Just a little vent... Why is that so many left/socialist "things" (groups, media, podcasts etc) insist that the way to engage with them is "through our facebook group"? Not something here on the fediverse, not an RSS feed, not an email address... No, we need to engage through one of the worst examples of the capitalist world when all we want to do is to smash it. </vent>
@uxintro hard agree. And anything that doesn't share the ethos of facebook.
@koosli I understand why they might assume a need to be on facebook - it's got the biggest user base, after all. But to ONLY have it, that's what pisses me off.
@uxintro I'd not join something if it meant I had to be on it
@uxintro I've been saying this a lot on Facebook and the bird site.
Nobody seems to take any interest (in me). But if the left wing bloggers moved to the fediverse, I'm sure most of their readers will also.
@uxintro yes please
@uxintro virtue signaling is easy, actually making a change takes a modicum of effort and is inconvenient.
