Here's a list of our favorite decentralized free software platforms, where people are gathering to discuss all things postmarketOS. They are right in line with our principles.
- Matrix and IRC are for real time chats. Due to the high volume of messages in the postmarketOS channel, we split it up into topic-specific channels (general discussions, porting of new devices, mainlining, ...).
- Mastodon is a social network for micro-blogging, used to post and re-post short messages and pictures.
- Lemmy is a social network for threaded discussions on links and questions.
postmarketOS is also being discussed on proprietary platforms. We do not recommend these for several reasons:
- bullying users to install their proprietary app with annoying popups ("this site is much better in the app")
- these sites and apps are known to track their users
- no access to source code
- not decentralized, people can not host their own instance
- Tor is blocked (not great for people who depend on it)
