The future of the internet lies in the decentralization of social networks and communication solutions. As with e-mail, where everyone either runs their own server or uses public services and can still communicate with users of other servers, with ActitvityPub, better known as Fediverse and with Matrix, there are now real FOSS solutions for decentralized social networks and messengers and to be master of your own data again. Decentralized FOSS software that should be used instead of the known data octopus:
