Boomer in like Facebook/tiktok is their final technology frontier.
My friends/circle (ages 19 - 72): 95% don't know how to set up Adblock on desktop. 20% only use computers once a week. 5% use shortcuts like copy and paste. 30% of them buy iphones bc they find android too hard too bother with (I agree with this). 1% struggle with basic concepts like knowing if they are posting a status or DMing someone. Tho 10% trade stocks by themselves, so with sufficient motivation they could learn.
I have onboard 1 person irl and I had to walk them through it.
I rate the fediverse as 0/10 for assessibility to boomers but have not tried the whole fediverse

> Good article that criticizes Pew Research Center's new report of reducing "alternative social media" just to sites like Parler, Gab, Truth Social and so on. It makes a good explanation of the Fediverse (referred as "citizens’ social media") and sees it as an antidote to the propaganda and misinformation promoted on those platforms.
> > More nuance is needed here: the Pew report focuses solely on what mass media scholar Kristoffer Holt calls “right-wing alternative media.” And in doing so, it misses a more democratic form of alternative media, what communication scholar Clemencia Rodríguez refers to as “citizens’ social media.”
> > And for all of us tired of both big tech and online trolling, citizens’ social media is our way forward.

> I went to a bar last week and saw this total fediette. I immediately fedied a little in my pants and decided to put my fedi where my mouth is. I went up and sat my fediussy on the stool next to her, and asked her if I knew her. Nah, you're too pretty. I'd remember your face. Misskey to remember, funkwhake to forget. She was instantly feding out her panties at the mere thought of feding out with me. Then some anti-fedier jerkop came up and said "Are you fucking quoting the fediverse (2022) to pick up girls?" I fedipanicked. I said "I...ill follow you on diaspora?" and he started #fediblocking me. I fedied the hell out and fedied all over that guy and am now in federated prison for "fediMurder". Don't those fedidetectives know it was a fediverse reference? All in all, follow me on pixelfed?
What such systems are recommended? Since most social media stuff doesn't support events, and I think it *is* a decent use-case.
I've heard about Mobilizon. How does that work in practice? Does it work with mastodon accounts? Misskey?
