You can find people to follow across the #ActivityPub #Fediverse by using the unofficial #Trunk directory:

https://communitywiki.org/trunk

It's organised by category and is strictly opt-in, so it only lists people who actively ask to be listed.

(Unfortunately #Diaspora doesn't use ActivityPub, but if you're seeing this on #Friendica you can use Trunk.)

 
Für meine Artikelreihe über die Kommunikation zwischen #friendica, #Hubzilla und #Diaspora möchte ich gern ein paar Überlegungen überprüfen.

Dafür brauche ich eure #Hilfe.

Nutzer von friendica oder Hubzilla bekommen (noch) keine Mitteilung, wenn ein Beitrag von ihnen weitergesagt wird. Natürlich kann es sein, dass sie den weitergesagten Beitrag in ihrem Stream sehen, wenn einer ihrer Kontakte weitergesagt hat.

Aber mir ist auf Diaspora oft anders gegangen, wenn ich eine #Frage hatte. Da wurde der Beitrag von Nutzern weitergesagt, die ich nicht kannte, weil sie sich für das Thema meiner Frage interessiert h... Show more...

 


The federated social network #Friendica has just released its new version 2019.01, which now includes full #ActivityPub support:

https://github.com/friendica/friendica/releases/tag/2019.01

Thanks to ActivityPub, it federates with Mastodon, PixelFed, Pleroma, PeerTube, NextCloud Social, Osada, Hubzilla etc.

Friendica also still has federation with #Diaspora, so if you're wanting to follow ActivityPub accounts without leaving your Diaspora friends, Friendica might be a good option.

Aha, so you're the true culprit behind spreading the #weeaboo virus on #Diaspora! xD

 
Ja müssten sie, da hast du recht. Allerdings habe ich die Voraussetzung (die zwar hier nicht ausgeschrieben steht) dass in einem Fediverse alle miteinander kommunizieren können.

Ja ok Diaspora "noch" nicht (ich gebe die Hoffnung nicht auf 🌻 auch wenn da noch nicht so der richtige Wille da ist). Ich finde aber #Diaspora wichtig für die verteilten sozialen Netzwerke und hoffe, dass sie die technischen Hürden nehmen werden.

Ebenso wie z.B. #Mastodon und Ähnliche ihr Kommentar-Verteilungsmodell nochmal bezüglich #Privatsphäre überdenken. Kommentator verteilt an alle anderen Kommentatoren versus z.B. Friendica/Diaspora Beitragersteller verteilt Kommentare an alle Kommentatoren.

Sharing Photos In Private Posts


When you share public posts, photos are transferred to users of other systems along with the text of the post. Occasionally a photo gets lost along the way, but that's no issue with authentication, but with federation.

Things change, when you share a private post with photos.

On Diaspora you can have EXIFs automatically removed from your photos in the settings section. You always upload a photo into a specific post. The photo is assigned a link and the photo is public. Yet the link to a photo contains a long string of random characters, so the photo is hard to find.

Friendica and Hubzilla have photo albums. So users can upload photos into posts or into photo albums. That means the access to a post and the access to photos are controlled independently. Friendica and Hubzilla also do not automatically remove EXIFs from photos. Depending on your settings EXIFs can reveal the time the photo was taken, the camera model and the location. EXIFs can be removed before uploading a photo.

Hi podmins!
Has anyone tried installing MariaDB in place of MySQL for Diaspora?
Does it improves anything (or might break something)?

Meine Erfahrungen mit mehreren Accounts


Vor ca. drei Monaten habe ich aus einen Account mehrere Accounts gemacht, um einige Defizite bei Diaspora (vor allen das Fehlen von Gruppen und Kanälen) ein wenig auszugleichen. bzw. damit jene die nicht so viele oder nur bestimmte Inhalte von mir wollten entgegen zu kommen. Nun wird es Zeit ein kurzes Resümee zu ziehen.

