Which server should an new #Fediverse user choose?
Eugen, the creator of Mastodon and admin of the biggest Mastodon server, mastodon.social, talks about the challenges new users might face when they want to register a Mastodon account. In fact these problems aren't limited to Mastodon.
Every user planning to create an account somewhere in the #Fediverse has to make several decisions first:
1. Which platform?
Do I want to settle on #Mastodon, #Diaspora, #Friendica, #Hubzilla, #Pleroma, #Socialhome or one of the more specialised choices? Given that most of these platforms differ in features, chances are high that I can make a choice based on technical facts. Maybe I already know some accounts I want to follow, which might narrow down the list of choices since not all networks are connected (most notably Mastodon and Diaspory can't see each other, so I can either use the one I need or one of the multi-protocol platforms). Even if I can't decide yet, I'll just register one account for every platform.
2. Which server?
Now this might be the harder question. Let's assume I picked a platform and now want to register my account. Which server should I chose and why? For some platforms there are servers that are specialised on single topics, so if, for example, I am an English speaking Open Source evangelist and want to use Mastodon, there is a server that is just right for me.
But what If I have several main interests? There is no special community for people who like knitting and fishing. Or, more likely, what if I can't even decide on my interests right now? See, I'm interested in many things, nothing special though, just want to talk about things. Where should I register?
Of course there are many servers in every network that aren't limited to any set of topics. So I'll just choose the one that most other people already chose, right?
Well, nearly. And that's exactly Eugen's problem here. As a user, you want to use a server that
- is well maintained and is here to stay.
- has some more users so its public timeline isn't empty.
But from a technical view it would be great if users would spread equally over all servers. So I'll just choose the one that has the least users, right?
Well, nearly. Maybe a compromise is the way to go. It could look like this:
- Look for a server with more than one user.
- See if it exists for more than, say, three months.
- Look up the admins, see what they post, ask yourself if you like them.
- Have a look at the server's public timeline.
These tools might help answering a newcomer's questions:
But the main question stays: how do you explain this to a passer-by who just wants to quickly create a Fediverse account? Could a landing page featuring a "I'm feeling lucky" button that will automatically pick a random server help?

I could even imagine that, with Article 13 in effect, more people are switching to alternative social networks with non-profit background to host their content. That would be even good news for diaspora...

I was trying to make an #easy-share-option for Android/D* a while back but discovered that at the time, the only part of the #API which was implemented was the #OAuth2 / #OpenID login.
I did start to implement parts of the API to achieve my goal (sloppily, and in PHP ;) ) but got sidetracked into trying to find out what the state of the D* API was at the time (ie nonexistent) so let it slide.
Maybe I'll chuck the code up on my #github at some point. #diaspora #client #native
Hello and a big welcome
to everyone new to diaspora*
We're so pleased that you've decided to give diaspora* a try. It's fantastic that you've joined us!
We hope that you quickly find your way here, and enjoy getting connected with people and content.
Here's a few tips for getting started:
- There are some step-by-step tutorials on our project website covering the basics of how diaspora* works, and how to get connected with people. There's a link to these in the side-bar, should you ever want to read them in future, and there's also an in-app Help section you can access through your user menu (at the right-hand end of the header bar).
- You can search for people by name or by diaspora* ID (which looks like an email address), if you know it, from the search field in the header bar. You can invite people to join you in diaspora* by sending them a link to our project website, from where they can choose their own pod to register with. Your friends don't need to be on the same pod as you in order to connect and communicate with you.
- One good way to start getting connected with people is to start following some #tags of subjects that interest you (maybe #music, #photography, #linux, or #activism ... whatever interests you) so that you will see content on those topics in your stream. You can then start following people whose posts you find interesting, by placing them into one of your aspects.
- If you have any questions, post something with the #question or #help tag, and people will try to help you. Make sure to make your post public so anyone who can help is able to see it!
We're trying to improve diaspora* all the time, fixing bugs, honing performance and adding new features. But how fast we can do this is limited by the time developers have. To improve diaspora* faster, we need more developers! If you've just signed up and can code, or know someone who can and who might be interested in joining our team, get in touch!

