On leftist propaganda and organizing via social networks 

Someone made a pretty compelling argument about and regarding leftist outreach/propaganda and organizing.
Basically, outreach and propaganda make most sense on the corporate platforms (which are enemy territory) because that's where everyone is and can be reached. Doing that on Masto makes little sense - but organizing here makes perfect sense, since it's (relatively) safe.
So how do we organize here?

I'm also wondering how to suggest people not yet on Masto use it for organizing.
The obvious option is to set up your own server - which is zero effort and pretty cheap using masto.host, for example, but some people don't have money to put into it or might be worried about the responsibility (and rightly so.)

So what? Find a friendly server and organize there? How?
Is Masto actually good for organizing??

:boost_ok: & ideas welcome

I mean, the fact Masto doesn't offer a way to create any space smaller than a server for selective access only seems like a pretty big problem for organizing. Even if you set up an instance for your org you'll want like workgroups and stuff at times, which I guess you can only do through group DMs, which seems clunky to me but I dunno.

I think a Facebook-like site probably would be better for organizing than Twitter-like one. Facebook groups are very powerful in that respect, and Facebook events might also be useful.
Also, Masto is not built for security, which is a major problem.

@Nahshony @abgd have you heard about @mobilizon ? It might still need a few months to be polished enough to be used by most, but the fact that it is designed for advertising events / community organising, and that it uses ActivityPub and will therefore communicate with Mastodon and the rest of the Fediverse, makes it a very compelling option to me.

If there is some way to encrypt that, then it would be ideal. I don't know about the limitations of this protocol, however.

@jospanner @stragu @Nahshony @abgd @mobilizon there's always awkward encryption, we used to post pgp'd qr codes on gnu social
