      Pixelfed has the very good point to be decentralized and at the same time federated with the other Pixelfed instances and even all the ActivityPub-powered services such as Mastodon, Funkwhale, Plume, Peertube, Pleroma…

      marcrnt It is a privacy-focused version of Instagram. It's decentralised, so you can choose which provider you want or you can also host it on your own server, if that's your thing. It has a lot of the same features and it integrates into a bigger network of decentralised apps by using the ActivityPub protocol.
