Hi there! I’ve been wanting to do this for a while, but felt that with the new year, now would be a good time to provide a resource list for those in the Eugene-Springfield area interested in the fediverse, and looking for local posts. I’ll be updating this as needed.

Without further ado…


Public Signups

  • Emerald Social, my own public instance specifically for the Eugene-Springfield area. Feel free to sign up!
  • 💀 eug.social is now defunct, but had public signups while it was still around. It was created and run by the Eugene chapter of Code For America.

Private Instances (But Still Relevant to Eugene!)

  • wkly.ws, Mastodon instance for Eugene Weekly. Mainly used for the newspaper’s official account.

Accounts and Groups




Political Action

Other Nonprofits


  • I’m not aware of any businesses, but if you know of any Eugene or Springfield-local businesses that are on the fediverse, please let me know and I’ll add them! :)



  • !eugene@lemmy.world - brought to you by the same people responsible for the Eugene subreddit.
  • ⚠️ !Eugene@kbin.social - appears to be pretty much dead as of the time of posting.
  • !pnw@lemmy.world - the community for the Pacific Northwest region, which Eugene is part of.

Hashtags to Follow

  • #Eugene

Something not on this list?

That’s probably because I wasn’t aware of it. If you want something added to the list, please let me know and I’ll add it assuming it’s relevant to the Eugene-Springfield Fediverse.
