Hey there social media hosting people and developers working on any of the #Fediverse systems!

Is there anyone of you at the Chaos Communication Congress in Leipzig this year right after Christmas? Is there anyone interested to have a meeting there?

Just some exchange, we would need some people to moderate the event, but basically some meetup to exchange information and get to know other players in the field.
"Someone" could then register a "talk" or "meetup" for the upcoming congress, I'd say a duration of about 1.5 to 2 hours and maybe 60+ people can be expected, assuming there is many #webmasters or #developers among the visitors at the #35C3.

Any #devs and #webmaster of the following systems, or any that I might have missed that are using #ActivityPup and can communicate with the others, please comment here if you like the idea!
#Friendica #Diaspora #red #Hubzilla #GnuSocial #StatusNet #Mastodon #Pleroma #Socialhome #Ganggo

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks for all of the re-shares of my earlier welcome to the #gplusrefugees (from my Diaspora account). Some folks who are #newhere have expressed frustration with the lack of certain features on #diaspora. Please consider trying out #hubzilla or #friendica as alternatives if you are looking for the abilities to ...
- Edit posts or comments.
- "Like" comments.
- Post pictures in comments.
- Create groups (e.g., around a common interest).
- Receive autocompletes of mentions while composing on the mobile site.

Friendica and Hubzilla implement the Diaspora protocol as well as others ones. I moved from D* to Hubzilla about a month ago and took all of my D* friends with me and then made a bunch of new friends from Mastodon as well. A bonus on Hubzilla is that when the primary instance (pod) for my channel goes down--remember, these #federation instances/pods are all volunteer operations, so you gotta be patient and flexible--I can switch to using a cloned instance. No downtime! (My primary is on hub.disroot.org and my clone is on hub.libranet.de.)

Now, please enjoy a few more warm-hearted folks to follow:
@splendorsolis loves pets and people being kind to each other.
@JB Carroll generously makes his tech knowledge accessible. (And he's on Friendica!)
@Passagier 451 generously boosts newbies and shares humor and joyful curiosities.
@Johnny Rei shares his enthusiastic love of nature.

If you decide to try out Friendica or Hubzilla and want to follow warm-hearted people from the #fediverse as well, I recommend starting with @Ignacio Gallup-Diaz and @Gwenfar, aka Julieanne.

Have fun, make friends, and block the nazis!

Update: Hey, it would have been helpful if I provided some links to learn about the Federation and Hubzilla. Fortunately, on Hubzilla, I can edit my post! Where to start:
\* How the Free Network (Federation and Fediverse) work: https://bit.ly/2Gw0VlG
\* Intro to Hubzilla: https://bit.ly/2IXT6Ye
\* Where to find nodes (instances) of everything: https://the-federation.info/

Welcome to the #gplusrefugees . It's energizing to see so many new faces embracing #diaspora .

The #federation is amazing invention, and a very different way of finding and connecting to others. Briefly, your pod (the part after the @ sign in your webbie) is one instance of the software platform known as Diaspora (which implements a protocol also called Diaspora). And Diaspora is just one platform in a multitude of other platforms that interconnect. You can connect with people on any platform that implements the Diaspora protocol (e.g., Friendica, Pleroma, Hubzilla, or Socialhome). For example, I usually post from my Hubzilla account ( @alysonsee ), and my posts from that account are seen by all of my D\* friends and I see their posts. Here is a handy intro.

If you are looking for new friends out here, let me suggest some of the most welcoming, warm-hearted folks I've met: @Adam Hunt is always ready with a helpful hand, whether on the shoreline IRL or out here in the ether. @Jose Luis always brightens my day. @Birne Helene makes it easy to find other lovely and interesting Diasporans to connect with. makes me a better person just by being who he is.

Hmmm, I think you answered your question yourself:
Although it appears to you that #Friendica is not as big as #Diaspora, but this doesn't matter, because #Friendica can federate to nearly all other federated solutions such as #Mastodon, which is the largest of the different "networks".

With federation it doesn't really matter where the other users are: on Diaspora, on Gnusocial, on Friendica or on Mastodon - just connect with them and you're done.

So, I interpret your question that you already know the answer: #Friendica!

