Gobo is an experiment, not a startup. We’re building it to change the conversation on social media and imagine a better version of it. This is a technology-to-think-with—a tool we want you to play with and push against. Gobo is being built by a small team at MIT Media Lab's Center for Civic Media, where we work on technologies for social change.


Decentralized open-source social network


Mastodon is by far the most popular ethical social network with millions of users. You can watch their official video above, which explains how the site works. It’s a bit like Twitter, but with a much longer character limit and more flexible interface.

Behind the scenes, Mastodon is a bit different to most social networks: instead of being one big site, it’s a network of thousands of smaller independent sites (called “instances”) that are all linked together. Whichever site you sign up on, you can make friends with anyone on any other site because all the sites are connected.

The process of linking together lots of small sites into a network is called “federation”. Federation may sound unfamiliar, but it’s actually a process all of us use all the time, even if we don’t realise it.

Even better, your Mastodon account lets you follow people on other alternative social networks like Friendica (see below), Instagram alternative PixelFed, YouTube alternative PeerTube and many others. This alliance of alternative social networks is called “the Fediverse”.

You can try Mastodon by signing up at one of the sites below, and you can use your account on one of the Mastodon phone apps. We’ve also done some hints and tips for new users.


Güncelleme: Friendica (formerly Friendika, originally Mistpark) is a free and open-source software[4] distributed social network. It forms one part of the Fediverse, an interconnected and decentralized network of independently operated servers

Friendica is a Facebook-style social network with similar features including events and photo albums. Like Mastodon, Friendica is made up of many smaller sites linked together through federation. The smaller sites that make up the Friendica network are called “nodes”.

Friendica is also connected to Mastodon, Diaspora, PixelFed, PeerTube and many other alternative social networks, so you can make friends with people on all those networks too.

If you decide to sign up, you can register at the sites below. You might also want read our hints and tips on how to get started.


PixelFed is a photo-oriented social network with filters, comments, likes, shares. As an open source federated alternative to Instagram, it has no ads and no tracking. You can see an example of a PixelFed account here, and an example post here.

The network is made up of lots of independent sites that talk to each other, so you can sign up on any PixelFed site and follow people on the network’s other sites too. (It doesn’t matter if you join a big or small site, they’re all part of the same network.)

Also, because PixelFed sites connect together using the ActivityPub standard, you can follow millions of people on other ActivityPub sites like Mastodon, and they can follow you too.

Unlike Instagram, you don’t need an app to use PixelFed, it works through your browser on phones, computers and tablets. (There are also apps in development for people who prefer them.)

Minds is an alt-tech blockchain-based social network.[2][3] Users can earn money or cryptocurrency for using Minds, and tokens can be used to boost their posts or crowdfund other users.[4][5]

Minds has been described as more privacy-focused than mainstream social media networks.[6][7] Engadget and Vice have criticized Minds for its preponderance of far-right users and content.[5][3]

Today's social networks are broken. Ads are everywhere. Hate and harassment are too common. Fake news spreads unchecked.

Our community is built on a network of independent microblogs, with replies, conversations, and a timeline to follow friends, backed by strong community guidelines that are enforced. You can interact with others while your content is on your own blog that you control.
