Replied to Using WordPress to own your online data & social media presence w/Chris Aldrich (Meetup)
Sat, Aug 22, 2020, 11:00 AM:

Corporate social media has been dominating the online space so significantly that the newest generation of Internet users now thinks that is what the "web" actually is. Fortunately, with WordPress as your platform, you can not only take back your online identity and presence, but you can use it to have a richer and fuller experience than the locked-down experience you get with the limits of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.

Chris will explore some open web standards and technologies that open up WordPress to allow site-to-site interactions and easier posting functionality through the magic of a small handful of simple plugins. These are simple enough building blocks that the beginning WordPress user can do some powerful new things with their sites but are also rich enough that senior developers can build and extend them or find uses for them for business sites and even e-commerce.

Thanks to everyone who came out today for the Santa Clarita Valley WordPress Meetup! I’m attaching a link to my slide deck on WordPress + IndieWeb which includes links to all the plugins and resources we discussed. If you have questions, feel free to ask me directly or in the IndieWeb chat.
