Very cool -- https://teddit.net is a new privacy-friendly Reddit frontend, similar to Invidious / YouTube, Bibliogram / Instagram, and Nitter / Twitter.
Source code: https://codeberg.org/teddit/teddit
- All requests go through the backend, client never talks to Reddit
- Lightweight (teddit frontpage: ~30 HTTP requests with ~270 KB of data downloaded vs. Reddit frontpage: ~190 requests with ~24 MB)
Have you ever wondered why a popular account on the Fediverse seems to have few followers, and maybe even no posts? It's probably because its information is out of date on your instance.
✅ Clicking on a user's profile picture opens its public profile page on its home instance, which carries the true number of followers, the complete set of posts etc.
Sometimes the differences can be quite striking, see the attached images for an example.
Lemmy is a free open source federated alternative to Reddit. You can follow their official account at:
You can try the flagship instance at https://lemmy.ml
They have now introduced federation between Lemmy instances, so people on one Lemmy instance can interact with people on others. (They are working on federating with the rest of the Fediverse later.)
Is there someone you follow who does good posts but you don't want to see their boosts?
✅ To hide someone's boosts go to their profile, click the "..." button and select "Hide boosts from". (To unmute their boosts, just do the same thing again.)
Their other posts will work just like before, only their boosts will be hidden.
How to upgrade?- create a backup
We are launching https://fedisearch.com , a website for doing full text search on fediverse content.
This could be very useful for small instances users that are missing full text searches, just about anyone else who is looking for a blazing fast fediverse search engine.
We have a well behaved indexer that honors users' preference on opting out status indexing.
Please give it a try and let us know what you think.
Are there certain words or phrases that you just don't want to see on Mastodon?
✅ You can hide posts, notifications, messages or profiles containing these words using Mastodon's filters. Go to Preferences > Filters > Add New Filter to customise what you are shown
You can choose what type of content gets filtered, whether the messages are permanently filtered, and whether the trigger word or phrase has to be an exact match.
Mastodon uses the same technical standards as many other alternative social networks, so people on one network can follow people on others. This "network of networks" is called the Fediverse
✅ You can follow people from other parts of the Fediverse just like you would follow any Mastodon account!

The most remote inhabited island on earth is Tristan da Cunha and from the few YouTube documentaries that I watched on it it's an almost comically British place (considering its location). I would loooooove to visit! Source: https://buff.ly/3nJ2Cl1
