Hey friendos! Want to quit Facebook as well? I run a hubzilla instance and you're very welcome to have a look around.
https://hq.teamrocket.space is open to all left leaning folks of all identities. I'm email@example.com there, feel free to ask any questions, I know initially it can be a bit much of an interface and not enough content, but I'm hoping enough of you good people will come join up for writing longer shitposts and photo sharing perhaps???
I'm in my 30's and a communist, with a lean towards Full Automation and Intersectionality.
I did a test a long time ago that called my social media style "curator" and I think that's accurate. I won't often post my own thoughts, choosing instead to boost the words of others. Boosts are definitely endorsements.
I'm cis, white, male, a uni drop-out, and a software developer both by trade and hobby. I also play a lot of video games in my spare time.
