OK that does it, I encourage anyone that wants to back up their fiction to head over to #honeyfeed, #wattpad, and #webnovel. I simply will not financially support #friendica or #hubzilla. They've gone way to far this time.

With #nomadicIdentity choosing a server is not a nightmare anymore!

Which server should an new user choose?


Eugen, the creator of Mastodon and admin of the biggest Mastodon server, mastodon.social, talks about the challenges new users might face when they want to register a Mastodon account. In fact these problems aren't limited to Mastodon.

Every user planning to create an account somewhere in the #Fediverse has to make several decisions first:

1. Which platform?

Do I want to settle on #Mastodon, #Diaspora, #Friendica, #Hubzilla, #Pleroma, #Socialhome or one of the more specialised choices? Given that most of these platforms differ in features, chances are high that I can make a choice based on technical facts. Maybe I already know some accounts I want to follow, which might narrow down the list of choices since not all networks are connected (most notably Mastodon and Diaspory can't see each other, so I can either use the one I need or one of the multi-protocol platforms). Even if I can't decide yet, I'll just register one account for every platform.

2. Which server?

Now this might be the harder question. Let's assume I picked a platform and now want to register my account. Which server should I chose and why? For some platforms there are servers that are specialised on single topics, so if, for example, I am an English speaking Open Source evangelist and want to use Mastodon, there is a server that is just right for me.

But what If I have several main interests? There is no special community for people who like knitting and fishing. Or, more likely, what if I can't even decide on my interests right now? See, I'm interested in many things, nothing special though, just want to talk about things. Where should I register?

Of course there are many servers in every network that aren't limited to any set of topics. So I'll just choose the one that most other people already chose, right?

Well, nearly. And that's exactly Eugen's problem here. As a user, you want to use a server that
  • is well maintained and is here to stay.
  • has some more users so its public timeline isn't empty.
But from a technical view it would be great if users would spread equally over all servers. So I'll just choose the one that has the least users, right?

Well, nearly. Maybe a compromise is the way to go. It could look like this:
  • Look for a server with more than one user.
  • See if it exists for more than, say, three months.
  • Look up the admins, see what they post, ask yourself if you like them.
  • Have a look at the server's public timeline.
These tools might help answering a newcomer's questions:
  • https://the-federation.info/
  • https://fediverse.party/
  • https://podupti.me/
But the main question stays: how do you explain this to a passer-by who just wants to quickly create a Fediverse account? Could a landing page featuring a "I'm feeling lucky" button that will automatically pick a random server help?- - - - - -

I tried setting it to 30 and did quite a few searches over the last 30 minutes. It timed out about 50% of the time with this setting, and always took ~1min when it did work. That was an improvement, of course... but I lowered it to 20, expecting only marginally better results. However, to my surprise now any search I do populates results in a second or two. I’m not repeating queries, to rule out caching, and I am searching common things that generate many pages of results. The same positive results when I click a page number too, it’s lightning fast (relatively speaking, from where we were! Ha).

I don’t understand this behavior, but I’m very happy with it! I was I was under the impression setting this to 20 would result in only 20 results appearing, at most, but apparently I haven’t fully grok’d it yet ha.

Thank you so much @Hypolite Petovan & @Tobias ! You guys are amazing! #friendica forever! :P
 

Friendica search is working very slow, even timing out with a 504

@Hypolite Petovan , maybe you could shed some light on how to better deal with the search feature... Almost every search I perform results in a 504 error, at least the first few times I try. I've increased the number of php fpm workers and lowered the nice value a bit (also for nginx workers), as my server does do quite a few tasks - but it's pretty finely tuned and resources are typically available (unless things get really hectic). Is there anything else I can do? I've tested under my lightest loads, even after freshly restarting php & nginx. Everything else on my site is fairly low latency. I see from the admin settings that the search does a global search in the background to cache it for later searches, but it seems like it doesn't work until I finally get it to not timeout with the 504...

