Good places: entry of schools, high schools and universities; entry of big buildings and bus stops.

Your second link is a false link to a post https://lemmy.ml/post/imprime.nogafam.es when I think you tried to put https://imprime.nogafam.es

Whoops, thank you. Maybe Lemmy should return an error when trying to put an absolute link?

Follow https://mstdn.social/@feditips could help for newcomers.

I think that as I said in some other coment I want to spread not only the fediverse, but also FOSS and privacy. Ideas about how to do it and what to say or smth like that?

Someone was talking a little while ago about starting a fedivangelism community. I think that’s a good idea.

I mean OP is literally suggesting leaving out books for people to find them. It’s pretty identical to christian tactics.

Thats a bit to sneaky for my taste :D

Very nice list of ideas, made me smile. Appreciated. I think I saw people selling Mastodon stickers some time ago.

I have cross-posted this to !fediversefutures@lemmy.ml and addressed more of the technologists perspective there. This aligns with plans I have for a Fedi Foundation website I’m creating (still in draft). See also announcement on SocialHub.

Here’s my idea: https://polarhive.ml/blog/fedi-first/ #FediFirst is a cool hashtag you can adopt, especially if you have accounts on other centralized platfroms.

I see many people having cross posting bots stuff. Usually they treat centralized platforms as the priority and forget about their old fediverse accounts. To solve this quite simply reverse the platforms. Treat fediverse as your primary platform.

The only reason to be on YouTube or some proprietary service is to get everyone to join the fediverse and discover alt-platforms through your account. It siphons the user previously trapped in proprietary, shadow banning, legacy platform into the fediverse. Make sure to leave links in your bio or change your channel-photo/banner which suggests the same.

So for example that means posting your PeerTube videos to YouTube a week or 2 later or unfollowing everyone, archiving your account. Deleting old posts and such.

I try to do this everywhere, like opting for Matrix over Discord, Codeberg over Github, etc and not drive traffic to centralized platforms. Oh, and also redirect.invidious.io and nitter.net are cool!


Any ideas, suggestions? or do you know where else I should cross post this?

Nice suggestions, and a great hashtag indeed!
