theguardian.com/technology/202

Dear #Fediverse, this is the opportunity we get once in a lifetime -- we can suggest a new name for Facebook!

Quick first ideas:
- Failbook
- The Antisocial Network
- Zuckity
- Tire-All Corporation
- Aperture Data Science

If you're fairly comfortable with doing technical stuff on your own server, and you want to set up your own Fediverse instances, try taking a look at @yunohost which can be downloaded from:

yunohost.org

YunoHost is a special version of Linux which makes installation of server apps and server administration much easier.

YunoHost currently includes support for installing these Fediverse platforms:

Friendica
Glitch-Soc
Mobilizon
PeerTube
PixelFed
WordPress
WriteFreely

There are also lots of non-Fediverse apps available, see yunohost.org/en/apps for a complete list.
