@stux To be fair though, I was using Diaspora long before I discovered Mastodon itself. They're both great Social Media Outlets though
@sp6ina Hubzilla with Activitypub is cool. I found Hubzilla to a good alternative to FB. I wrote a blog on it long time ago:
But I guess Activitypub clients are flawed. Can't see posts published before following somebody from Mastodon/Pleroma. The problem is not probably with Hubzilla because it happened with Masto/Pleroma users too.
Hubzilla to Hubzilla, no issues whatsoever.
@JuleLe for example: the thing that bothered me most was that on user level I cannot ban a whole instance and their crap. instead I had to block every single stupid user. another thing that I didn't like was the not autorefreshing single column display, that can be good on a mobile but not on a pc, not for me. third and last of my examples: the instance didn't allow me to delete my account, I told the admin and they said they "probably" can do it for me. @stux
Truth is, I've only tried Mastodon and PeerTube, and they are more complementary than alternatives. But it's a PeerTube instance I really need to be running.
Diaspora* has enormous potential, but it has never succeeded in attracting users. I still have an account on it but nothing happens anymore.
2 main things: you could have one account and use it as facebook and twitter at the same time & you can follow subjects besides people.
@livvydun didn't understand the first point. I agree with your second point, that feature is very useful. On Friendica as well, you can follow subjects/hashtags.
The only disadvantage of Diaspora in my opinion is that it does not support federation with ActivityPub.
@guido not possible at my end, maybe because of this:
@ponytail I doubt that it's because of the comment from 2018 you referred to. It was waiting on version 2.7. Mas.to is running on v3.4.4 if I see it correctly.
Discover & explore Mastodon with no ads and no surveillance. Publish anything you want on Mastodon: links, pictures, text, audio & video.
All on a platform that is community-owned and ad-free.