 

Friendica vs. Diaspora* (advice needed)


I've registered accounts on Friendica, Diaspora, and Hubzilla, with the intention of trying all and choosing one.

On paper, Hubzilla seemed the most promising - many functions, nomadic identity, being able to communicate with both the Federation and the Fediverse. In reality, I was not able to connect with anyone outside Hubzilla itself. Maybe that's how that particular instance was set up, but I think I'll park the account for the time being.

Now I'm torn between Diaspora and Friendica. From a regular user perspective, both have active communities, both have attractive interfaces. Diaspora doesn't allow post editing which I found to be a little troublesome, although not a deal-breaker. It doesn't allow theme customization either, not even adding a banner. But it has a nice, clean look and a bigger community.

On the other hand, Friendica can be customized, and it communicates with the Gnu Social and Mastodon. But it has less activity.

Until now I have posted from both accounts, but that's inconvenient. Plus, I'd rather avoid the split-personality effect 😁 (posting/resharing with one account, commenting from the other). I'd prefer to keep just one.

Any words of advice?

#Diaspora #Friendica #help-wanted

 
@Gargron I'd think that #friendica is more suitable as a g+ replacement, as it's not a microblogging platform but more a general social one.

Now that it almost has ActivityPub support, that's just as good as joining mastodon, right?

Seems that Diaspora* development is not as active as friendica or hubzilla's. Consider migrating to there (very wide social networking).

The Great Diaspora Treasure Hunt 1.1


With the influx of new people and new pods it is time for an updated version of The Great Diaspora Treasure Hunt Post

The treasure hunt is about resharing. Resharing can not of course, replace making new posts. But reshares are like ants in the forest. They can be quite a nuisance, but they are a valuable part of the ecosystem as they help the federation. If you are on a new pod there might not be so much federated material yet - because when a pod is opened it will slowly gather new things that are posted but not the old ones. When you reshare an old post with a person on a new pod it becomes visible to him or her.

The federation is a small community and have to do some work to make the community thrive. I have seen the same tendency in small communities in Greenland and the Faroe Islands where the cultural life was a common project. When you return to Copenhagen or another big city you can see how lazy and blazé people are about their local culture. So reposting a thing you just saw is good, but the clever ant goes on a treasure hunt in old posts too (and this means you have to be on an old pod of course). The good thing about doing this is that the post might fell new - even if it’s an oldie’n’goodie - the chance of duplicates in the stream is minimal, and, most importantly, it will help new pods be part of the history of the federation. Digging up a really interesting, fun, thought-provoking or obscene post from the past makes you a Diaspora archaeologist, a pillar of federation society, a provider of quality content to the hungry masses - and it’s (almost) just as easy as a normal reshare.

Follow the tags and you will find the treasures!

Personally I would be pleased if some of all the creative commons artworks on my @Katharsisdrill-profile were shared so more could see and use them.

The Great Diaspora Treasure Hunt #



Sometimes the stream is just dull and reshared. I have read some places were people discuss the endless reshares, and discusses how much quality contant this place needs to get going. But the truth is that resharing is like ants in the forest. They can be quite a nuisance, but they are a valuable part of the ecosystem as they help the federation of this place.

Only... why repost the same thing you just saw reposted. The clever ant goes on a treasure hunt in old posts. The good thing by doing this is the post might fell new even if it's an oldie'n'goodie, the chance of dublicates in the stream is minmal, and, most important, it will help new pods be part of the history of Diaspora and Friendica. Digging up a really interesting, fun, thoughtprovoking or obscene post from the past makes you a Diaspora archelologist, a pillar of federation society, a provider of quality content to the hungry masses - and it's (almost) just as easy as a normal reshare.

So if you are bored with the stream go on find some old posts, the older the better, the less reshares the better, the better the better.

I will at least try to do this more often ...

Friendica forum node will be switched to the RC branch today


Hello everyone,
I'll git-checkout the #Friendica Community Forum node to the current #RC branch today.
I don't expect a long downtime because the database isn't that big. The conversion of the DB structure shouldn't take long. But delivery to and from the forum node will be delayed.