- Protocol - An agreed format that enables software applications to communicate with (or “federate” with) each other. The two most heavily used protocols around here are Diaspora and ActivityPub. As an end user, you don’t have to care about the protocol you are using and you don’t ever see the “protocol” other than it enables or limits which users you can see.
- Platform - The software application that implements a protocol(s) for federating. The Diaspora platform implements the eponymously named Diaspora protocol. Mastodon, for example, implements the ActivityPub protocol. Friendica implements both the Diaspora and the ActivityPub protocols.
- Pod - The server(s) running a particular platform (software application). Also known as an “instance” or a “node”. For example, pluspora.com is one of the many pods running the Diaspora platform; mastodon.social is one of the many pods running the Mastodon platform; and libranet.de is one of the many pods running the Friendica platform.
- The Federation - The collective of pods running platforms that implement the Diaspora protocol. This includes all pods running Diaspora (the software application), Hubzilla, Friendica, or Socialhome. The users on *any* of these pods can connect to and interact with each other.
- The Fediverse - The collective of pods running platforms that implement the ActivityPub (and OStatus) protocols. This includes all pods running Mastodon, Pixelfed, Hubzilla, Friendica, Socialhome, or many, many others. The users on *any* of these pods can connect to and interact with each other.
- The Free Network - The collective of pods in The Federation and The Fediverse, combined.
Hope that helps and doesn’t make this seem more complicated than it actually is. The main difference from other social networks is that no single entity owns and runs a platform. On G+ or Facebook, you are locked into that platform/company to talk to other users. In the Free Network, one set of volunteers writes the software and puts it out there for free, and another set of volunteers downloads the software and runs it on their servers and invites us to have user accounts for free. (But you should definitely donate to help them with the costs, if you can.) If we, as users, decide we aren’t happy with our current experience, we can change platforms or pods and still keep all of our friends/connections. On Facebook, G+, Twitter, and the like, you are locked in; and if you want leave, you go cold turkey.
Glad you joined us here in the land of choice.

G+ style Multi-Column Streams in diaspora, Tumblr, Mastodon, Hubzilla, Friendica, YouMe, and MeWe.
I’ve put together CSS styles which provide multi-column Streams in various social media platforms. This has a huge effect on browsing speed. To use them, you:
1) Download Stylus plugin (Chrome, Firefox or Opera): https://add0n.com/stylus.html
2) Install desired Multi-Column style from here: https://userstyles.org/users/773238
3) Modify the domain it acts on if you're using a different pod
= = = = = ADDITIONAL NOTES = = = = =
diaspora is the most refined, with a lot of extra features like multicolumn comments, autoexpand all posts, font size customization, and other UI enhancements
Tumblr is also solid; it keeps the standard width of Tumblr posts and is responsive to width (2 or 3 columns)
Mastodon is maybe 95% good, depending on how you prefer to use Mastodon.
Hubzilla is maybe 80% good. Because of the right sidebar, this is limited to two columns by default.
Friendica is maybe 60% good. There's some sort of vertical scrolling bug when the left sidebar is too tall. If the left sidebar is short enough to fit on screen, all is good. But if the left sidebar is too tall, then scrolling gets stuck when you're too near the bottom of the content.
YouMe is maybe 40% good. It works, but it also affects single post view. And YouMe itself is really buggy right now (it only just launched). But the good news is that my userstyle can be used to produce single column (it's normally 2 column, which not everybody likes).
MeWe is maybe 50% good. As with Hubzilla, the right sidebar limits available space. So, it only provides 2 columns by default. And due to the complexity of MeWe, it only applies to the home and Groups pages - so, only single column view if you go to a single group. But as far as I've noticed, it's not buggy.
Of these platforms, the only ones I use significantly are diaspora, Tumblr, and Mastodon. Those will be the best supported, naturally.

