What software do YOU like the most? :fediverse:

@stux To be fair though, I was using Diaspora long before I discovered Mastodon itself. They're both great Social Media Outlets though

@stux @Shredd_Tone is Diaspora a part of the fediverse?
Especially with the fact that they didn't implement ActivityPup.

@yura @stux I personally wouldn't know, but at the very least i would assume there would be a way to bridge them

@Shredd_Tone @stux it looks like there isn't.

I remember friendica supports diaspora's protocol but not mastodon nor pleroma vs misskey

@Shredd_Tone @yura Always welcome :cat_hug_triangle:​ its a great start for ppl who wanna join the Fedi also I think :blobcathearts:

@stux @yura It is, I wish that I've been introduced to this website before I got started in the Fediverse

@Shredd_Tone @yura :blobcatgiggle:​ This one includes it all at least and gives a fair chance to them all 💪

@stux @Shredd_Tone @yura It has been my entry point. And I voted although the only service I know (since today) is Mastodon.

@yura @stux hmm? I'm assuming that you can't get any access to Mastodon from Diaspora through Friendica without opening up a webpage then? It's almost a rhetorical question.

@Shredd_Tone @stux or any other activitypub-only service

Even link provided by stux show it

@yura @stux Yep, just got that. Mastodon seems to be the most social out of the bunch

@Shredd_Tone @stux I read but cannot prove that diaspora developers don't like ActivityPub and refuse to implement it.

Maybe @drq can tell more

@yura @drq @stux Yeah, that could still be an issue. It's something worth looking into, for sure

@yura @stux Hubzilla is intergrated to both Mastodon and Diaspora, so there's one way to connect to both of them if, that if it counts?

@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.

@stux Misskey looks more fun, but Pleroma is easier to run on cheap hardware and VPS plans

@stux I don't know about Misskey or Diaspora but Pleroma sucks imo 🤷🏻‍♂️

@ranx @stux Out of curiosity, if you were given the choice between Pleroma or Twitter, which one would you choose?

@Shredd_Tone @ranx Hahaha that’s an impossible choice! is still the Fedi♥️👌🏻

@JuleLe uhm... what about... having 1/100th the customization level mastodon has? At least the instance I registered on was like that 🤷🏻‍♂️ @stux

Thanks for your reply.
What exactly do you mean by customization?

@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.

Not sure if it is a play on words or an accurate statement :blobthinkingeyes:

@stux I like mastodon the most but tbh I think all the services and the fediverse as a whole is pretty awesome. :parrot_ception:

I've used #Hubzilla for some 3 years now, and I'm very happy with it. It enables me to talk to Diaspora*, Mastodon and many other platforms too.

@stux hometown also looks very nice but I haven’t had a chance to use it

@stux I would say Mastodon FE :mastodon: with Pleroma for the backend.
Pixelfed :pixelfed: and Peertube :peertube: are good too, just for different things.
Misskey kinda annoys me because it adds a lot of things only other people using Misskey can access.
Then there's Dispora that doesn't really support ActivityPub, and thus is left in it's own little bubble.

Mastodon, but it was a close call with pixelfed though
