♲ @email@example.com: During that time I have met a lot of nice new people, also in real life. Some of them are still here, some are gone or I don't find them anymore after so many instance breakdowns, especially in the #gnusocial world. Luckily the #Fediverse is still growing and new ppl arrive while others leave again. I am glad to be a part of this network. #Mastodon #Fediverse12 #HappyFedi2U If you are interested in #FreeSoftware #GNULinux feel free to follow. I usually follow back.
I've come across a lot of people in the fediverse who appear to be using Mastodon, but I think would find the privacy model of Diaspora much more to their liking. If Diaspora ever has a change of heart and decides to federate over ActivityPub, and produce some user-friendly web videos etc explaining how the Diaspora UI works, I suspect they would have a huge uptick in users. I can certainly think of people I'd encourage to migrate there.
It's a good question. I'm not sure. Maybe to the extent that instances runs on "cloud" servers (AWS etc) and other middleware layers that automatically run stuff through Cloudflare to prevent #DDoS and other bot or hive-like activity? Can anyone shed any light on this?
"#Platforms should be fast, scalable, easy to port should I need to switch platforms/servers. Popularity is a concern but that doesn't mean you have to
compromise for data mining monsters like #TikTok or #Facebook, because everyone’s using it”
Dispora has it's own federation protocol (a variant of #OStatus), and last I checked its core team adamantly refused to consider adding #ActivityPub. I can see why in a way. D* works quite differently to Titter-a-likes like #Mastodon and #Pleroma. But that didn't stop Mike McG from supporting AP in #Hubzilla and later #Zap.
#Mastodon: "a #descentralização da moderação é muito mais eficaz para detectar abusos e agir rapidamente. A estrutura centralizada [do #Twitter].. e a preocupação com liberdade de expressão faz com que uma mentira / injúria se disseminem pela rede."
Yo quiero dar las gracias a todas las personas que estan programando y manteniendo las plataformas que uso:
