As #Signal has had severe problems recently due to its centralised nature, here are some decentralised libre alternatives with Fediverse accounts:
➡️ @snikket_im - Initiative to give XMPP a consistent look and feel on instances and apps, to make it more attractive to new users
➡️ @xmpp - XMPP standards foundation
➡️ @delta - Decentralised messaging through email
➡️ @matrix - Best known for the Element client
➡️ @briar - Peer-to-peer encrypted messaging
➡️ @Jami - Peer-to-peer Skype alternative
There is an ActivityPub/Fediverse plugin for Drupal by @swentel
It could enable lots of older projects to become part of the fediverse if installed. I would love to see some local libraries use it.

Is there anyone in Canada who would be interested in helping to set up an instance of Mobilizon?
Mobilizon is for managing events. It’s free-libre, and federated.
My interest in this? I’d like to help the fediverse grow, and provide a useful service. I’d need help with some geeky things, like installation and whatnot.
