Mal an die #admins in die Runde. Ich bin froh bei @milan zu sein, keine Frage. Allerdings #misskey finde ich cool, bei #pleroma würde ich auch gern spielen. #diaspora austauschen und selbst #hubzilla nutzen. Wie nutzt ihr #Server, wie #hetzner?


 
Recuerden, que #friendica sigue siendo la red de redes dentro del #fediverso.

No, no tiene ningun thema o formato tan chulo como el de #mastodon o el de #pleroma.

Sino, porque es una #red #social flexible e integradora: Con una cuenta en freindica puedes tener contactos de #diaspora, #mastodon, #pleroma, #socialhome, #gnusocial, #peertube, #read-as, #pixelfed, #WriteFreely, #WordPress, #hubzilla, # microblog-pub, #osada, ...

Ademas, y gracias en parte a #plugins puedes extender sus funcionalidades, como conectar a #twitter o usarse de espejo de paginas con #rss, o poder compartir tu calendario de actividades, o recibir publicaciones directamente desde blogs y otros sitios.

Si, con friendica puedes hacer mas de lo que te imaginas. Solo necesitas intentarlo y atreverte.

(Hasta aqui la tanda publicitaria y propagandistica)


 
Oh hello #ActivityPub network from #Socialhome \o/

Finally flipped the switch! ActivityPub support is very alpha still but far enough that dogfooding is becoming the only efficient way forward.

Plus it's my birthday, so let this be a present to myself, after so much work to make this little project of mine multi-protocol, joining #Friendica and #Hubzilla in having the largest reach in the #Fediverse ;)





The account @jaywink@diaspodon.fr will not get new posts at some point in the future after a few announcements to followers - follow me here! Thanks @{https://diaspodon.fr/@dada} for offering me a home while building my AP support <3


 
an sich möchte ich mich, wenn eine Instanz "crasht", gesperrt wird, ..., nahtlos auf einer anderen Instanz anmelden können und dort mit meinen gewohnten Daten (Kontakten, Posts, ...) weiterarbeiten.

Das hört sich an wie das Feature von #Hubzilla mit dem Namen 'nomadische Identität'.

Hab ich nicht getestet und funktioniert AFAIK auch nur zwischen Hubzilla-Instanzen. Aber halte ich immer noch für ein Killer-Feature, wenn es denn für die gesamte Föderation funktionieren würde.

Ich wünschte, die Mastodonten würden verstehen, dass Fediverse so viel mehr als nur Mastodon ist.

Vortrag über das Fediverse von Tobias






Zum Ende der Sommerpause der Salonabende im Schätzchen, dem Café für Schöne Dinge & Salonkultur, war ich am 10. August eingeladen, einen Vortrag über das Fediverse und Friendica als Alternative zu den kommerziellen Plattformen wie Facebook, Instagram und nebenan.de zu halten.

Das Fediverse ist ein Netzwerk von unterschiedlichen Social Media Plattformen, die alle als Freie Software umgesetzt sind. Die Knoten des Netzwerks, also die einzelnen Installationen bzw. Dienste, kommunizieren dabei über offene Protokolle mit einander, ähnlich wie man es von E-Mails her kennt. Damit können die Nutzerïnnen der einzelnen Dienste im Fediverse, über die Grenzen der jeweiligen Dienste hinweg, mit allen anderen Nutzerïnnen interagieren

Die Verwendung von #Hubzilla als Soziales Medium klappt schon mal ganz gut - das Hinzufügen von Kontakten, auch von #Mastodon oder #Friendica ist grds. unproblematisch. Allerdings kommen z. B. Favorisierungen nicht unbedingt beim jeweils anderen Netzwerk an; vermutlich liegt das an der unterschiedlichen Unterstützung von ActivityPub als Schnittstelle - während es für Mastodon das primäre Protokoll ist, unterstützt Hubzilla es zwar zur Erhöhung der Interoperabilität, legt den Fokus aber wohl eher auf sein eigenes ZOT-Protokoll.

Etwas verwirrend sind die vielen Funktionen von Hubzilla, die es aber erst flexibel und vielseitig einsetzbar machen. Hinsichtlich dieser Vielseitigkeit kratze ich noch nicht einmal an der Oberfläche, so dass ich mir hier noch einiges an Kenntnissen aneignen kann und muss, um das System Hubzilla mit all seinen Verwendungsmöglichkeiten (z. B. CMS, Wiki, Cloudspeicher, Blog, Forum, etc.) vollständig zu durchdringen. #Fediverse


 
NOTE: "direct messages" visibility was changed in #Friendica and #Hubzilla. Now when you send a "private" DM from Mastodon to these two networks, message's visibility in those networks will be limited (yay!)

Please, remember, that #OStatus networks - GNU Social, postActiv, as well as any malicious servers - will still show your DMs from Mastodon as public. 🔓


 
Diffu is a Free Software allowing authors to publish all kinds of texts or articles and to aggregate the reactions they generate on social networks, especially through #ActivityPub such as #Mastodon, #PeerTube, #Pleroma, #PixelFed, #Funkwhale, #Hubzilla, #GNUSocial ...

Diffu is a kind of free and federated alternative to #Medium or other applications that are not always easy to install.

