Here are today's headlines:
Cases still trending down. R falls again. Deaths still high.
There were 1808 cases reported today. Friday tends to be the highest of the week, so the fact that it is up on yesterday is not a concern. It's significantly down on a week ago.
7-day average: 1735 - DOWN 97

How’s everyone’s Friday going?? Exciting as Holly’s ? Lol!

- I am once again befuddled by Friendica vs HubZilla.

I want to play with a Facebook-like Web service where I can allow users to post long and short things, pictures and videos, create groups and events, and follow Mastodon, accounts etc. Does anyone have any insight into the best of the two options wrt having those services but also bringing in federated content?

And why not have a vote while we are at it. Do you have a preference?

I'm my intermittent quest for a alternative I have fallen on the landing pages of

Anyone here use any of these? If so what do you think of them and how do they compare to FB?

Any alternatives I should look at?

✈️ I haven't travelled in a year, so here's a retrospective journal of some that I've documented over the past few years.

I hope you enjoy.


If you are looking for a privacy-friendly alternative to Facebook Events, you might want to check out Mobilizon:

It's a free open source federated events platform, and is part of the Fediverse as it uses the ActivityPub protocol.

Because it's still new, it currently only federates between Mobilizon instances. You can't follow Mobilizon instances from Mastodon yet, however this is planned for the future.
