This is really exciting! I think this is what’s going to get people to switch away from GitHub.
Matrix is working on building a metaverse on Matrix and their company (Element) was hiring. https://mastodon.matrix.org/@matrix/107181805230567528
While I agree with this, many other messengers have payments and not having them could prevent people from switching. I would rather use Signal’s MobileCoin than whatever Facebook comes up with, mobile payments are HUGE in Asia and is probably coming to the US too.
Revolt currently does not have encryption but there’s an open issue https://github.com/revoltchat/revolt/issues/207
Some chat apps like Element are working on chat with threads so it’s like a forum in a chat. There’s a proof-of-concept on develop.element.io https://github.com/vector-im/element-web/issues/2349
Element uses the Matrix protocol which is decentralized with federation (like Lemmy!). Revolt is a centralized service but it looks and functions more like Discord, and last time i checked they didn’t have native apps so iOS users can’t get notifications for messages.
Matrix is still a great project and is one of the only good and privacy-respecting Discord alternatives right now. Services like Discord don’t have any end-to-end encryption so it’s still a good alternative. And there is work being done to encrypt metadata. https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-doc/pull/3414
GitHub has the Discussions tab, maybe Gitea and Sourcehut could do the same thing. GitLab probably already has it, that thing is so bloated.

TikTok is rotting kids brains and making people dumber with stupid and dangerous challenges like “devious licks”. And the algorithm keeps them addicted with a endless stream of garbage content.
The Chinese government has forced them to restrict how long the app can be used by kids and showing educational content. Other governments need to start doing the same thing.
If you need DDoS protection and you aren’t doing much egress bandwidth then all the major cloud providers (AWS, Google Cloud, Azure) are good and might save you money.
Signal is easy to use and very secure. https://signal.org/
The content on the categories is from channels that are hard coded in the frontend, you probably have to contact them or something.
They have had tracking for a while. They even use the same ad system as p*hub (Traffic Junky), you can see this in uBlock Origin. There’s a frontend for it like Invidious https://codeberg.org/librarian/librarian