Leider hat sich gezeigt das der Aufwand sehr viel höher als bei einen Account ist und das ich mich auf bestimmte Accounts konzentriert habe, während andere weitgehend verweist sind. Darüber hinaus hat sich gezeigt das ich in den beiden aktivsten Accounts fast die selben Kontakte habe, sprich die Aufteilung macht auch aus diesem Gesichtspunkt wenig Sinn. Zumal so recht schnell einiges das man weitersagt durcheinander kommt. So klickt man wenn man auf den auf privates ausgerichteten Account ist auch mal bei politischen auf 'gefällt mir' oder sagt es weiter und auf dem auf politisches ausgerichteten Account klickt man bei Sachen die eher zu dem privaten Account pass...

Update on my new #OS: after comparing #Trisqual and #Debian #GNU / #Linux distros, I finally settled for Debian. They are both good -- my first choice was #Trisqual because it is #GNU approved, but after a discussion with my #Diaspora friends (thank you!) I realized that Debian ensures free data packages, unlike GNU. This is very important to me from the #freeculture point of view and for my love of #libre #games.

I also encountered fewer issues with Debian, the only one being with #Cinnamon desktop environment (eventually I chose #MATE). I have tested most of the important programs ( #Blender 2.8 beta, #GIMP 2.10, #Inkscape, #LMMS, #Xonotic, ... ), they all work very nicely. 3D acceleration works just as well and fast as in #Mint (with Trisquel it seemed slower).

 
Mal ne Frage:

Wenn man das, was man bei #Pleroma, #GNUSocial, #Mastodon doer #MissKey als "Microblogging" bezeichnet, wie bezeichnet man dann das, was man bei #Friendica, #Hubzilla oder #Diaspora macht? #Verb

Ist das dann "Makroblogging"?

 
I'm also a lot more active on #Mastodon but it's mainly because of 3 reasons:
* Content is more easily digestable with 500 characters
* My instance is specifically tailored for tech people so I see a lot more of my interests.
* The instance has a strict code of conduct so I don't have to see a lot of the crap I often see on Diaspora.

That being said, I've also come back into being more active on #Diaspora because of it's long format. People on Mastodon don't often click on a toot to see the full context of a thread. Stuff gets missed when I have something more substantial to say and I find that very irritating. I may go back to posting my long-form ideas, concepts, tutorials and rants here and just link them back to Mastodon with a brief message. I also might just start an actual blog, but that's a topic for another day.

I also wish that all federated networks used markdown,... Show more...

 
Right. So. I know I haven't been as active on here as I initially expected I would be, the reason being simply that Mastodon seemed easier to get into. I know, the types of social networking platforms they are differ, but as someone who hadn't been using much #socialnetworking at all for ages and to whom the very word "microblogging" had always seemed to have a romantic ring to it (not romance as in ドキドキ / dating / find-your-true-love romance, mind you—more the way different historical civilisations and people get romanticised, like the Vikings or Roman Empire), it's not surprising I found myself more there than here. However, it is the "micro" in #microblogging that brings me here at this particular moment. I am assuming that posting a link in #... Show more...

 
Sharing Across Platforms

If you are on Diaspora and you want to get some other user's public posts, you add the contact. If someone else wants to get your posts, she adds you as a contact. You will then be notified and can decide, if you add that contact as well or not. You can sort your contacts into aspects and share private post with some some aspects, but not others. It is not obvious, if the other user is on Diaspora, friendica or Hubzilla. The name of his server might be an indication, that's all. Once someone follows you, she remains on your contact list. There is no way for you to remove her. Over time your contact list therefore gets cluttered with contacts who have stopped using their accounts long ago.

If you want to get someone's public posts you add that user to your contacts. You get to see the profile of the user, if you like, the page with the public posts before you add the user, so you know which platform he uses. You will get to see a Diaspora user's public posts, after you add him. A Hubzilla user gets to decide which permissions you... Show more...

