Movim is a distributed social networking platform founded in 2010. It can be accessed using existing XMPP clients and Jabber accounts, and is a free and open source software licensed under the AGPL.#movim #ejabberd #socialnetwork #federation #xmpp #agpl #prosody #debian #freesoftware
With version 0.12 released in October, Movim migrated its official server to ejabberd. Before, they were using Metronome, a Prosody fork. Today, we are chatting with Timothée Jaussoin, the founder of Movim, about this very complex migration.
We now have a proper packaging for our Linux distribution – Debian, which certainly makes it easier to maintain. There’s also an improved scalability and more stable CPU and memory consumption, which helps to predict hardware requirements.
Even if I see ejabberd more as a tool that needs integration and tuning to create a proper platform, ejabberd seems to be the more serious solution to build proper messaging systems using the XMPP protocol.

While Signal technically is free software it doesn't feel like free software.
You can change it, but then you're no longer welcome in the Signal ecosystem and can't send messages to other Signal users.
But Riot has other advantages that make it, in some aspects, superior to Signal. Riot is based on the so-called Matrix protocol which is a federated protocol. That means that anyone who wants can run a Matrix server can do so and Riot users from all these servers can communicate with one another. There is no central instance that controls Matrix or Riot.
Today, the new attempt is Keybase.io, which many users like for its convenience (linking PGP keys to social media accounts). But it fundamentally violates the end-to-end privacy principle of PGP by binding keys to privacy-invading services. Periodically, he said, proposals pop up to implement "validating" PGP keyservers—but none of them work in a decentralized fashion. He urged users to stand up against all attempts to centralize PGP.
Finally, he looked at federation in general. Mail servers have more and more difficulty interoperating, he said, and XMPP has "lost its track" and is being replaced by centralized systems like WhatsApp and Signal. He encouraged developers to make federation a priority and to design for it from the beginning.
