Anyone know any US-based public librarians who are active on the fediverse? I don't just mean aware of it, I mean actively participating on at least one federated social media instance
@darius Come say hi to code4lib.social, glammr.us, and digipres.club !
@darius oh and how could I forget about ausglam.space? Anyway, all this to say, we out here
Good luck in your search!
Both my partner and sister have librarian degrees. My sister works as one at a community college, but I'd be surprised if she ever heard of the word fediverse. On the good side of that, she quit using Facebook awhile ago, so maybe there's hope.
Friend Camp features several modifications that were requested by our users.
If you want decent privacy (the info doesn't leave this server), the only way to do that is to set your account to private, only accept friend requests from other friend.camp users, and only ever @ mention other friend.camp users. Once you start talking to people on other servers, all bets are off. Any private message you send to someone on another server could be looked at by the admin of a different server. This is kind of like email: if you are on a private email server, and you send an unencrypted email to a gmail account, congrats, Google now has the content of that email. But also, you do this every day, so, hey. The internet!