First of all a user has to create an account. If you don't have a recommendation already, it's difficult to decide where to sign up.

Should you consider signing up for an(other) account these two lists help, although the information isn't necessarily up to date or complete.

Diaspora: There are quite a few well maintained pods that accept registrations from anyone.

Friendica: There are some well maintained pods that accept registrations from anyone. Features vary a lot.

Hubzilla: There are few hubs that accept registrations from anyone. Many hubs are used by the owner with family and friends only.

Who you first "meet" after signing up depends on the server you have chosen. Diaspora and friendica have public streams that show all posts and comments that somehow ended up on that server. Hubzilla can have a public stream. My Hubzilla server doesn't.

About The Decentralized Network


Yesterday I signed up to friendica. I already have this account on Hubzilla and another one on Diaspora. I've just begun to explore friendica and thought it might be a good idea to take notes. Then I realized it may make sense to share these notes, because you probably all have contacts with users from the two other platforms and it may be interesting for you to see what they can and cannot do. Some things look confusing from the perspective of a another platform.

The most common odd thing Diaspora users will have seen is friendica users seemingly talking to themselves in the comments, when they are really replying to mastodon comments that are not federated to Diaspora.

I'm aware that there are differences between servers as well. Friendica and Hubzilla have lots of features the admin can install or not. Diaspora can be customized. From what I have seen pluspora looks quite different from the other Diaspora pods.

I can only write about my experience with the servers I have signed up to, of course. I'm merely a user, I... Show more...

 

Bye bye Diaspora\* - for now


Oder: "Drum prüfe, wer sich ewig bindet..." Wie wichtig die Auswahl des richtigen #pods sein kann, musste ich gestern auf die harte Tour erfahren. Ein komisches Gefühl hatte ich schon länger. Aber der Reihe nach.

Vor ein paar Monaten kam die Meldung zum bevorstehenden Sunsetting von Google+, ich wurde zum #gplusrefugee (auch wenn ich mich mit der Hashtag-Benennung nie recht anfreunden konnte. Anderes Thema). Also schaute ich auf https://podupti.me nach verfügbaren Pods mit offener Registrierung, denn #diaspora schien mir die Plattform, auf welcher sich die meisten alten Plusser-Kontakte zusammenfinden würden.

Nice work! Although tagging it with #diaspora is misleading.

'Social Loaf' (2019)

Latest graphite pencil drawing completed at the Blue Scortcher Bakery & Cafe during our sketch club gathering this morning in Astoria. Took about five or six hours total. Spent four hours in studio before finishing at bakery. Reference photo found in Pixabay and manipulated to suit. Used several different pencils but main pencil was the Pentel Graphgear 500 0.7mm mechanical pencil.

It is not so difficult to connect to contacts in #diaspora or #mastodon or #friendica starting from #hubzilla....

The important thing is to know certain aspects:
-you need to find a hub/site that has plugins enabled
-it is necessary to install the apps

Oha - Doch ganz schön unterschiedlich


Ich habe zu Testzwecken einen Account auf #Diaspora (Pluspora) eröffnet, weil ich wissen wollte wie das mit der #Formatierung bei Friendica dann drüben bei Diaspora aussieht.

Ja gut... Die Möglichkeiten der Formatierung sind bei D* dann doch ganz schön eingeschränkt im Vergleich zu #Friendica und manche Dinge werden dort einfach falsch formatiert oder gleich gar nicht erst angezeigt - bzw. dann nur als einfacher Link.

Das ist natürlich ein bisschen unschön. Auch hatte ich vor kurzem hier auf Friendica das Problem, dass mir scheinbar ein Link eines D* Posts nicht angezeigt wurde und der Beitrag für mich lediglich aus einem einzigen Hashtag bestand. Andererseits ist es natürlich toll, dass die Kommunikation zwischen den unterschiedlichen Plattformen überhaupt... Show more...

