Kbin is a modular, decentralized content aggregator and microblogging platform running on the Fediverse network. The initiative aims to promote a free and open internet.

What does Kbin feel like?

The platform is divided into thematic categories called magazines. By default, any user can create their own magazine and automatically become its owner. Then they receive a number of administrative tools that will help them personalize and moderate the magazine, including appointing moderators from among other users.

What is the difference compared to other similar platforms?

Content from the Fediverse is also cataloged based on groups or tags. A registered user can follow magazines, other users or domains and create his own personalized homepage. There is also the option to block unwanted topics.

Content can be posted on the main page - external links and more relevant articles or on microblog section - aggregating short posts. All content can be additionally categorized and labeled. Great possibilities to search for interesting topics and people easily is something that distinguishes Kbin.

Platform is equally suitable for a small personal instance for friends and family, a school or university community, company platform or a general instance with thousands of active users.

Kbin is modular and can be easily extended with new features. In the second half of 2023, it will also aggregate events and integrate better with Mobilizon.
