Welcome Facebook friends,
This is for sure a social media platform and it's not like Facebook. It's a little like being a pioneer without the need to steal land from the original inhabitants. Facebook gives you a ready to use product but it comes with a cost. Facebook's purpose is to disguise their exploitative, commercial operation so they make it easy for you to do the things they want you to do without thinking about the cost. Real community takes more effort. ZAP gives you the tools to do that--but it is more effort to build a ZAP community.
Since ZAP is a federated social network platform, there are many instances, each with their own name. This instance is called Our Common Cloud
). If you join, you will gain access to this local ZAP platform and be able to communicate with other federated platforms worldwide.
set up and runs this instance and he is eager to help newcomers learn the basics of participation. He is thinking of setting up a group for that purpose. If you are interested in registering click on the link above. It will take you to a login page but you will want to click on the word "Register" below the login form. Since registration is by approval only, filling out and submitting the form will notify the administrator (i.e., @Barry Solow
) of your request and you will be sent email when your membership is approved. BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR SPAM FOLDER -- some systems seem to treat email from this site as spam.
I hope to meet you on this new venture!
