    I just got recommended this site after posting on reddit re: predatory algos and the necessary regulations needed to protect people and how algos have manipulated the UX so much its disrupted the originally intended purposes; ie insta has effectively become a marketing and advertising platform.

    So in response someone suggested finding alternatives to the popular social media sites and used Lemmy as an example.

    I have been loving it thus far - its old school reddit.

    this is my first comment on lemmy!

      Welcome! So far, in my experience, this is a much friendlier community that… many of the alternatives.

        Usually. There’s definitely some who want to take their pound of flesh out of you when you disagree with them on something, but overall not so bad.

          I disagree strongly with that opinion but respect you as a lemming

            Fair enough. My perspective in the last day or two tells me otherwise, but I’m glad you’re having a great experience.

              There’re always going to be hotheads and bad faith actors in any platform, but I have noticed it is much more rare here on Lemmy. Much less vitriol as well.
