One of the unexpected joys of the fediverse over other places is the addition of weird domains appended on to everyone's usernames.
It makes the web feel like more than just four websites again.
It's both a signal of a smaller more intimate internet and also a larger and far more diverse internet at the same time!
just joined and looking to expand my horizons 👀 any artists here in the same boat? feel free to interact
i love nature and selectively some games, books, comics and animated works but they keep changing :)
here's some of my old stuff because i forgot how to draw in uni and i'm barely slowly getting back into it now:
Some Fediverse alternatives to "big tech" social media:
Twitter ➡️ @Mastodon
Instagram ➡️ @pixelfed
YouTube ➡️ @peertube
Twitch ➡️ @owncast
Goodreads ➡️ @bookwyrm
Facebook Groups ➡️ @mobilizon
Medium ➡️ @writefreely
You don't need an account on all of these in order to interact with them.
Because they all use the ActivityPub open protocol, you can (for example) use a Mastodon account to follow someone on PixelFed or vice versa. That's why they are collectively known as the Fediverse, because they federate together at a technical level.
