urls often contain tracking information added to the end of them. when you are linking articles, stuff like the "utm_source" and "fbclid" sections allow people to track where you got the link from and how you are spreading it. this allows cops & corps to map out social groups.
while you can remove that stuff by hand, there's a firefox/chrome addon called "neat URL" that comes with an existing blocklist that automatically cleans off a lot of that stuff.

It's Amazon Strike Day today! Please don't buy anything off of Amazon in solidarity with the worker protesting terrible working conditions.
Amazon also owns a lot of services so try to avoid using them as well: Twitch, IMdB, Whole Foods, and Audible.
This strike can be very effective, so please don't scab!
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
