Logo social.coop

social.coop is part of Mastodon, a free, open-source microblogging platform. A decentralized alternative to commercial platforms, this social network combats the risks of a company monopolizing your communication. Thanks to open standards and protocols, you can interact with everyone else on Mastodon or GNU Social (the "fediverse"), no matter what provider they signed up with.

social.coop is a coop-run corner of the fediverse, spearheading a cooperative and transparent approach to operating our social platforms
