i'm interested in options for sharing more pictures of my kids with close friends and family, but like *only* with them (not also with facebook, or strangers). so far the ideas i've brainstormed are:
* password-protected directory and/or blog on one of my servers
* a pixelfed instance??
am i missing anything? because none of these sound very promising 😫😫
@redoak Neither Lychee or Nextcloud need to involve a 3rd party, like Facebook, etc, but there is a bit of a learning curve, though IMO, it's not bad.
@redoak You could paste images into a Word doc and email it to your friends.
Same, but I’ve settled on joining an instance, rather than hosting my own.
At this point I’m basically waiting for v1.0 with Android & iOS app support to completely drop instagram/fb usage for fam photos.
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
