I've been considering trying friendica just because it looks like it connects to nearly everything. (not to facebook, but well, that's not their fault.)
@feonixrift I'm considering setting up something for my family and their friends, which isn't targeting them with all this bullshit.
I just received targeted ads based on something I SAID IN REAL LIFE, which I did not type ANYWHERE.....
And I'm so freaking upset, I knew they were doing it, but experiencing it... Puh
@maloki I here you. When it finally undeniably happens, it's a horrible moment of the reality sinking in. If you need tech help, feel free to ask. I'll be over here doing something similar...
@feonixrift May need to set up a "friend don't let friends use facebook" service, where we help with the logistics of hosting one of these?
Hmm.... Kinda like Mastohost, but for friendica?
@maloki I think we need a tech support network of humans who have set up self-hosting. Like an old fashioned who-you-can-call phone chain, so no-one gets overloaded but you don't have to go it alone.