Could this have more to do with the remote server than my own? Now, I know a 504 is a gateway timeout and means the remote server didn't give us everything we needed in time... but I'm not sure if it's because that server is going slow or if it's because the search is just trying to do too much (see php fpm slow log).

Does the global directory setting set the site that this search uses (currently set to: https://dir.friendica.social)? Is there an alternate directory you could recommend I use for searches?

I just thought maybe before I spend too much more time on this you (or someone from the team) might have some tips or insights 😀

No, as far as I know there are no bridges to FB or TW in #Friendica nor in d*.
 

This is great information for new users!

This is a particularity helpful read for G+ refugees or those fleeing the tyranny of Facebook - who may not have even been aware such networks existed! It's also just a well laid out, and easy to understand, description of the #fediverse .

A big thank you to @alysonsee (Fca), for writing the article that I have been meaning to write, and doing a better job at it than I likely would have (bonus points for the Venn diagram)! Thank you for creating and sharing this!

Also, thanks for sharing @Vladimir and updating me on the original author's identity. I'm definitely saving this to share with new users of my #friendica node when they ask such questions!

Decentralised & Free Social Networks

For those who are #newhere from other social networks, here’s a bit of handy vocabulary to #help you navigate this new social network universe:

- Protocol - An agreed format that enables software applications to communicate with (or “federate” with) each other. The two most heavily used protocols around here are Diaspora and ActivityPub. As an end user, you don’t have to care about the protocol you are using and you don’t ever see the “protocol” other than it enables or limits which users you can see.
Nevertheless, be aware that currently not all the platforms (see this word later) are fully compatible and limit you in the possibility of interactions.
Obrázek/fotka

- Platform - The software application that implements a protocol(s) for federating. The Diaspora platform implements the eponymously named Diaspora protocol. Mastodon, for example, implements the ActivityPub protocol. #Friendica implements both the Diaspora and the ActivityPub protocols.

- Server - pod - instance - node - The server(s) running a particular platform (software application). The variability in naming is due to the various origins of these platforms now working to intercommunicate.
For example, pluspora.com is one of the many pods running the Diaspora platform; mastodon.social is one of the many pods running the Mastodon platform; and libranet.de is one of the many pods running the Friendica platform.

- The Federation - The collective of servers running platforms that implement the Diaspora protocol. This includes all servers running Diaspora (the software application), Hubzilla, Friendica, or Socialhome. The users on *any* of these pods can connect to and interact with each other.

- The Fediverse - The collective of servers running platforms that implement the ActivityPub (and OStatus) protocols. This includes all servers running Mastodon, Pixelfed, Hubzilla, Friendica, Socialhome, or many, many others. The users on *any* of these servers can connect to and interact with each other.

- The Free Network - The collective of pods in The Federation and The Fediverse, combined.

Hope that helps and doesn’t make this seem more complicated than it actually is. The main difference from other social networks is that no single entity owns and runs a platform. On G+ or Facebook, you are locked into that platform/company to talk to other users. In the Free Network, one set of volunteers writes the software and puts it out there for free, and another set of volunteers downloads the software and runs it on their servers and invites us to have user accounts for free. (But you should definitely donate to help them with the costs, if you can.) If we, as users, decide we aren’t happy with our current experience, we can change platforms or pods and still keep all of our friends/connections. On Facebook, G+, Twitter, and the like, you are locked in; and if you want leave, you go cold turkey.

Glad you joined us here in the land of choice.

A help for the wave of newcomers to come

!Friendica Support

Dear All,
once upon a time I've been a G+ refugee and have been so happy to be kindly welcomed in Friendica and the instance which I now reside.
Yet I spent much time in finding my way and realise after I landed on d* that Friendica was more interesting for me. So I though after @alysonsee (Fca) that putting together a sort of welcome text encompassing some basic jargon would be a good thing.
Here is the text I'm planning to provide to any newcomer I see. Let me know how to improve it keeping in mind the following criteria :
1. public is non geek lambda user
2. quick so that the user has the impression he receives the keys in an A4 page max
3. allow me to favorise #Friendica for its flexibility and connexion with the Free Network.