(english/deutsch)
Help wanted / Bitte um Hilfe

(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

(deutsch) Ich versuche eine Übersicht von Featuren der verschiedenen föderierten Plattformen zund deren verfügbare Kommunikationsprotokolle zu erstellen. Oder fügt eine Plattform (mit Quellen) hinzu, die hier nicht aufgeführt ist, die die entsprechenden Kommunikationsprotokolle "spricht". Wenn es dann fertig ist, stelle ich es natürlich allen zur Verfügung. https://github.com/hoergen/besser-der-podcast/tree/master/fediverse

Hubzilla on Silverhaze.EU gone


Already announced months ago (so that the users had enough time to migrate) I've now shutdown my #Hubzilla hub running on Silverhaze.EU:

server:~# a2dissite silverhaze.eu
Site silverhaze.eu disabled.
To activate the new configuration, you need to run:
  service apache2 reload
server:~# service apache2 reload
[ ok ] Reloading Apache httpd web server: apache2.
server:~#
postgres@server:~$ dropdb hubzilla
postgres@server:~$


Hubzilla was a nice thing to try out, but I don't think that I've gained much benefit of this, because I also have #Friendica node running for years and a #Mastodon instance running for some time now.
Hubzilla is a nice software for what it is: a complete set of web applications. When you only want to have some kind of social web for the #Fediverse it's maybe a little over the top and you might want to try out Pleroma instead or others.

For me it made no sense to support three different software stacks for federation in my (few) spare time and Hubzilla was some kind of doubling the same sort of task that #Friendica was always giving me for years. I felt more comfort with Friendica than with Hubzilla, although Hubzilla has some positive aspects for me as well:
- it runs on #PostgreSQL database. Although the PostgreSQL support could be better (some DB updates are reguarly failing and need a hands-on) this is a big plus for me, because I think PostgreSQL is the better database. MySQL seems to be a memory and disk I/O hog, but that's the only negative thing I can say about Friendica in comparisons to Hubzilla.
- I liked the concept of "Channels" in Hubzilla. In Friendica you need to create a second account with the same mailaddress, connect both accounts and "Manage" the other profile. I think the way how Hubzilla solves this kind of "multiple" accounts with different "Channels" is better and far easier to handle. I would love to see "Channels" as a feature in Friendica as well... :-)

In the end it was not a decision against Hubzilla, it was a decision for more spare time and less administration effort on the server. I believe, Hubzilla will still do well without my small hub (although it was once placed on place no 7 at https://the-federation.info/hubzilla ;-)).


 

#Friendica vs #Hubzilla vs #Mastodon


I've been running a #Friendica node for several years now. Some months ago I also started to run a #Hubzilla hub as well. Some days ago I also installed #Mastodon on a virtual machine, because there was so much hype about Mastodon in the last days due to some changes Twitter made in regards of 3rd party clients.

All of those social networks do have their own focus:

Friendica: basically can connect to all other social networks, which is quite nice because there exists historically two different worlds: the Federation (Diaspora, Socialhome) and the Fediverse (GnuSocial, Mastodon, postActiv, Pleroma). Only Friendica and Hubzilla can federate with both: Federation and Fediverse.
Friendicas look&feel appears sometimes a little bit outdated and old, but it works very well and reliable.

Hubzilla: is the second player in the field of connecting both federations, but has a different focus. It is more of one-size-fits-all approach. If you need a microblogging site, a wiki, a cloud service, a website, etc. then Hubzilla is the way to go. The look&feel is a little bit more modern, but there are some quirks that appears a little odd to me. A unique feature for Hubzilla seems to be the concept of "nomadic accounts": you can move to a different hub and take all your data with you. Read more about that in the Hubzilla documentation.

Mastodon: this aims to be a replacement for Twitter as a microblogging service. It looks nice and shiny, has a bunch of nice clients for smartphones and has the largest userbase by far (which is not that important because of federation).
But the web GUI is rather limited and weird, as far as I can tell after just some days.

Technically spoken these are the main differences:
- Friendica: MySQL/MariaDB, PHP on the server, Clients: some Android clients, no iOS client
- Hubzilla: MySQL/MariaDB or PostgreSQL, PHP on the server, Clients: don't know, didn't care so far.
- Mastodon: PostgreSQL, Ruby on the server, Clients: many iOS and Android clients available

I'm not that big Ruby fan and if I remember correctly the Ruby stuff turned me away from Diaspora years ago and made me switch to Friendica, because back then it was a pain to maintain Diaspora. Mastodon addresses this by offering Docker container for the ease of installation and maintenance. But as I'm no Docker fan either, I followed the guide to install Mastodon without Docker, which works so far as well (for the last 3 days ;-)).

So after all my Friendica node is still my favorit, because is just works and is reliable. Hubzilla has a different approach and offers a full set of webfeatures and nomadic accounts. The best I can say about Mastodon at this moment is: it runs on PostgreSQL and has nice clients on mobile devices.

Here are my instances:

Kleine Übersicht über meine #SocialMedia Instanzen laut https://the-federation.info :
- #Friendica auf https://nerdica.net/ : drittgrößter Node insgesamt nach active monthly user
- #Hubzilla auf https://silverhaze.eu/ auf Platz 7
- #Mastodon auf https://nerdculture.de/about nur 2 User


 
What's your opinion? Which federated network/software benefits most from the Facebook data disaster? How do you see the overall development? Which software will continue to have difficulties and which is on the upswing?
