IndieEeb – People-Focused Alternative to the “Corporate Web”

IndieEeb – People-Focused Alternative to the “Corporate Web”
https://indieweb.org/

When you post something on the web, it should belong to you, not a corporation. Too many companies have gone out of business and lost all of their users’ data. By joining the IndieWeb, your content stays yours and in your control. Your articles and status messages can go to all services, not just one, allowing you to engage with everyone. Even replies and likes on other services can come back to your site so they’re all in one place. You can post anything you want, in any format you want, with no one monitoring you. In addition, you share simple readable links such as example.com/ideas. These links are permanent and will always work. This will be added to World Wide Web Reference Subject Tracer™.

ManyVerse – Social Network Off the Grid
https://www.manyver.se/

Manyverse is a social network mobile app with features you would expect: posts, threads, likes, profiles, etc. But it’s not running in the cloud owned by a company, instead, your friends’ posts and all your social data live entirely in your phone. This way, even when you’re offline, you can scroll, read anything, and even write posts and like content! When your phone is back online, it syncs the latest updates directly with your friends’ phones, through a shared local Wi-Fi or on the internet. They are building this free and open source project as a community effort because they believe in non-commercial, neutral, and fair mobile communication for everyone.

https://joinmastodon.org/

Follow friends and discover new ones among more than 2M people. Publish anything you want: links, pictures, text, video. All on a platform that is community-owned and ad-free. Mastodon isn’t just a website, it is a federation—think Star Trek. Thousands of independent communities running Mastodon form a coherent network, where while every planet is different, being part of one is being part of the whole. Mastodon comes with effective anti-abuse tools to help protect yourself. Thanks to the network’s spread out and independent nature there are more moderators who you can approach for personal help, and servers with strict codes of conduct. You have 500 characters. You can adjust the thumbnails of your pictures with focal points. You can use custom emojis, hide things behind spoiler warnings and choose who sees a given post. Messed it up? You can delete & redraft for quick corrections. This will be added to Social Informatics Subject Tracer™. This will be added to World Wide Web Reference Subject Tracer™.

diaspora – Online Social World Where You Are In Control
https://diasporafoundation.org/

diaspora* is based on three key philosophies: 1) Decentralization – Instead of everyone’s data being held on huge central servers owned by a large organization, diaspora* exists on independently run servers (“pods”) all over the world. You choose which pod to register with, and you can then connect seamlessly with the diaspora* community worldwide.; 2) Freedom – You can be whoever you want to be in diaspora*. Unlike some networks, you don’t have to use your real identity. You can interact with people in whatever way you choose. The only limit is your imagination. diaspora* is also Free Software, giving you liberty over how you use it; and 3) Privacy – In diaspora* you own your data. You don’t sign over rights to a corporation or other interest who could use it. In addition, you choose who sees what you share, using Aspects. With diaspora*, your friends, your habits, and your content is your business … not theirs! This will be added to Social Informatics Subject Tracer™.

Digital Data & Society Consortium
https://digitaldatasociety.wordpress.com/

We are a group of researchers who take a social, cultural, political and ethical perspective on digital data, both ‘small’ or personal data and large or ‘big data’ sets. We bring together expertise across the social sciences, humanities and legal studies to engage in critical data studies. We are researching the following areas: a) How people make sense of the personal data that digital devices collect about them; b) How they incorporate these data into their everyday lives; c) What people know about the other actors and agencies who are using their data; d) The sensory and affective aspects of digital data; e) Locative devices, mobilities and data; f) Data literacies; g) The implications of big data for humanities and social science research and practice; h) How big data are influencing ideas about the social and society; i) The politics of big and small data; j) The sociomaterial dimensions of digital data collection, storage and use; k) Dataveillance, data privacy and security issues; l) The legal and ethical issues around personal and big data, including human rights; and m) Innovative methods for using and researching personal and big data.
