Part of the series: Social Media

Looking at aspects of Social Media - platforms, histories, popularity, philosophies, etc.

Maybe you want to share some photos with your family and friends. You could use Instagram, but that is part of the Surveillance Capitalist media environment. Fortunately, there is a privacy-respecting federated alternative called PixelFed. This episode is an introduction to that platform.

Thanks for your shows about the Fediverse. I think I'm going to have to check it out.
