    PixelFed is a decentralized photo sharing network based on the ActivityPub protocol, the same one that Mastodon uses. For a lot of people divorced (or wanting to be) from Instagram over mental health concerns and issues like forced consent to post-GDPR terms, a decentralized social network like PixelFed sounds like an exciting and promising alternative.

    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.

    While Instagram is very much about influencer culture and promotion (and maximizing ad revenue), Flickr is still all about the photos. The ability to organize them into multiple galleries is a huge plus too.
