"Whether one takes a hit of heroin to ease their suffering or compulsively checks social media, so long as the reward circuits of the brain are stimulated, an addiction can form."
@adamchainz This is how it used to look that nightclub you danced in Vilnius. Some gif I made ages ago ;)
Looking forward for this one tomorrow https://www.vam.ac.uk/exhibitions/videogames
What I find not cool is the fact that most people think that using social networks is only their choice, without realising that they're helping create addiction and manipulation driven data. How many of your friends had to choose the network you're in and sell their data because they simply care how you're doing?

Thanks everyone who joined :) we will grow little by little, but keep in mind you can follow anyone who belongs to mastodon. There is many mastodon websites, this is just one of them ;) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mastodon_(software)
Trying out different Android apps for Mastadon. "Mastalab" seems good: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=fr.gouv.etalab.mastodon

Step away from the walled gardens of Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, whose raison d'être is to sell your data to the highest bidder, harvest your attention with addictive dark patterns, and bury the content you wanted to find in an "algorithmic" feed packed with ads.
Return to the pure intentions of social networks with the nologo.social Mastodon instance, which will always remain decentralized on top of open protocols, community-owned, and ad-free.
Like with email, you can follow and communicate with users across other Mastodon instances, so the network is not under the control of any single centralised entity.
Not sure which Mastodon instance to sign up to? Don't worry - solid progress is being made on an account migration feature for Mastodon, allowing you to move your account and followers to a different instance.
Our name is a homage to Naomi Klein's 1999 book No Logo, which explores the dangers of corporatism.
