La Fediverse, c’est pas une starteupe
 
It's nice to see how the #Fediverse is finally growing. Something we have been waiting for since 2008. I'm also glad that I'm present in the relatively cosy and friendly #Hubzilla corner of the Fediverse. Thank you all and keep being awesome.

Second day at #rubyconf had more people "remember" #diaspora and "heard of" #mastodon. Even met a couple people with accounts, but none active. For first time "friended" a new person on #diaspora from meeting them in person first, they were even familiar with ActivityPub and development on that and Diaspora federation #ruby gems. Liked encountering a little more #fediverse profile today :).
 

Me on Mastodon


Mein Konto Facebook habe ich vor etwas über einem Jahr gelöscht, Twitter musste letzten Monat dran glauben.

Seit März bin ich bei Mastodon und seit Mai auf der Instanz mastodonten.de und ich glaube ich bin dort genau richtig. Mastodon ist für mich kein Ersatz für Twitter und auch keine Alternative, es ist eine völlig andere Umgebung. Man begegnet dort überwiegend netten Menschen mit denen sich über alles mögliche gut unterhalten kann. Ja, so etwas geht in anderen Netzwerken auch aber es ist dennoch anders. Bei Mastodon zählt der Mensch. Nicht das was er kann, wie viele Beiträge er hat oder sonstiger Quatsch. Natürlich gibt es auch da irgendwelche Chaoten aber deren Anzahl ist recht überschaubar.

In keinem anderen Netzwerk habe ich von so vielen Menschen so viele persönliche Dinge gelesen. Man nimmt Anteil, man freut sich für andere, man hilft sich. Es herrscht eine sehr angenehme Atmosphäre, ich kann es wirklich nur jedem empfehlen der von den so genannten „g... show more
 
I know I'm in a bit of a bubble but since the whole thing that got me into #ruby development was to contribute to #diaspora I was shocked when no one I talked to at #rubyconf has heard of #mastodon and the one person that heard of #diaspora thought it died a long time ago. I knew we had work to do on getting the #fediverse profile bumped up but still shocked at the lack of awareness of it here. Going to put my thinking cap on on this topic...

Why Mastodon is defying the “critical mass” - It’s a mistake to judge the Fediverse as though it’s a Valley startup


Mastodon (an alternative to Twitter) is now over two years old and (to borrow a turn of phrase from Terry Pratchett), it’s still not dead yet. Somehow it’s managed to defy those early critics who said it “won’t survive” and was “dead in the water”.

It makes a good case for the importance of the ActivityPub standard, upon which Mastodon and other social platforms are based. However, it still makes the same mistake as those early doomsayers.

Clearly many people do not appreciate that the fediverse is not competing in the same way as Silicon Valley centralised startups - it tackles the challenge in a different manner.

The @GetTogether project needs help making an open source federated alternative to MeetUp.com.


You can already use their first instance (https://gettogether.community), but they need help with building the federation side of things, so that instances can link together and with the rest of the Fediverse.

If you’re a coder and interested in helping, you may want to take a look at this post:

You can now verify your Mastodon account (sort of):
  • Establish an official website which people know is yours
  • Add a link to your official website from your Mastodon profile
  • Edit your Mastodon profile and go to the section on links, paste the HTML ownership code into the code of the front page of your website
  • Save your Mastodon profile, your instance will check that the ownership code is present on your website. If it is, you get a green tick next to the link.
  • Congratulations, you're verified!
(This depends on your official website being well known to people, hence the "sort of". The feature is present in versions 2.6 onwards.)

Are you looking for people to follow on the #Fediverse?

You can find opt-in lists of people to follow at Trunk, organised by category:

https://communitywiki.org/trunk

The lists are 100% people who manually asked to be on them, there are no algorithms or other weirdness.

(The site also has instructions on how to get your name added to the lists.)

Write Freely, the open source federated blogging platform, has just got its first release:

https://github.com/writeas/writefreely/releases/tag/v0.1.0

The official Write Freely site is here:

https://writefreely.org/

If you just want to sign up for a blog, try the project’s original instance at https://write.as

Write Freely federates with ActivityPub so you can follow its blogs from the fediverse. The platform looks very minimalist and clean, the idea is to focus on the text rather than the layout.

There should be an official launch announcement soon by the official blog at https://blog.writefreely.org/

In case you missed it, there's a non-technical explanation of federation/decentralisation on switching.social:

https://switching.social/federated-sites/

It's aimed at people who have no prior knowledge. If you know someone who is confused by how a decentralised platform works (for example Diaspora compared to Facebook), you might want to send them this link.

Federated Social Networks need a good categorised central directory of forums/groups and interests - not just profile and hashtag searching


After seeing my MeWe groups growing far more strongly than my Profile followings I have been looking a bit deeper into Friendica, Hubzilla and Diaspora/Pluspora for similar functionality. The potential is there but a federation has an even bigger need for a user to be able to browse forums/groups that are ranked in popularity across all federated instances.

They all seem to allow you to search the global directory but return a mix of profiles and no real good results. Some are really dismal and I'm sorry but these networks need to get with it if they want people to connect effectively around common interests, hobbies, etc. Maybe are have just been spoilt with Google+ as it... show more

We're about to launch into a heavy construction phase of the Red project (which will directly impact the Hubzilla project). I'm sending this post to folks connected with the Hubzilla project as a heads up. What you will ultimately come to know as Hubzilla 4.0 is being worked on right now and involves hundreds of thousands of lines of changed code from the current Hubzilla releases.

Using Friendica as a bridge between Federation and Fediverse.


Hello all,

I am, like many, a #gplusrefugee . However, I'm also a #roleplayer , and G+ was a nice haven for a lot of my peers.

Following the announcement of the G+ demise, a lot of them settled elsewhere: MeWe, Diaspora, Mastodon.

While MeWe seems to be the community's favorite, there are... issues with it, that have been explained elsewhere.

So, my choice was between Diaspora and Mastodon.

I already set up more than one mastodon account outside this world: one on dice.camp, a Mastodon node set up by Dungeon World author Sage La Torra and already inhabited by some fellow Gplussers. Some folks opened tabletop.social .

Me, I moved to Diaspora instead, and found it quite cool mainly because it indeed is, but also because I'm not really fond with the twitter-like setup of Masto... show more

A Glossary For The Fediverse - A searchable glossary Focused on Social Media in the Fediverse and Federated Networks


A federated social network is a collection of different servers/instances/pods, often running different social networks, which allows users to follow and interact with those elsewhere in the network (my own definition).

But this is a useful glossary if you ever wondered what ActivityPub, Atom, FunkWhale, Hubzilla, Mastodon, Matrix, OStatus, etc means.

Zap and Osada do one thing (social networking) and do it well.


i just saw this comment @Mike Macgirvin made in a support forum thread recently:
Zap and Osada do one thing (social networking) and do it well.

Use Osada if you want a really good ActivityPub server, and use Zap if you want or need nomadic identity and much stronger privacy than the fediverse can offer.

Select one or the other. You can't have it all. That actually doesn't work - and there isn't any way to make it work.

Zap will always be the smaller network, because people will always give up their privacy to follow the herd and be where their friends are.

Use Hubzilla if you actually know what a 'platform' is and want to build something great (decentralised communities and cities with shoppes and
