Recently, there has been a huge wave of #FakeNews and harassment on the Fediverse targeting #Mastodon and its inventor as well as the #EU and some of their projects, for example @Eunomia. #Eunomia is an initiative coordinated by the Greenwich Uni and supported by the EU Commission that plans an opt-in app letting users of social media recognize fake news more easily.
When sharing stuff on social media, please verify the information by checking sources given or doing a quick internet search.
So, my question to the fediverse:
I run the standard #mastodon server and would love to have something more "light", since it stresses my server a lot.
I mainly post pictures and thought about #pixelfed . Does anyone has experience here if there's a difference (or if that might make things even worse)?
Every time I read about some service going down because of lack of time/money/whatever, I pad myself on the shoulder for hosting everything myself. Which I can recommend to everybody. It's easy. Hey, even I managed to do it.
Leute, ich weiß, es ist Sommer & gibt grad 1000 geilere Orte zum Abhängen als Wartezimmer oder Impfzentren. Aber wer deshalb das 2. Impf-Date platzen lassen will, sollte mal kurz an all die Leute denken, die grad für so ne Chance alles tun würden. Privilegien & so. Merci. 🙏
