Alternatives to Framasoft

This page is a summary of our article announcing our service closure schedule

Why are we closing down some services ?

  • We refuse to become the « default » solution and to monopolize your uses and attention (that’s how we empowered GAFAM & Co)
  • 38 services, it’s way too complex for you to adopt and for us to host
  • We wish to stay an organization of a human scale, and retain our human warmth… a sort of digital CSA ;
  • We propose to take the next step towards data decentralization :
    • By gradually closing-down some frama-services so their landing-pages can become gateways to other hosters
    • By taking the time to offer a new simpler range of services for users (through a single sign-on account for example)

So, what happens next ?
