@switchingsocial This is an awesome resource, thank you!

Should I take the lack of an Instagram alternative to mean that, as of now, there isn't any good ethical alternative?


Actually there is one just in testing, you can follow its progress at @pixelfed

The test PixelFed site opens for registrations daily: pixelfed.social

Once it's ready, it will be available for anyone to set up their own site, which will federate with each other and with Mastodon.

@switchingsocial @pixelfed Very cool, I was completely unaware! You're providing a valuable service, thank you!