Cuando todavía diaspora* estaba en beta y muy pocos la habíamos usado salió a la luz google+ con una interfaz idéntica y un sistema de administrar contactos similar, solo que a los aspectos los llamaban círculos, tiempo después al liberarse la primer versión estable de D* y hacerse una red algo conocida no faltaron y no fueron pocos quienes dijeron que era una copia de g+, Luego muchos de estos muchos no se retractaron al informarles de que en realidad la red de la gran G era una mala copia de D* ya que olvidaron copiar las partes que garantizan la soberanía y la libertad, ahora que diaspora* respira más que nunca y que g+ D.E.P. solo me queda por decir:
Bien Venidos al la original!!!
La mayoría de las personas que han venido a #diáspora* de G + están usando sus nombres reales.
Es posible que algunos de ustedes no sepan que no tienen que usar su nombre real en la diáspora. Puedes llamarte a ti mismo como quieras. De hecho, puedes ser quien quieras en la diáspora*. No hay necesidad de revelar nada sobre ti que no quieras.
¡Si quieres ser un gecko ingenioso, puedes!
Por supuesto, si quiere ser usted mismo y usar su nombre real, eso también está bien. Pero no estás restringido de esa manera.
¡Que te diviertas!

(english) I try to create an overview of the features of the different federated platforms and which communication protocols they are capable of. Or add another platform (with sources) that can "speak" the communication protocol that is mentioned on the sheet. Once it's finished it will be available for everybody. https://github.com/hoergen/besser-der-podcast/tree/master/fediverse

We had some team-internal discussions around this topic, and Fla's post was the result of one conversation, as we were unsure if people were interested, and if so, how many people. Fla agreed to write and share his post to have a somewhat neutral person do it, and it seems like some of you were interested.
So, let's start this little experiment then, shall we? Click here to go to Patreon, and be sure to read the full campaign description, as well as the post explaining the lack of true rewards. If you have any questions, concerns, or other forms of feedback, reach out. Also, just in case this isn't clear enough from the description on Patreon and by the fact I'm writing this with my personal account: This is my thing, and although I have general consensus by the active core team and some other folks like Fla, this is not the official diaspora* project team as a whole.

