WordPress and Indieweb: Take control of your online presence 6:30 GridAKL Nov 30
Posted on 11-Nov-2017 13:43 by Bill Bennett | Tags Filed under: Articles


Indieweb – why you should take more control of your online presence and how to use WordPress to do it.

What you post online should belong to you, not a corporation. That corporation can close shop or change its rules tomorrow: you may not be able to get at your own data.

Even if you can get at your data, you often have little control over who can see your posts and messages.

The IndieWeb is all about you keeping control over your posts and data. Think of it as a declaration of independence. It means you get to choose who can see your material where and when. It is about building a presence that big business interests can’t take away.

It doesn’t mean you have to walk away from Facebook, Twitter or any other service. It does mean you are not trapped in someone else’s walled garden.

WordPress is an ideal tool for building an Indieweb presence. And the Indieweb is a great way to get more from a WordPress site.

At the November WordPress meet up I’ll talk about the ideas behind the Indieweb. Then I’ll look at the WordPress themes, plug-ins and other tools to help make it work. I’ll also talk about my experience using the Indieweb.