Federation myths


Many of us embrace federation values and, somehow, build or mantain ideas about this model which are not always true. Here are some thoughts and information that may foster awareness about federation.

Federation Statistics, List of Servers, Fediverse


Just some links for looking at statistics, list of pods, etc. First one lists Federation statistics:
- https://the-federation.info

There are also statistics for separate networks, e.g.:
- https://the-federation.info/diaspora
(Does someone maybe know why was there a sudden drop in the number of total users in the middle of '15?)

Fediverse data:
- https://fediverse.network/

List of servers on podupti.me:
- https://podupti.me/

List of Hubzilla public servers:
- https://hubzilla.it/pubsites

This site helps to choose a Mastodon instance (and also shows statistics):
- https://instances.social/

List of Friendica public servers:
- https://dir.friendica.social/servers

Sehr spannend. Ich bastle ebenfalls an einem Pod auf einem Raspi2 - so für den Eigenbedarf.
Allerdings schwankte ich lange zwischen #Friendica und #Hubzilla und habe mich vorerst für Friendica entschieden.

 
Was ist eigentlich dieses #Friendica ?
Ein eigenes Soziales Netzwerk oder ein Sammelbecken für bestehende Soziale Netzwerke?
Ist Friendica auch ein Diaspora Server oder dann nur so etwas wie ein Webclient?

Danke

I'm creating a new #Friendica plugin that automatically fetches #Mastodon custom emojis from the remote server and replace them in the post body in Friendica.

Please reply with your favorite custom emoji from your server!

I started to work on a CLI client for Friendica named friclicli. At the moment I'm working on the foundation of the client: A C library (called libfriclient) with functions representing Friendica API routes (one function per route). The client will use a curses interface (probably ncurses). To make requests to the Friendica API the libcurl library will be used. JSON data will be processed using the cJSON library.

The source code repository is here: https://gitlab.com/ncc1988/friclicli

A symbolic donation challenge


Since you are reading this post I guess you are directly interested in the improvement of Diaspora*. As you probably know Diaspora* couldn't improve without the hard and enthusiastic work of the developers. That is why

I challenge you to give at least a symbolic €0.01/week amount to the Diaspora* developers


€0.01/week is not much. It just €0.52/year so probably you can easily afford that. I guess you throw away much more to buy some fancy junk you don't even need at all ;-)

Isn't €0.01/week too little?

Yes, it is symbolic, but it is much more than nothing.

Also it can be a lot if most of us are willing to join (especially if some of us are willing to give a bit more).

For example, imagine if just 1% of the currently registered users of the federation have been taking this challenge. That would mean about €65/week for the developers. Just 15% of the users that were active in the past 6 month could give €75/week this way. 70% of the monthly active users could give €105/week for the developers by this "symbolic" donation.

Of course, you are free and encouraged to give more. (I also do so.)

How to participate?
- Create an account at https://liberapay.com.
- Add some money to your wallet.
- Start directly donating the developers.

I posted this on my #Facebook. Since I’m a newbie, I’m not certain I got all the information correct. However, I do believe I stayed true to the concept. I'll work with any critique you care to give. Be kind, please. I’m #newhere.
If anyone is interested in an open-sourced, and de-centralized, algorithm-free #socialnetwork where you own your information and it goes nowhere you don’t allow, I have been taking four of the best for a test run these last two weeks—I have nothing but praise for them all. They are:

#diaspora* (lowercase and stylized with the asterisk)
#Friendica
#Hubzilla
#Mastodon

The first three are more akin to Facebook while Mastodon is Twitter-like microblogging network whose popularity has been growing quickly. Here’s the truly great part aside from what is mentioned above: it doesn’t matter which one you choose (minor exception with diaspora*), because they are all federated. Meaning, though I use Friendica, I can see and interact with people on each of the other networks without being a part of them. Huzzah! It’s like adding #Twitter friends to your Facebook with full access from your FB profile. You can even post on their walls or send them private messages

Decentralized means that the networks run on individual servers anyone can set up (the #Federation), but still works like a social network. You choose which server you want to live on, or make your own. Each of these networks have a federation of servers which are part of the larger #Fediverse. In other words, the federations are federated, and no one person or entity owns the network.

