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
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:
loves pets and people being kind to each other.
generously makes his tech knowledge accessible. (And he's on Friendica!)
generously boosts newbies and shares humor and joyful curiosities.
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:
