Well, anyway, welcome to The Federation! Here is some more information about this social network!
Welcome to the Federation!The Federation
is a global social network that works by having different computers talk to each other, instead of having one computer having full control over the network and people's data.
The Federation includes five different projects:They are interconnected
Each of those projects are installed onto different computers called nodes
, and those nodes talk to the others, and together make the full Federation. Any post you make can be viewed from any node.
Unlike other networks like Facebook, you see what you want
, not what they want you to see. Content does not get bumped up because of popularity or what you do on the social network.
are essential to The Federation. You follow
hashtags, and posts tagged with it appear in your stream
. Hashtags open up your posts to different communities. The #newhere
tag is followed by people that want to welcome new users into the community. The #linux
tag is followed by people that like GNU/Linux systems, or just computers in general.
Just remember, if you want to find content here remember to follow #hashtags
, and other people.
When you post things there is an option called visibility
. It decides who sees your posts. Public
means everyone can see them, "all aspects"
(or similar) means only your contacts can see them, etc,
It is our
job as the community to make content, invite people
, fight spam, and even work on the projects themselves.Have fun in this community.
