Reto, All places you will put your email address, you will be"identified" with first and last name or not.
Exception ?!, encrypted based email, ex: proton.
You ISP provider give you an identified IP adress (exception VPN + browser well parameted, and be carefull with the OS used)
Anonymity and musician? :0))
Don't get me wrong: I care about privacy :0)
@SolarPhasing It's about freedom, not anonymity. I should be able to use any name I want. I really don't like these (social!) sites that force you to use the full name. What would #Prince say?
When I appear as a #musician my artist name is supposed to be "Reto", that's all...
When I want to be anonymous like you mean I use the #Tor #browser... 😄
Btw, are you affiliated with #Drooble?
More pertinent to my own situation:
"everyone on drooble listens to online radio"
-- I mostly don't? And much of my target audience also doesn't. I'm not sure that this network would be very useful for me, personally, in the niche in which I work.
Not trying to harsh on anyone's vibe, it does look interesting. But I have a pretty high bar to "useful" and a relatively unusual niche.
And how does their "Karma" system work if you don't find others of your niche there? I can answer some questions about sacred choral music, but guitar amps are beyond me. So already I would be less popular there just by chance. Their "get rewards for participating" system seems to replicate structures elsewhere, rather than foster true diversity.
I think this or something like it might still be useful to me, due to network effects, if I explore the slightly-folk route I've been thinking about.
But that's for after the PhD and I do not have the spare brain cycles to put into it now.
Also I think network effects are greatest when you join a community while it is smol and then let people find you as it grows.
@SolarPhasing you can't, it's just the profile url you can change to whatever you like (if it's not taken)
The main thing I like plugging in a new platform is discovering new music. Always people you haven't seen in previous other places. :0)
