I've got a question about the Fediverse and our 13 year-old son 🤔
After watching 'The Social Dilemma' with him today, we had a chat about Instagram, Twitter, etc.
He asked what I use and I told him more about Mastodon and federated servers (he knows some of this due to me PM'ing @moodlenet)
My question is whether, based in the UK, there are any instances he can join? Mastodon.social, for instance, says users have to be 16 years old because of GDPR...
Thanks for the replies! Particularly interested in those suggesting we set up our own instance! 👍
@dajbelshaw self hosted is like building your own club house so to speak. With something like freedombone.net you could do it on cheap hardware tied to your home IP address. Or have multiple, for the sports team, the class etc.
That's a worst case scenario, though. The more interesting story would be the experiences and motivations of the team and the organizational principles involved...
INDIEWEB.SOCIAL is an instance focused on the #Openeb, #Indieweb, #Fediverse, #Mastodon #Selfsovereign #identity (#SSI), #Humanetech and #Calm technologies evolution.
