If you are able to support his good work, please give him a hand πŸ‘

We're also looking for guest bloggers! If you're interested definitely get in touch. We would also be open to "syndicating" ( previously published articles if you're already a writer in the privacy space.

If you want to use the Fediverse through a Facebook-style interface, you may want to try Friendica.

Some good instances to sign up at:

You can use Friendica through the @fedilab app.

It federates through ActivityPub with Mastodon etc and it also lets you follow RSS feeds as if they were users.

The developers are very active with regular new releases.
