There have been many reports lately that Facebook is blocking links to https://joinmastodon.org
If you are still on Facebook, please keep spreading the word about Mastodon and the Fediverse.
If https://joinmastodon.org doesn't work, try posting a link to a reliable instance people can join. There are so many instances, Facebook cannot block all of them from being mentioned.
That Facebook are even doing this implies the Fediverse is on their radar, which is quite an achievement in itself!
@feditips If they are blocking without good reason then this is surely also anti competitive practice,
Much of what Facebook does is illegal as well as immoral.
Unfortunately, most authorities seem reluctant to prosecute, or else they give such tiny fines that FB can pay them without problems 😔
This is what happens when a single organisation becomes too powerful, no one dares go after it.
Maybe a request if this does get blocked, then perhaps users can take a screenshot ASAP and post here, ideally with time / dates. If nothing else it acts as evidenc.
Given zukerberg has denined putting profits before wellbeig of users (despite internal documents saying otherwise) he has no problems LYING,
Perhaps when he is summoned before a federal , senate board of inquiry his lying may actually turn in to a charge of perjury, and result in what ever sanction the US has for that.
@feditips you would be surprised who and what is on their radar and what projects and people they tried to buy out and/or otherwise disrupt.
@feditips I love how decentralisation can break through Facebook censorship. I think so many people miss the value of such a simple design that's integral to Mastodon.
@feditips I don't login to Facebook for around half a year now and maybe next time I would just login for a community I maintain for my blog (which I'm going to switch to some fediverse alternative if odds are in my side) or to check if any emergency message arrives. I don't miss it at all. It seems Mastodon is enough for my needs. The feature it provides and the freedom I get is just extraordinary.
