MetaAlternatives

Instead of Reddit I use MetaFilter. Instead of Twitter I use Mastodon. I'm interested in what your other alternative platforms are? I'm also interested in platforms like MetaFilter that are designed/maintained by people that are trustworthy. These choices matter because I'm trying my best to be a part of a more ethical/social platform and still stay connected with a digital community. What are your recommendations?

Cleanup requested in Social Apps aisle

The Social Apps section of our profiles is getting badly dated. There are over 120 sites listed, but some of them are dead (AIM, Gawker), some are ambiguous (is Glitch referring to the old shared universe site or the new programming site?), and the absence of Mastodon is becoming an obstacle: We have to advertise our usernames on active threads because we can't put them in our profiles.

What's your online genealogy?

I stumbled upon this tweet recently:
“what's your online genealogy. mine is: digimon forums moderator -> rpg maker - > somethingawful -> lf -> twitter” ~ @immolations
It got me thinking about the various online communities I've been a part of in my digital life, the different digital phases I've posted, shared, & tweeted my way through. Where does MetaFilter fall into your own digital history? What is your online genealogy?

Metafilter is not as inclusive as we like to think we are

So we get a front page post about Nice, we have check-ins for Belgium, but no-one here seems to care about Istanbul or other non 'Western' countries. [more inside]

tilde.club

Hi MeFites: I thought the original tilde.club (previously on MeFi) was a really neat idea. Now that there is a larger proliferation of other tilde groups inspired by the original, with many accepting membership applications, I was wondering if any of you fine people are active users (or admins!).

New profile "also on" updates: Strava, Steepster, Newsblur, [more]

MeFi cyclists/runners: your Strava account, if you have one, is now linkable in the "Also On:" section of your profile. In this same update it looks like pb has also added: Steepster, Newsblur, Hacker News, ResearcherID, ResearchGate, and eBay (any others, pb?). Related link: MeFi Social Explorer (for finding other users with profiles on growing list of linkable communities). [more inside]