Ok how in the heck do I use Diaspora?? My guide to making this platform work for me
So you're here from some other platform and lo-and-behold the system here doesn't act like the other place (whatever it might be). This can be confusing, off-putting, or maybe exhilarating. Whatever blows your hair back. Below is my guide to what I do in order to like using Diaspora
First what are my uses and how do I actually engage with it
I'm about 90% mobile client so it is essential for me that it works within reason. I have an android phone so I use Dandelion as my client. I've set it to use the "Desktop View" on the client which allows me to tag people in on posts and comments. NOTA BENE that often I find the list of names populate below my screen and I have to scroll up to see them! But it works and this is a critical feature for me.
For the 10% I'm on a desktop (like now where I'm banging on the keyboard like yahoo) I have leveraged the skills of a couple of folks here, namely @Isaac Kuo and @Filip H.F. "FiXato" Slagter. see this link on customizing your stream in a desktop browser. I've added reply buttons on the comments so I can easily tag someone, multi-column formatting of the stream so I can see a bunch of stuff at once, and auto-expanding of bigger posts, jury is still out on that one. But I installed the greasemonkey extension in my browser (firefox y'all!!) and it has been great hacking my stream. Even though I'm just a script kiddie.
But you might ask "Why can't I upload pictures bigger than 4.2mb?" I ask that too. Maybe the founders of diaspora were fans of USENET and want us to uuencode all of our fleshy pictures and whatnot, but I've found a way to upload my giant 10 megapixel (or whatever) mobile photos right from my phone! You get on FDroid (see my earlier post way back here and more specifically HERE) and download "Get reduced picture" and this thing is great. When you go to tap on that little camera icon, you then go to the menu to select 'get reduced photo' as your source then you select your album software and just browse to the picture. It will automatically get rid of the meta data in the photo and reduce the size to something that makes the admins happy. Yeah yeah, get over it. Google "free services" aren't free. This is, so you have to make concessions.
iPhone users, I'm sorry but I can't help you, hopefully someone else will chime in.
For the desktop there are a multitude of programs you can use to reduce your photos to a smaller data size without totally killing the quality. I don't do it much so I can't offer and slick advice. I bet there is a web browser plugin that does it. Maybe someone could dig in on that a bit.
What are my habits while using this thing?
So yay, now you maybe have some software that will let you engage with the platform in a way that isn't so rudimentary anymore, things look a little more fancy and you can post and tag and things at will. Now what? It's like you've tuned up the car and you need to find a track to eat tires and brake pads at. Well grab your helmet and let's go!
First thing is first, aspects. They are circles, groups, whatever. Add people to aspects that you want to see their crap in your stream. It is just that easy. There are tons of ways to dice this up, but lets just dip our toes into that water. Find people that share stuff you think you might want to see and add them into an aspect.
Hashtags. Seems dated, but this is a tool you have at your disposal. Search hashtags, add them if you like the results. Then you can find more people that maybe you want to add to your aspects. Follow more esoteric hashtags, I follow
#sunsetand I love what it pulls into my stream. Maybe you want to follow
#shavedredheadedprieststhat is cool and I won't judge. Do it, get content into your stream. THEN you can start judging. With your like button.
LIKING. Holy shit why does diaspora thing I want to follow everything I like? Fuck. That. Shit. I wish i could opt out of that garbage but not yet. So what you do is 'like' something then click that little freaking bell icon at the top of the post (yes it pisses me off that I have to like at the bottom then scroll back up to unfollow. First world problems. If you don't do that, your notifications will quickly get out of hand.
Ah yes, notifications. Some complain about the lack of a mobile client and notifications. Hey I get emails when relevant shit happens on here, like getting tagged, or a DM or whatever. The rest of it can wait. Seriously you should be ok with that too. None of this shit is really serious around here that can't wait until you get a chance to sit on the shitter and parse out your notifications. Don't let your device be the boss of you! You're better than that!
Upvoting, +1, liking comments. Does not exist. This sucks. I've done a physical +1 and tag the name of the person whose comment I liked. I've done nothing. I've tried to continue the conversation. All of these are hacks and work with varying success. But I tell you what, if you aren't engaging, shit gets boring around here.
CONTENT you get what you give. Post up some shit! Post it public so others can see it! Post some private too, because hey we have this cool tool of aspects, may as well leverage it. But post some public shit too. Seriously. This dance won't be fun if everyone is sitting on the side of the dance floor like a bunch of 6th graders while the DJ is blasting hair metal. Get out there and Dab and Foxtrot and Moonwalk and what the fuck ever you want to do to express yourself!
Blocking Yeah I block shit. You can too. It isn't air tight but neither is life. If you are being harassed, @David Thiery and @Di Cleverly and @Nathan Weaver are super awesome moderators. Ask for help. Understand it isn't perfect because the world isn't perfect and humans are assholes. Especially me.
I don't know, this might be everything. Markdown is cool. I'm not good at it yet. There are tons of awesome people here and lots of cool content and no hidden agendas for the algorithms to make you see or not see any one particular thing. Post some shit, interact. It isn't fun if you don't get some skin in the game.

#Editieren von #Diaspora-Posts
Hm, wünschen sich viele, habe ich mir auch schon einmal gewünscht, finde es aber aus folgenden #Grund (die technische Seite lasse ich mal aussen vor) schwierig:
Wenn jemand einen #Post verfasst und ich diesen like oder kommentiere, dann könnte man später den #Inhalt drastisch verändern und somit jemanden eine #Meinung unterjubeln, welche so nicht existiert.
Und ob ich alle 5000 Posts kontrollieren würde oder auch nur könnte, die ich kommentiert habe? Das halte ich für unrealistisch.

Two questions, however, I have in advance:
- Would the Hubzilla users among us recommend a certain pod? And if so, do you have reasons for your position?
- Is it possible to migrate contacts from d\* to h? (That's the crucial one. I'd hate to recreate the whole list of almost 700 contacts.)

