The WrapFacebook Will Remove Content Organizing Protests Against Stay-at-Home Orders, Zuckerberg Says by Sean Burch

Consider Diaspora*, Flote, Friendica, Gab, Liberty.Me, MeWe, Minds, Pocketnet, or Spreely as possible alternatives to Facebook and Twitter.

Diaspora* doesn’t have pages or groups, and it helps if you can read German, French and Spanish, but there is some interesting stuff there.

Friendica is similar to Diaspora, along with the posts in Russian and Japanese.

Gab is a less-censored version of Twitter.

MeWe lets you create groups at no charge, but charges you per month for pages. Also, they don’t let you share links for anything there (including your own stuff) outside of MeWe.

On top of this, Facebook won’t let you post links to any content on Minds, hence the above URL.

Spreely offers the same sort of stuff as Facebook (pages, groups, video channels), but doesn’t seem to do the same sort of arbitrary lefty-biased shadow-banning that we’ve seen on Facebook.

Thus, I’m slowly duplicating my Facebook pages and groups on Spreely, in advance of a mass migration.

Also, while Facebook will allow you to post links to Spreely, the FB system labels it as “403 Forbidden.”

YouMe seems to be a new outfit. Like MeWe, they don’t seem to let you share links of what you post outside their system.
