Alternatives to Gab

Postby Weatherlawyer » Jun 21st, '19, 17:49

I have been using Gab for some time but keep finding the same racist posters evading the "Mute" Poster tab, sometimes immediately after another attempt to mute them. One refresh and they are back. Anyone know of an alternative where the mute button works.

I'm not using Gab, but according to some reviews the mute button seems to work. Maybe it's just some usability or browser issue on your end? You may want to explain in some more detail about that evading, although you should probably leave out personal data ;)

For some reviews, but also some alternatives you can check https://alternativeto.net/software/gab/

There quite a few loopholes with Gab and it is infested with racists, I half suspect the people in charge are in on it.
I was looking at GNU social

GNU social but I have no idea how to use a server and there doesn't seem to be an alternative

You can use GNU social today if...

In June 2013, we merged with the StatusNet project.

Visit GNU.io for the latest news on GNU social but don't expect a link to load it..

Regarding GNU social, it seems they don't offer a list of servers on the project page. Check https://gnu.io/social/

Where can I join GNU social?
There are many GNU social server instances. That’s another advantage of federation! Some are for people in different parts of the world, some are for people with different interests, some are open to everyone.

You can search the web for GNU social instances in your country or that are run by people with similar interests to you.

Please note that the GNU social project is not responsible for the operation or content of sites that run our software.


There seem to be a few instances listed at https://fediverse.party/en/gnusocial/
