@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?

@trappleton

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!
