If you are looking for a privacy-friendly alternative to Facebook Events, you might want to check out Mobilizon:
It's a free open source federated events platform, and is part of the Fediverse as it uses the ActivityPub protocol.
Because it's still new, it currently only federates between Mobilizon instances. You can't follow Mobilizon instances from Mastodon yet, however this is planned for the future.
Security theater is worse than nothing. Security theater gives people the false impression that their risks have been mitigated, when actually things are just as dangerous.

The Free Software Foundation is asking for suggestions for what its new priorities should be. You don't have to be a member, anyone can send a suggestion by email.
It would be great if we could get them to prioritise the Fediverse including Mastodon, PixelFed etc, you can find out more here:
They need suggestion emails by 8th January 2021.
I know FSF generates mixed feelings on here, but it would help get the Fediverse noticed if they promote it.
