We are not in control of social networks, but we use them for most of our interactions online. They get to decide how our content is shown, may not provide us programmatic access to it, and try to run annoying adverts around it (if they bother to create a "business plan"), then shut down in a couple of years and your content is gone.
It can be difficult to decide to put content on websites we own because there isn't a ready made group of people to connect and share it with. By using standards from the IndieWeb we can connect our personal sites with others to get the benefits of a social network while owning our content.
In this talk, you'll see how we can authenticate ourselves, share posts, reply to and like content, and combine our personal sites with our existing social network profiles.
Join us with our first event of 2019 as we present a talk by Josh Hawxwell!
