So... There seems to be a common misconception where people assume all of Mastodon has 180,000 users because mastodon.social says it's home to that number of users.
The real number is closer to 1,5 million. Those 180k are only mastodon.social users and there are like... 3,000 other servers?
I wonder what I should do. 🤔
I kinda miss the days of rampant piracy and data hoarding.
We're now living with centralised streaming services that may be a bit more convenient, but are also much more limited in their offering and are run by psychopathic control freaks (a.k.a. "companies") that want to know and influence everything you're doing .
P2P filesharing applications like KaZaA, DC++ and others were a mess, but they were personal, authentic and *fun*.
Recommended #AppOfTheDay is:
A platform to talk with others via text and/or video. Create rooms and even host your own server. Riot can connect to other apps, such as slack, to create a big connected community! Uses the matrix protocol. Best alternative to Discord & Slack.
Available on the App Store, Web, F-droid, Google Playstore, Linux, Windows, & Mac.
Block tracking by any means necessary.
