- A proposal to grow and decentralise

Social media coordinator Snowflake Foxtrot presents a proposal on how to restructure and decentralise control of XR social media channels after the International Rebellion 2019.

The proposal in more detail, including how to structure and decentralise power in social media platforms: (

@adinfinitum this looks like a treditonal top down structure with hippy camouflage. Interested in what a horazontal structure would look like

"xr leader wants top down control" [discuss] 

You make some valid points, I too share some of your concerns & have already been finger pointed for being to "spikey' lol.
Maybe so but my has taught me to trust my instincts. & rather than reposting press-releases & bleating on the about how someone else ["our governments"] must declare this, that or the other... We actively and collectively manifest a change, in a free libre and open manner.

Founded on #4opens, motivated by the #PGA hallmarks and moderated by an ethical code of conduct. Its an unfettered space for Activists and groups to communicate via #openweb projects.

"We can't engage as communities, unless we have money. I can't even express how angry this makes me."
- an activist group using Facebook. People and organisations who feel this way are our initial targets.

We are launching two new Mastodon instances for activists and campaigners to aid communication of grassroot groups; putting social media back in our hands by providing a free, unfettered home for campaigners, NGO’s and activists to communicate among their peers and beyond.

This project is a way out of the restricted, algorithmic, for-profit mediation and commercialisation of communication we increasingly experience. If you do not pay to "boost" each post, a Facebook page will only reach 3-6% of members. This soon becomes an expensive drain on limited NGO and activist budgets.
Activists and campaigners alike are ready to shift their outreach away from the corporate social networks paid-per-view “walled gardens”.

Mastodon is the worlds largest free open source decentralised microblogging network; it’s thousands of unique, interconnected communities, filled with different people, interests, languages, and needs.
You’re free to join any community you like, or better yet, host your own, on your own terms. It remains possible for members of each to instance to interact with others.
There is no monopoly by a single commercial company, no ads, and no tracking.

We aim to help activism/campaigning groups to make this step now.

A note on Security and Privacy - these take a somewhat different shape within the #openweb. Have a read about our thoughts on the matter.

How are OMN projects run?
