Worth mentioning in the communicating research findings session at that the big social media platforms aren't the only option for disseminating research findings online: worth looking at open source & federated alternatives eg WordPress, Mastodon too.

This isn't just a technical concern but a political one too - engaging only with large tech businesses means ceding control of our how our research findings are communicated to them, and makes us beholden to their priorities and interests

Assemblag.es

assemblag.es is a Mastodon instance for people interested in thinking creatively and critically about technology, in the broadest sense. The only requirement is that you keep to the code of conduct! Note: we've paused new signups for a few days while we deal with the #twittermigration influx - please do request an invite, but be aware that for now functions more like a 'waiting list' than a knock on the door, until our numbers stabilise again :-)