\#Frage zum Löschen eines #Diaspora Kontos


-- erst mal sorry, das hier ist Hubzilla, aber nachdem mein dspr.io #diaspora Podmin niemanden direkt benachrichtigt, dass dspr.io noch vor Februar gelöscht wird, gehe ich lieber auf Nummer sicher:

Also, wenn ich auf Konto schließen in den Einstellungen klicke, erhalte ich die Benachrichtigung:
Wir löschen alle deine Beiträge und dein Profil so schnell wie möglich. Deine Kommentare auf anderer Leute Beiträge werden weiterhin angezeigt, aber sie werden mit deiner diaspora* ID statt mit deinem Namen verknüpft.
==> Wer ist "wir"? Läuft das Löschen automatisch aber zeitversetzt oder muss ich mich darauf verlassen, dass der Podmin den Löschvorgang durchführt?

Wenn letzteres, dann habe ich mittlerweile kein Vertrauen mehr darin und müsste alle nicht-öffentlichen Beiträge einzeln und von Hand löschen, um auf Nummer Sicher zu gehen.

 
Hm, mein @Olaf Wendt #diaspora Account macht grad keine Freude. Ich konnte mich noch einloggen, das war's dann aber.
  • Ich sehe mein Bild neben dem "Beginne eine Unterhaltung", die Navigation links und sonst nichts.
  • Funktionieren tut in der Navigation ...nichts.
  • Die Google-Suche site:dspr.io zeigt zwar aktuelle Treffer (5 Stunden), die haben jedoch alle generischen Text
  • Mindestens 14 Stunden alte Beiträge mit Inhalt können nicht aufgerufen werden
  • dspr.io erscheint gar nicht mehr in der Liste bei podupti.me
Hilft wohl nur, meinem #podmin die Daumen zu drücken. Oder ihm die Ohren langzuziehen, wenn er Knall auf Fall den Pod vom Netz genommen haben sollte - eine Ankündigung hat mich jedenfalls nicht erreicht. Ein Grund mehr, besser eigene Server zu bewirtschaften.

#Socialhome

I was trying out Socialhome today. It is like browsing through #Diaspora with new eyes and much faster.

Socialhome uses the #Diaspora protocol but is visualized in a grid somewhat like Pinterest, great for having a quick look at profiles and browsing images.

Here's what my account looks like:





Apart from Diaspora, Socialhome also federates on servers from #Friendica and #Hubzilla platforms. It is developed by Diasporas own @Jason Robinson 🐍🍻 and well worth checking out 😀

Please be sure to use the #mywork hashtag


This is one of the ways people can control what they see. I am far more interested in things like art and music coming from creators than from shares, although if the shared thing has the hashtag, I will then see it. Accurate tagging is very important, in general.

Hashtags are the most effective discovery on D* and they're far better than the "suggested user" lists and "you may know" and "you may like" foisted on us by Google+

Up to now there was no arguments why I shouldn’t block offensive right wing users that will delete every criticism from comments they receive.
I guess it's because we all agree on that, he's on my list "since ever" .. actually he got some extra patience cause of the debian sign, but that didn't last long .. 😀
I could, as I did before, request the podmin of that user to delete the user on the #Diaspora pad, I guess that would be easy too.
I'm not sure to what extent this is helpful.
As an admin I guess I would be glad to become aware of people who don't fit into my TOS. At the same time we reach a lot of cultural and national legislative borders, the delicate mater of free speech and so on.

Update auf Diaspora* 0.7.9.0 erfolgreich abgeschlossen - update to diaspora* 0.7.9.0 successfull.

Notable Changes

  • The /public stream should be much faster now if you are using PostgreSQL. This is just the first step of many to come to improve the performance of all streams and tag pages.
  • The recent change to support full-resolution photos introduced issues with the thumbnails. This issue has been addressed.
  • The mobile-optimized interface now supports ignoring users.
