I hope people similarly leave Facebook and Instagram and join open-source alternatives. All corporate-owned social media platforms need to die.

@h_tejas
Look at riot.im as a replacement to #WhatsApp. It is decentralized similar to #Mastodon but suited for private conversations and groups with end to end encryption for assured #privacy It is powered by #Matrix protocol and two instances are manged by Indians diasp.in and poddery.com

@praveen @h_tejas @akshay thanks for pinging! Is the server ready to take the load though in case people notice this?

@akash @praveen @h_tejas @akshay honestly probably not if everyone signs up to matrix.org. It's very slow currently even. There are some alternatives like chat.weho.st which are better though

@restioson
I'm admin at poddery.com and I use it everyday. It is pretty fast.

@akash @h_tejas @akshay

@praveen @restioson @h_tejas @akshay can anyone please create on that server? I'll need to make an account there unless we want it to occupy multiple addresses

@praveen @restioson @h_tejas @akshay yogi lives like 20 mins from here, I'm scared of starting a room or being an admin tbh. Too many horror stories of WhatsApp group admins who weren't even admins anymore. This is UP

@akash

Created #BoycottWhatsApp:poddery.com (with limited scope than #india). Let new people join, understand how to use and move to whatever groups they like to create.

@restioson @h_tejas @akshay

@praveen @restioson @h_tejas @akshay im trying to join the room so I can take a as to post with the toot but it says it doesn't exist?

@restioson

And I heard matrix.org upgraded their servers recently and even voice calls are smooth as reported by @akhilvarkey

@akash @h_tejas @akshay

@praveen @restioson @akash @h_tejas @akshay
They are upgrading not at one go. But they say their upgraded infra has 10 times the capacity to the current one.

mastodon.matrix.org/@matrix/10

@praveen @akhilvarkey @akash @h_tejas @akshay I use matrix.org every day and it has always had lots of issues because it has too many users. Makes sense that smaller homeservers are faster. Hopefully the infrastructure upgrade helps!

@akash

I guess the exodus won't be as popular and if required we will have to upgrade.
