@n0btc Bulletin Board Systems.
@n0btc discord lol
Xmpp is just too fragmented for me.
For groups matrix seems to be actually built for them.
Private messaging I wouldnt go less than p2p like tox or Jami or briar.
Now if only we could have the groups in p2p too 🤔
IRC, only to save the remaining communities from fragmenting
Depends on the crowd.
Telegram or Signal for less technical people
IRC for more technical people who like old school chatrooms.
Basically this is my order of preference :
Telegram (hybrid foss/proprietary I know)
I doesn't have much features, but the features it has are rock solid.
@n0btc xmpp! Its an open standard anyone can contribute to.
@n0btc I tend to just use Telegram, it's not ideal but it's easy to get to grips with and it's vastly more widely used than Matrix or XMPP while still being FOSS
