Post News expected to be shutdown by end of May 2024. I wrote an article recommending people take a look at three alternative social media sites, one of them being Spoutible.

I've been encouraging people leaving Post to come over to Spoutible as well. 🐳 🙌🏽

This spout was removed because the account associated with it was suspended.

Whenever we have glitches, it means there is tinkering behind the scenes to make Spoutible better. Please be patient, this isn't the norm.

Many of us have been here since day one, and this weekend's issues re nothing! 😀

Thanks. Like many others leaving Post, I’m now searching for a new online community. Currently I’m exploring this site and Bluesky.

I found Bluesky to be a cesspool like Shitter. Took less than an hour to delete the app and get off that garbage truck.

I keep hearing about "federated" systems. What is that and what are the advantages and disadvantages?

The idea is of a federated system for social media is similar to email servers. You don't have to be be on the same server as others to interact with one another. If one server goes down or you don't like how it is being managed), you can move to a new server without losing follows/followers.

thanks for the info. I tried Mastadon but gave up on it. I ck BlueSky but don't interact much. I'm not fond of Threads. I think I may like this platform as a Post alternative.

Same here w Mastodon. I boycott fb products for the most part so no threads for me. And I’ve heard BlueSky is really not developing as well as hoped. I’ve been here a year, and it’s constantly growing and improving 👍🏽

Mastodon suffers from what ails most open source apps. Unless you are tech savvy, it’s difficult to use.
