Join the Fediverse and help build the weird new Internet.

👋 Welcome to the Epsilon galaxy, a friendly outpost of services in the brave new decentralized digital universe, now known as the Fediverse.


...and more federated service nodes coming soon!

Explore the open and private web.

The Fediverse is a decentralized network of servers that runs a variety of different social media platforms, such as Mastodon, PeerTube, WriteFreely, Pixelfed, Matrix, FunkWhale and more. By joining the Fediverse, you can connect with a diverse community of people from all over the world and participate in a wide range of conversations and discussions. Whether you're interested in technology, politics, art, or just want to socialize and make new friends, the Fediverse has something for everyone. So why not join today and start exploring all that this unique and vibrant community has to offer?

The Fediverse is both open and private because it combines elements of both the open web and the private web. On one hand, the Fediverse is open in the sense that anyone can join and participate in the community without needing any special permissions or credentials. The servers and the source code of the software that runs on them are also open source, meaning anyone can access, modify, and distribute them freely. On the other hand, the Fediverse also allows for private communication and content sharing, as users can create and join private groups, or communicate directly with one another through direct messaging. This combination of open and private features allows users to have a balance of both public and private communication, giving them the flexibility to share what they want with the audience they want.

Socialize ad-free on Mastodon.

Mastodon is a free, open-source, decentralized social media platform that is based on the Fediverse. It allows users to create their own "instances" or communities, where they can post updates, share links, and interact with other users. Mastodon is similar to Twitter, in that users can follow one another, post short updates (called "toots"), and interact with others through mentions and hashtags. However, because Mastodon is based on the Fediverse, users can also interact with users on other instances and servers, creating a much larger and more diverse community. Mastodon also has a built-in content warning system, which allows users to hide sensitive content behind a warning, and also offers a robust privacy setting, which allows users to control who can see and interact with their content.

Watch original videos on PeerTube.

PeerTube is a free, open-source, decentralized video-sharing platform that is based on the Fediverse. It allows users to host and watch videos on their own servers, without the need for a centralized authority. PeerTube is similar to YouTube, in that it allows users to upload, share, and view videos, but it uses a peer-to-peer network to distribute the content, rather than relying on a central server. This helps to reduce the strain on any single server, and also allows for greater privacy and control over the content. PeerTube also offers features such as video streaming and transcoding, video captioning, and support for multiple languages. Additionally, the platform allows for different level of content restriction, and has an integrated comment system, giving users the ability to interact with the content and creators.

Listen to music on Funkwhale.

Funkwhale is a free, open-source, decentralized music streaming platform that is based on the Fediverse. It allows users to host and listen to music on their own servers, without the need for a centralized authority. Funkwhale is similar to Spotify, in that it allows users to upload, share, and stream music, but it uses a peer-to-peer network to distribute the content, rather than relying on a central server. This helps to reduce the strain on any single server, and also allows for greater privacy and control over the music. Funkwhale also offers features such as album and artist metadata, playlist creation and sharing, and support for multiple languages. Additionally, the platform allows for different level of content restriction, and has an integrated comment system, giving users the ability to interact with the music and the community.

Post your best photos on Pixelfed.

Pixelfed is a free, open-source, decentralized, and federated alternative to commercial photo-sharing platforms, similar in functionality to Instagram. It prioritizes user privacy and data ownership, enabling users to retain control over their content. Built on the ActivityPub protocol, Pixelfed forms part of the broader Fediverse, allowing interaction across different servers. Unlike many commercial platforms, Pixelfed does not engage in user tracking or use personal data for targeted advertising, making it an appealing choice for those who value online privacy.

What is ActivityPub?

ActivityPub is a decentralized social networking protocol based on the ActivityStreams 2.0 data format. It enables users to create, share, and interact with content, and allows for federation, meaning that users on one server can interact with users on another server. The protocol is designed to be open, decentralized, and easy to implement, and is intended to work with a wide variety of different software and platforms. It is also designed to be extensible, so that it can be adapted to different use cases and communities.