I highly recommend Mastodon as a Twitter replacement. I would recommend the others individually depending on your needs and your level of skill.

I have not yet chosen a favorite. But when I do, I will cancel the others, because they are part of the Fediverse and multiple accounts are not necessary. However, if multiple profiles is what you need, two of them offer that capability. Unlike Twitter, where you can use different accounts within the app, here you can have one or more individual and separate profiles on one account. Easy peasy!

See you in the Fediverse!
I am 98% certain none of my friends care about any of this. But, on the off chance I’m wrong, the Fediverse could use more people like us who do care. Thanks for listening.

Converse.js 3.3.1 has been released

Converse.js is a web based XMPP/Jabber instant messaging client.
It enables you to add chat functionality to your website, independent of any specific backend. You will however need an XMPP server to connect to, either your own, or a public one.
Converse.js can be integrated into Ruby on Rails, Django, Plone, Roundcube, Wordpress, Alfresco, Friendica and many more.

Look at the changelog - there are many new features and bug fixes!
What's in the release?
Maintaining a long-term open source front-end JavaScript library almost feels like a Sisyphean task sometimes. As soon as you've rolled the big stone up the hill, the whole JS ecosystem, best practices and tooling changes and you find yourself at the bottom of the hill again.
[...]
No more jQuery
[...]
The last straw for me was when jQuery 3 came out, and half of Converse.js's ~240 tests failed once I plugged it in.

After spending some time trying to figure out what backward incompatible changes they made and how I should update the code, I decided to instead rip jQuery out entirely.
(I would not enjoy working too much in the "JS ecosystem". Ecosystem? Is this the new term for hazardous waste site?)

Meine Vorstellungen eines #Open-Source Browsers :

Schön wäre es doch, wenn z.B. Mozilla.org ebenfalls auch andere Open Source Projekte wie #diaspora #friendica #gnusocial usw. unterstützen würde und sich tatsächlich an ihre eigenen Versprechungen halten würde.

Nämlich :
Internet für Menschen, nicht für Profit

Außerdem : Was ich bis heute nicht so recht nachvollziehen kann, sind die Beweggründe, weshalb ausgerechnet sehr viele LINUX !!! Distributionen immer noch die Firma Google als Default Search-enginge ihren Usern zumuten wollen.

Social-Relay version 1.2.0



New version of the public content #relay server software. This version brings support for passing through also #Diaspora protocol Retraction messages (ie deletions of content). This is important since otherwise a post later deleted that the relay originally delivered would not be delivered. Issues exist in #Diaspora, #Friendica and #Hubzilla issue trackers to get retractions to be sent to the relays.

https://github.com/jaywink/social-relay/releases/tag/1.2.0

Next for the relay system I intend to separate the relay system documentation to it's own repository, since it's not really a part of Social-Relay which is just the server implementing it. Would love to get some opinions on various subjects there then, regarding how to proceed with things like decentralizing the relays and getting rid of the reliance on the-federation.info as a way to bootstrap lists of nodes. Preferably opinions from project admins since the decision on how to decentralize the relays has to be done the way the projects are fine implementing it.

Ping @Davìd M and @Jeremy Pope . Additionally please note the change in the requirement files. I simplified them a bit, changelog has details.

Changelog:

[1.2.0] - 2016-10-25



Added

  • Expose NodeInfo to allow registering relays to pod lists. Unfortunately, NodeInfo schema doesn't contain the relay software key so this NodeInfo document cannot be validated by consumers.
  • Network calls now use a custom user agent Social-Relay/<version> - https://github.com/jaywink/social-relay. Thanks @bmanojlovic for the patch.
  • Relay also Diaspora retraction and photo entities. The former follows the same way like and comment entities are relayed, ie the targets are the same as where the status_message or photo were relayed. photo follows same rules as status_message entities, ie according to subscriber wishes.

Changed

  • Replaced custom payload sending with the new helper from federation. This will not try to deliver to http targets at all. This means nodes that are not using https will not get deliveries. Really, these days, there is no reason to run a public website with http.

