The extremely popular r/technology subreddit has actually gone offline as part of a 24-hour social networks strike.
Started by Wikipedia co-founder Larry Sanger, the strike contacts web users to boycott all social networks on July 4 and 5, however not prior to publishing the #SocialMediaStrike hashtag.
We are on strike versus social networks giants abusing our complimentary speech, personal privacy, and security.We need social networks to be decentralized and to manage our own data.My posts today and tomorrow are a demonstration.
I will publish about absolutely nothing else.Please join us. #SocialMediaStrike
