BAMF (Bay Area Members of the Fediverse) now has a dedicated team page on #GetTogether: gettogether.community/bamf-bay

It looks like GetTogether is working towards implementing ActivityPub, which could make it a great meetup app for the fediverse.

#BayArea #SanFrancisco #Oakland

This week some community members will be meeting up in Brussels, to share experiences, and get to know each other.

If you would like to join them please check out this link:

Hey world! I just supported Fosstodon on @Patreon. Help your instance with hosting costs by becoming a patron too. t.co/lYfLVoTqUx

Our admin, @mike had a great idea - to open up the Fosstodon Hub to our users, so they can contribute blog posts.

Maybe you want to talk about a project you're interested in, or something you're working on, or maybe just tell people why you use FOSS in a more long-form fashion.

Think of it kinda like a mini-medium for Fosstodon users.

This post is to gauge interest before we start developing something. Would anyone be interested in contributing to, or consuming, such content?

We've dropped the idea of "premium" teams. From now on all teams will have access to all features, free of cost!

If you want to help with the cost of hosting, become a patron: patreon.com/mhall119

Or find other ways to contribute: gettogether.community/about/co

We hate spam as much as you do, that's why GetTogether only sends you relevant messages. To date we average fewer than 1.5 messages per person, over the past 6 months!

Join us on gettogether.community for a spam-free, cost-free, free-as-in-speech way to host and promote your events.

I just became a monthly patron of @fosstodon

patreon.com/fosstodon/

If you like Mastodon and want to see it succeed and replace Twitter, you need to support your instance too.

By helping pay for the hosting and maintenance of your instance you will not only make sure it can keep running, but you also give the admins a reason to ensure that it's run and moderated to your liking.

If you're an instance admin, let people know how to support you.


@kev @switchingsocial

We've added a new Do Not Track feature for our privacy concerned users! This will prevent from using Google Analytics, as well as social media sharing code, from every page you visit on the site.

While this reduces functionality of the site, and it means we lose visibility on how those people are using it, privacy is an important feature for a lot of our community and we want to support their choice.

There's an amazing number of #ActivityPub #alternatives now available or under development:

Twitter -> @Mastodon and #Pleroma

Instagram -> @pixelfed and @anfora

YouTube -> #PeerTube ( @Chocobozzz )

Soundcloud -> @funkwhale

MeetUp -> @GetTogetherComm

Medium -> #Plume ( @BaptisteGelez )

Reddit -> @prismo and Anancus ( @tuxether )

LinkedIn -> @cloutstream

Google Calendar -> @calendar_social

Anything missing from the list? What else is needed?

#Federation #Fediverse

@kyzh yes and yes!

@cloutstream is working on LinkedIn type features and @GetTogetherComm on meetup/event type features. There is also @calendar_social thats working on here too which I would assume would have some overlap.

And if any #SocialCoop members want to use that group to organise meet-ups in your area, DM me your email address and I'll add you.

The open source real life meetup platform @GetTogetherComm has quite a few groups already:

gettogether.community/teams/al

If you want to just see groups near you, go to the instance's front page at:

gettogether.community/

You can also set up your own group. (Unlike meetup.com there are no charges on #GetTogether.)

At the moment groups are mainly about computing, but there's no restriction on the topics a group can cover.
