In the misty valley where crimson sunrise succeeds maroon sunset, among noble mountains and grovy hills are located the lands of GNU Social, founding fathers of free libre microblogging networks. Daring travellers and adventures have trodden these paths in search of a better free social platform. The network has a significant userbase and is abundant in plugins. Join GNU Social today!

  1. Donate to the administrator of your server (if you have the means to do that).
  2. Set up your own instance, to make federation stronger and healthier, with many small servers.
  3. Spread the word. Invite your friends. Explain why it's important.
  4. Contribute with code. Send a pull request. Resolve an issue. Take a bounty.
  5. Help translating. Design promo materials. Print and distribute stickers.

Thank you. See you in GNU Social.
