Moving on From Instagram ➝

Chris Hannah:

I’ve been thinking for a while that there needs to be a new dominant photo-sharing service, but it’s definitely starting to feel like more people are thinking that way too.

Pixelfed is an open source photo sharing platform that you can self-host. And, like email, you can interact with people across different instances. I have my own instance that I run, but you can also sign up on a public instance. There’s a server list on and you can follow me
