olha means Bubble. Our community was born when Telegram got blocked in Brazil at the beginning of 2022. Initially, we created a way to access the Telegram IT channels using Matrix and Discord. At the time, everything was interconnected using the MatterBridge tool.
Even after Telegram got unblocked, some people continued to use Matrix and Discord to interact with some IT channels on Telegram. With this, the use of the Bolha became a matter of choice. We decided to leave everything connected so that each person uses what they want to use :)
In May 2022, we created Mastodon para Bolha, and we did this because Twitter could suffer a takeover to be done by someone who could make the network unsafe for our community. Thus, since microblogging is something that we like, we decided to jump into the Fediverse to experience open and decentralized social networks.
We entered the Fediverso because of the takeover done on Twitter by its new owner.
The takeover was the trigger; however, deepening our knowledge in this new universe was magical.
The philosophy, the tools, the ideas, the ideals, the goals, and its culture fit us. We stayed, occupied our space, and we are in constant expansion and movement.
Bolha is a great laboratory, we want to prove that it is possible to live without the BigTech's social networks. We want to show that we have a safe, moderate, modern social experience with content, quality, and respect.
This is a network of real people. We want to be an inclusive space, organic, and safe for all progressive communities and persons.
We are offering tools that help our community flow freely. We have video, chat, microblog, photos, forums, and more.
Bolha was born to prove that the use of decentralized social networks is possible, and that is enough for us!