Article 13 : Filtres de téléchargement
Le négociateur parlementaire Axel Voss a accepté l'accord entre la France et l'Allemagne, que j'ai présenté dans un poste récent :
* Les sites commerciaux et les applications dans lesquels les utilisateurs peuvent publier du matériel doivent faire " les meilleurs efforts " pour acheter par anticipation des licences pour tout ce que les utilisateurs peuvent télécharger, c'est-à-dire tout contenu protégé par le droit d'auteur dans le monde. Une entreprise impossible.
- De plus, tous les sites, à l'exception de très peu d'entre eux (petits et très nouveaux) devront faire tout ce qui est en leur pouvoir pour empêcher tout ce qui pourrait être une copie non autorisée d'une œuvre qu'un titulaire de droits a enregistrée sur la plate-forme. Ils n'auront d'autre choix que de mettre en place des filtres de téléchargement qui, par nature, sont coûteux et sujets aux erreurs.
Le vote final aura lieu en mars ou avril, un mois avant les élections européennes.
Diaspora ne peut pas avoir des filtres Upload comme Google, il est trop cher d'acheter ces filtres de Google. Diaspora ne peut pas fermer.
#SaveDiaspora contactera votre député européen avant les élections européennes et avant que les députés européens ne votent. Il vous appartient de dire clairement à vos représentants : s'ils votent pour les articles 11 et 13, cela signifie que vous ne voterez pas pour eux lors des élections européennes qui se tiendront le 26 mai 2019.
Soyez persévérant, mais s'il vous plaît, soyez toujours gentil.
Articolo 13: Upload filters
Il negoziatore parlamentare Axel Voss ha accettato l'accordo tra Francia e Germania che ho esposto in un recente post:
* I siti commerciali e le applicazioni in cui gli utenti possono pubblicare materiale devono fare "i migliori sforzi" per acquistare preventivamente licenze per tutto ciò che gli utenti possono eventualmente caricare - cioè: tutti i contenuti protetti da copyright nel mondo. Un'impresa impossibile.
* Inoltre, tutti i siti, tranne pochissimi (sia quelli piccoli che quelli molto nuovi) dovranno fare tutto ciò che è in loro potere per prevenire qualsiasi cosa che possa essere una copia non autorizzata di un'opera che un titolare dei diritti ha registrato con la piattaforma. Non avranno altra scelta se non quella di implementare filtri di upload, che per loro natura sono costosi e soggetti ad errori.
* Nel caso in cui un tribunale ritenga che i suoi sforzi di licenza o di filtraggio non siano abbastanza accaniti, i siti sono direttamente responsabili delle violazioni come se fossero stati loro stessi a commetterle. Questa massiccia minaccia porterà le piattaforme a rispettare eccessivamente queste regole per rimanere sul sicuro, peggiorando ulteriormente l'impatto sulla nostra libertà di parola.
La votazione finale si svolgerà a marzo o aprile, un mese prima delle elezioni europee.
Diaspora non può avere Upload filters come Google, è troppo costoso comprare questi filtri da Google. Diaspora non può chiudere.
#SalvaDiaspora contatta il tuo europarlamentare prima delle elezioni europee e prima del voto degli europarlamentari. Sta a voi rendere chiaro ai vostri rappresentanti: Se loro voteranno l'articolo 11 e 13 questo comporterà che voi non li votiate alle elezioni europee che si terrà il 26 maggio 2019. Siate insistenti, ma per favore, siate sempre gentili.
Article 13: Upload filters
Parliament negotiator Axel Voss accepted the deal between France and Germany I laid out in a recent blog post:
* Commercial sites and apps where users can post material must make “best efforts” to preemptively buy licences for anything that users may possibly upload – that is: all copyrighted content in the world. An impossible feat.
* In addition, all but very few sites (those both tiny and very new) will need to do everything in their power to prevent anything from ever going online that may be an unauthorised copy of a work that a rightsholder has registered with the platform. They will have no choice but to deploy upload filters, which are by their nature both expensive and error-prone.
* Should a court ever find their licensing or filtering efforts not fierce enough, sites are directly liable for infringements as if they had committed them themselves. This massive threat will lead platforms to over-comply with these rules to stay on the safe side, further worsening the impact on our freedom of speech.
The final vote is in March or April a month before the European Elections.
Diaspora cannot have upload filter like have Google, it is too much expensive buy these filter from Google. Diaspora cannot close.
#SaveDiapora contact yours MEPS before EU Elections and before MEPS vote. It is up to you to make clear to your representatives: Their vote on whether to break the internet with Articles 11 and 13 will make or break your vote in the EU elections. Be insistent – but please always stay polite.
