Social.Coop: A New Year’s Resolution for You

If you are looking to connect with the co-op world on-line there are a number of resources. However, a unique one is social.coop. This is a cooperative owned and managed social network site through Open Collective. There is no cost to join or participate; however, if you want to be a voting member, that level of participation starts at $1 per month. Participation includes being involved in decision-making using Loomio and there are also workgroups helping to manage the site. You aren’t obligated to participate, but everyone is welcome.

You might see some familiar names and people. Some folks cross post on other formats as well (I tend to post a link to my page).

It doesn’t have the flashiness or functionality of reddit or facebook. The interface reminds me a bit of tweetdeck, but it is our place in the internet within the Mastadon world.

Come join us in 2020!
