The Fediverse Is The Future

The various social media purges are ramping up. The IDDQD Press got its Christmas present from Discord when they shoah’d our server and banned the main account. So this publication, if you can even call it that instead of just some stupid blog, definitely has a vested interest in being on social media without being banned. However, we are also convinced that you, as regular citizens or perhaps someone intent on creating their own content, also want that privilege of free speech in practice, not just on paper.

To this end, we have created our own Pleroma instance, as well as a Matrix channel. We won’t be making regular use of unfederated services in the future. And that is because unfederated services do not have a future, at least not in the long run.

Federated services are the future of social media in the long run for two reasons:

  1. They’re straight up more robust against companies folding, having large-scale technical issues, etc, and more importantly,
  2. They are extremely resilient to corporate and government censorship
Nobody is really in control of a federated service

The latter is key these days. Corporate power is a greater threat to freedom of speech in practice than governments are. That’s just a fact. Since nobody wants to be shut up, when social media purges meet a critical mass, which they are quickly approaching. Your alternative, of course, is Internet slavery.

    fediverse is full of mentally ills, if normies jump the ship they would start banning everything and crying about nazis. Because they cry about nazis even when there's no any.

    All social media is an echochamber, disastrous cancer ruining your brain, ruining your personality, a dumpster stream of useless data. There is no future in social media.

      Implying those "Nazis" won't just start their own instances.

        Who knows. Let normies do what normies do.

        That's exactly what happens and has to happen.

        Even if it's not political, the people discussing and posting images of airplane engines also aren't really into biologists discussing and posting images of worm populations in animal feces. Same with anime meme posts. There will be separations there.

          Yeah, but he was implying it didn't happen, yet it already has. The SJW instances already create enclaves that refuse to federate with the "Nazi" ones like shitposter.club

            Sure, and Gab temporarily or permanently shut out some of the loliposters etc.

            And even stopped disclosing who they do ban – this one is the uncommon thing, BTW. So far, usually servers publish this.

    sane people will start going offline as regulation of content and the suppressing intensifies. Internet has no future, it's just a corporate echo chamber. Nothing will change that.

            I'd love to do that but I don't know how I'd get on without 4chan lol. It's my primary social interaction and I've been coming here for like 14 years now so it's hard to break it.

      sadly this is true. normal fags don't care because they have been conditioned to bend over and take it like the good boys they are. leftist don't care since they have free range to scream orange man bad AND they get to go around and like the christian right in the 90's with censoring who they please.

        Well, there's been a big hullalabaloo over social media censorship, and there was this brief period where people were looking for "alternatives." I think that the biggest hurdle is conveying to people how different the fediverse truly is in the background

    Decentralization is the future, but distributed and obfuscated platforms are slow and messy.

      I don't entirely disagree. But maybe the messiness can be reduced by having them send more complete updates to each other. Blockchains give the entire ledger to everybody; why not with the fediverse?

    No. Most people are not neo-nazis and will not be affected. Normal people will simply change their thoughts and beliefs to whatever happens to be socially acceptable at the moment. Dumb Lainposter. Lain needs the belt.

    I often report posts to facebook for vain reasons (it's a nigger, a sjw, muslim, scammer, etc…) Nas Facebook surprisingly remove posts that clearly have no business being removed. It's clear to me that Facebook only care about watever vocal people have to say, the silent majority is ignored.

    The fediverse is based but mostly contain people banned from other platforms so it's hard to find decent instances. I wish anons would use it more for events instead of discord thought, discord is absolute shit.
