If you are the owner of a Synology NAS, then you can also be the administrator of your own online community, without the need to rely on third parties. How good does that sound? You can create online communities right from your home or office, and manage them easily with a free DDNS offered by Synology or with your own domain name, if you have a static IP. Today I want to surprise you with some Docker applications that you can use to build your own online communities.
Mastodon is a free, open-source social network server based on ActivityPub where users can follow friends and discover new ones. On Mastodon, users can publish anything they want: links, pictures, text, video. All Mastodon servers are interoperable as a federated network (users on one server can seamlessly communicate with users from another one, including non-Mastodon software that implements ActivityPub like Pixelfed and WriteFreely). Note: Install Mastodon on Your Synology NAS.
Pixelfed is a free and open-source image sharing social network service. It is decentralized, therefore user data is not stored on a central server, unlike other platforms. The fediverse is a large network of platforms that all speak a common language. Imagine if you could reply to Instagram posts from Twitter, or interact with your favorite Medium blogs from Facebook – federated alternatives like Pixelfed, Mastodon and WriteFreely enable you to do these types of things. Note: Install Pixelfed on Your Synology NAS.
Lemmy is a selfhosted social link aggregation and discussion platform. It is completely free and open, and not controlled by any company. This means that there is no advertising, tracking, or secret algorithms. Content is organized into communities, so it is easy to subscribe to topics that you are interested in, and ignore others. Voting is used to bring the most interesting items to the top. There are strong moderation tools to keep out spam and trolls. A Lemmy website can operate alone. Just like a traditional website, people sign up on it, post messages, upload pictures and talk to each other. Unlike a traditional website, Lemmy instances can interoperate, letting their users communicate with each other. Note: Install Lemmy on Your Synology NAS.
Answer is an open-source knowledge-based community software. You can use it to quickly build your Q&A community for product technical support, customer support, user communication, and more. Note: Install Answer on Your Synology NAS.
Friendica is a free and open-source software distributed Social Network. It forms one part of the Fediverse, an interconnected and decentralized network of independently operated servers. Note: Install Friendica on Your Synology NAS.
