If you know of a great #privacy focused Mastodon profile, please add one comment here with the handle and why they would be a good account for us all to follow.

Maybe we can help boost the viewership of some like-minded accounts by following and engaging en masse.

Some of our members are developing a #socialmedia app called ReelFriends that aims to connect people in real life, to have quality interactions offline. They aim on bringing together your close circle of friends and family, opposite to the faceless crowd of 'friends' one has on #facebook #instagram and such.

They are in very early stage and looking for #feedback

Also take a look at fediverse.party .. it shows the lay of the land.

On the repository where it is developed you'll find a big watchlist of #fediverse seeds sprouting:
