We always want to stay on the edge of tech, that is why we have moved on from the old fashioned social medias to the new Network of networks the #fediverse.
Do you remeber the good old days of interest specific forums?
When I dabbled into the internet for the first time, I searched for a Forum to learn about that new hobby I picked up, I chatted, learned and made friends online. and then cam social media and we all flocked to it. More connected faster and more inclusive…but also more intrusive, and filled with garbage.
I don’t care for mom-vloggers whos posts are 99% adds for junk I don’t need. I don’t care for the seemingly perfect live of instagram-models. I care for thougth, inventions, tech and skills. I want to see content that is meaningfull and not driven by the need to please an algorithm.
I want to produce content for people with similar interests, not a hoard of brainless numbers on a sub-counter. The truth in business is that it does not matter how many people see your stuff but how many can use it and convert into a customer. and the same goes for any media. High numbers are worthless if they consist of dumb drones. A handfull of the right skilled followers can be more than enough to come out on top.
The point is that on conventional social media you are bombarded with uninteresting garbage, adds and propaganda.
the Fediverse takes controll away from the ones who run the services to those who make the content. Can’t find the thing you are looking for? Make it yourself, the framework is free and open source! build a videoplattform for your special interest! the one for tech guys like me is https://diode.zone!
want to make a texting community for a highly specific business? Found a mastodon Server!
Why should I run a Plattform that nobody finds?—You don’t! You build a node in a network!
When you start a community/service/plattform that adheres to the fediverse comunication standard you become part of the network! link up to other networks with a similar audience or general servers like https://mastodon.social and open your „federation tab“–Boom thousands of people with similar interests are in your reach!
the Future is decentralized shared and networked within networks.
follow us on mastodon or any other app.. it is your choice!
we post content as @mayermakes on the old dying social medias.
even a linkedin article is still relevant (for now)

and these are linked to all the other hundreds of places for your individual field of interest! welcome to the content future!