Antwort:
- Indem wir auf die quelloffenen Technologien setzen, die die dezentrale Vernetzung ermöglichen, können wir die Würde und Unversehrtheit unserer Mitmenschen wahren.
- Die Daten unseres Mitmenschen sind somit geschützt und gelangen nur an die beabsichtigten Empfänger. Aus den Daten kann nicht ungefragt Kapital geschlagen werden.
- Dadurch handeln wir gemäss unserem Manifest ethisch korrekt. Die grossen Netzwerke (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest usw.) mit ihren Geschäftsmodellen hingegen erlauben dies nicht. Mehr dazu folgt bald in einem Artikel.

Question: Why is la bonne heure not on the big networks (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and so on)?


Answer:
- By using open source technologies which build the decentralized network, we are able to respect the human dignity and integrity of our fellow human beings
- The data of our fellow human beings are thus protected and reach only the intended recipients. It's not possible to capitalize their data
- Thus, we're able to act on a sound ethical basis as stated in our manifesto. The big networks (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest) with their business models don't allow us to do so. Read more about this in an article which we will publish soon here.

For those who are #newhere from other social networks, here’s a bit of handy vocabulary to help you navigate this new social network universe:

- Protocol - An agreed format that enables software applications to communicate with (or “federate” with) each other. The two most heavily used protocols around here are Diaspora and ActivityPub. As an end user, you don’t have to care about the protocol you are using and you don’t ever see the “protocol” other than it enables or limits which users you can see.

- Platform - The software application that implements a protocol(s) for federating. The Diaspora platform implements the eponymously named Diaspora protocol. Mastodon, for example, implements the ActivityPub protocol. Friendica implements both the Diaspora and the ActivityPub protocols.

- Pod - The server(s) running a particular platform (software application). Also known as an “instance” or a “node”. For example, pluspora.com is one of the many pods running the Diaspora platform; mastodon.social is one of the many pods running the Mastodon platform; and libranet.de is one of the many pods running the Friendica platform.

- The Federation - The collective of pods running platforms that implement the Diaspora protocol. This includes all pods running Diaspora (the software application), Hubzilla, Friendica, or Socialhome. The users on *any* of these pods can connect to and interact with each other.

- The Fediverse - The collective of pods running platforms that implement the ActivityPub (and OStatus) protocols. This includes all pods running Mastodon, Pixelfed, Hubzilla, Friendica, Socialhome, or many, many others. The users on *any* of these pods can connect to and interact with each other.

- The Free Network - The collective of pods in The Federation and The Fediverse, combined.

Hope that helps and doesn’t make this seem more complicated than it actually is. The main difference from other social networks is that no single entity owns and runs a platform. On G+ or Facebook, you are locked into that platform/company to talk to other users. In the Free Network, one set of volunteers writes the software and puts it out there for free, and another set of volunteers downloads the software and runs it on their servers and invites us to have user accounts for free. (But you should definitely donate to help them with the costs, if you can.) If we, as users, decide we aren’t happy with our current experience, we can change platforms or pods and still keep all of our friends/connections. On Facebook, G+, Twitter, and the like, you are locked in; and if you want leave, you go cold turkey.

Glad you joined us here in the land of choice.

G+ style Multi-Column Streams in diaspora, Tumblr, Mastodon, Hubzilla, Friendica, YouMe, and MeWe.

I’ve put together CSS styles which provide multi-column Streams in various social media platforms. This has a huge effect on browsing speed. To use them, you:

1) Download Stylus plugin (Chrome, Firefox or Opera): https://add0n.com/stylus.html

2) Install desired Multi-Column style from here: https://userstyles.org/users/773238

3) Modify the domain it acts on if you're using a different pod

Enjoy!

