I want decentralized services to become mainstream, but it is understandable that people are hesitant. Signing up for new services takes some time and requires password management which many people doesn’t take as seriously as they should. Any pod could also be discontinued for various reasons.
We should advocate RSS because as long as we make the process of using the right reader easy, it is a very convenient way of staying updated on the newest peertube juggling videos, mobilizon hackathon events or pixelfed handstands photos.
We just need to find RSS readers that are cross platform and preserves the users digital rights. That way it is much easier to convince people to join in on the fediverse. This solution will also give more attention to RSS, which is decentralized and ethical as well.
