to interact with and post content, but can replace Facebook etc as a content feed from all your preferred sources.
I've got mine setup with subscriptions to news, blogs, YouTube, this day in history etc. All without having to log in, see ads(there are some in YouTube), fall into clickhols, or scrolling through awful comments.
@Heavysnack which rss reader(s) would you recommend?
@blausky I use akregator on the desktop and newsblur on the phone
Just downloaded Feeder on Fdroid! This is sweet thanks for sharing.
social.coop is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
