    • Lemmy is active, full of content and open to new users. It's also Open Source and federated (just like Mastodon, Pixelfed or PeerTube), censorship-free (it depends on the instance) and with an open community that will maintain a reasonable debate (also, good moderation in the main instance Guest • Jun 2020 • 2 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Lemmy is Reddit, but better. It's open source, and every instances can be independent OR federated, the moderation is one of the most POWERFUL out of all the federated software (the instance where the content is created can moderate and this will be moderated everywhere, and each instance that federate it can also moderate it for itself. There is just nothing comparable. Guest • 8 days ago Disagree   Agree
    • Decentralized alternative. Lemmy is faster than Reddit, and just as easy to use. headlinesJul 2020 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Explicitly made to be very similar to Reddit. It's a link aggragator that is split into communities, just like reddit. The main benefit is that Lemmy is federated across multiple servers, and the main downside is that it's still much less popular. Guest • Jun 2020 Disagree   Agree
    • Should be higher in the list. One of the only REAL alternatives to Reddit. Others are just other social networks or forums. It is open-source and has very similar features. jujujolyJun 2020 Disagree   Agree