Removed

  • Removed suggestion to use pip-tools and convert requirements files to standard Python project requirements files. Didn't dig the workflow after all. To install dev dependencies use requirements/development.txt. For production, use requirements/production.txt, which also contains uWSGI. If you don't deploy using uWSGI, you can just use requirements/requirements.txt.

 

Social-Relay version 1.2.0



New version of the public content #relay server software. This version brings support for passing through also #Diaspora protocol Retraction messages (ie deletions of content). This is important since otherwise a post later deleted that the relay originally delivered would not be delivered. Issues exist in #Diaspora, #Friendica and #Hubzilla issue trackers to get retractions to be sent to the relays.

FOSDEM 2017 - Accepted developer rooms



I see there is a "Decentralized internet" room for the first time, great news! Anyone from #Diaspora, #Friendica, #Hubzilla, #GNUSocial, #Pumpio, #Mediagoblin or other #decentralized social network project peeps planning to submit talks? Doesn't look like the call for proposals is out yet for this room. Will be sure to spend some time in this room in any case.

@MediaGoblin (Christopher) - maybe a good chance to push out #ActivityPub if you're planning to attend this year, hmm?

#FOSDEM #decentralize #internet #thefederation

 
I'm a self service kind of person, so I've really wanted to not make a #newhere post, but here it is. I've been poking around trying to find hashtags to follow specifically for the sole reason I'm even here for, with little luck, and no success. So I'm hoping some more well connected diasporans can get me pointed in the right direction.

I recently found myself in a terrible emotional state in regard to #facebook; most of my colleagues, friends, and family are regular Facebook users, while I have always done my best to avoid it. Partially because of my distrust of large corporations holding a large market share of anything and partially because I don't really feel comfortable sharing my private life with the entire world. I found that simply avoiding it had stopped being effective when I realized a few things that simply must change.
  • My SO spends more time with Facebook than with me, even when we're in the same room.
  • My SO knows more about what's going on with my family than I.
  • I was not being included in activities with my friends as they rely increasingly on Facebook for communication.
  • My avoidance of Facebook has alienated me from my own, real-world, friends and family.
  • There is nothing I can do about it.
That night I spent a lot of time trying to debunk my fears and assuage my concerns. Facebook surely couldn't be as bad as I thought, right? You probably already know the answer to that since you're here, and this isn't a post to describe those issues, but I had no idea how bad it really was. My despair evolved into anger and that anger grew into motivation. Facebook is a threat to my privacy, my safety, and my liberty. And while I had never given them permission to violate my privacy by way registering an account with them, my friends had unwittingly volunteered such information on my behalf. Even worse, I have children who aren't yet old enough to understand the implications of submitting to surveillance, yet by posting news updates about them, my SO has already made that choice for them. The audacity of this scares the shit out of me and all I can really say is #fuckfacebook.

Finding that tools like #diaspora and #friendica exist, and therefore affirm that there are like minded people, helped me to overcome my feelings of helplessness, and helped me to see not only that there is something I can do about the situation, but that I must do that something. What that something is still isn't clear to me, but I have some vague ideas. I talked to my SO, who has since uninstalled the Facebook apps and deleted the account. I expected more of a fight, but our talk gives me hope for the conversations I must have with my family and friends.

I expect when I have those talks, I will need an alternative to offer. Quite frankly, neither diaspora nor friendica are legitimate alternatives. I can't simply say "switch to diaspora" because the things they get from Facebook aren't here. Their existing network of friends aren't here and there's features Facebook offers that diaspora doesn't. I'm going to have to go into those conversations without any kind of #facebook2diaspora support, and I'll have to take a very RMS stance on how I expect them to behave with regard to communicating about and with me. This makes me sad.

The point of all my blabbering here is that I've found it hard to find anyone to connect with about encouraging people to switch to a #federated social platform, any kind of steering committee in which to argue about what such a campaign should look like, or any meaningful way to advocate for features (I can't into Ruby, and yes I know about Loomio, but c'mon, seriously? Create yet another account or sign on with another social networking provider? wtf. Ok, I might use github, but I found that login screen offensive). If you know of other hashtags and/or people I should follow on these topics, let me know.

tl;dr can has halp getting my friends to leave the facebooks?
