We are trying to make a large community of “Gilets Jaunes” (“Yellow Vest” social movement, France) migrate from a massive use of Facebook to Free as in Freedom, secure & privacy friendly software.
One of the main weakness’s of this movement is that it relies on Facebook & other proprietary softwares that allow easy police surveillance, and this is undermining the movement’s capabilities in various ways.The strategy is to setup different levels of filtering information, but mostly sharing information on secured channels.One has to understand that the communities act like small organisations, and could federate with other communities, that many user’s are not very comfortable with software, mostly use a mobile, and will certainly continue using FB.
The number of users could vary and peak from at least a 100 to more.The ideal solution would be self-hosting, not possible for the moment, but will is considered if the migration is a success.
What is best suited for a possible “large community” ?
An easy self hostings solutions such as : https://masto.host/
would be great.
Thanks in advance for your answers.
