I was wondering how does hubzilla get public posts from networks like diaspora or mastodon.
When hosting diaspora up until introduction of relay servers, getting public posts from other pods required users being connected with users on other servers. This created an issue where amount of public posts was pretty much dependant on amount of active users creating a lot of connections accross the network.
I'm running hubzilla instance for about two weeks, and I noticed the amount of public posts is much lower then native diaspora or mastodon. Does the federation work in similar way to diaspora before relay servers, meaning in order to receive public posts, users have to be connected with my instance (thought other users)?
Is there a way to connect to diaspora relay server?