= = = = = ADDITIONAL NOTES = = = = =

diaspora is the most refined, with a lot of extra features like multicolumn comments, autoexpand all posts, font size customization, and other UI enhancements

Tumblr is also solid; it keeps the standard width of Tumblr posts and is responsive to width (2 or 3 columns)

Mastodon is maybe 95% good, depending on how you prefer to use Mastodon.

Hubzilla is maybe 80% good. Because of the right sidebar, this is limited to two columns by default.

Friendica is maybe 60% good. There's some sort of vertical scrolling bug when the left sidebar is too tall. If the left sidebar is short enough to fit on screen, all is good. But if the left sidebar is too tall, then scrolling gets stuck when you're too near the bottom of the content.

YouMe is maybe 40% good. It works, but it also affects single post view. And YouMe itself is really buggy right now (it only just launched). But the good news is that my userstyle can be used to produce single column (it's normally 2 column, which not everybody likes).

MeWe is maybe 50% good. As with Hubzilla, the right sidebar limits available space. So, it only provides 2 columns by default. And due to the complexity of MeWe, it only applies to the home and Groups pages - so, only single column view if you go to a single group. But as far as I've noticed, it's not buggy.

Of these platforms, the only ones I use significantly are diaspora, Tumblr, and Mastodon. Those will be the best supported, naturally.

Working on #Friendica really expanded my international horizons, I now know how to say "Guys with big schlongs" in Italian, and you can learn it too!
#internationalization #i18n #schlong
 

Just a little 'Thank You'...

@Hypolite Petovan , you make me proud and quite happy that I chose Friendica for my #distributed / #federated social platform! My sincerest gratitude to you for what you've given to the community, and your (seemingly) endless patience to help others. What a great dev and a fine human being! You make #Friendica one of the best open-source software experiences out there.

I hope to eventually be able to contribute something real to the project as well, but for now I just wanted to say 'thank you'!

Btw, I'm sure there are a lot of other people that deserve a huge thanks for Friendica, and I'm grateful to them as well - but @Hypolite Petovan is the person I have direct experience with, and has helped me out several times since I started running my Friendica instance. I certainly don't mean to minimize anyone else, though, and I realize OSS is a team effort! So thanks to everyone involved!
 

Bots im Fediversum

Ich bin zu einer ziemlich großen Bot-Schleuder im Fediversum geworden.

Angefangen hat es damit, dass ich auf meinem Friendica-Server Bot-User angelegt habe, denn bei Friendica kann man viele Inputs direkt "als eigene Beiträge" spiegeln. Daher kommen "ruhrpott", "urknall", "spon", "history" und so weiter (jeweils @friendica.produnis.de)
Auch kann man per ITTT-Addon viele weitere Inputs bedienen ("history" "minkorrekt" "s04").


Irgendwann habe ich angefangen, eigene kleine Bots zu programmieren, die Content ins Fediversum schaufeln.

Der erste war der Picture-Bot, welcher von einem Bildverzeichnis aus Bilder nach Friendica postet ("trains", "nsfw").
Den Quellcode gibt es hier:
https://github.com/produnis/pic2fediverse

Irgendwann war dann der damalige fefebot kaputt/offline, und ich hab schließlich den Quellcode geforked und den Bot neu aufgesetzt @Fefebot
Den Fork findet hier hier:
https://github.com/produnis/fefebot


Tjoa, es gibt noch zahlreiche weitere Bots,

- Tootbot spiegelt Tweets zu Mastodon, https://github.com/cquest/tootbot Damit hab ich den GretaThunbergBot aufgesetzt @Greta Thunberg

- Twitter2Diaspora spiegelt Tweets zu Diaspora, https://github.com/produnis/twitter2diaspora

- Youtoot spiegelt einen Youtube-Chanel zu Mastodon, https://github.com/produnis/youtoot zB @FilmSelect Trailer

- HistoryHerold postet passend zum Datum hinterlegte Text- und Bilddateien, https://github.com/produnis/HistoryHerold . Den hab ich für meine Schalke-Bots programmiert, @Schalker Mythos @Schalker Mythos

Jajaja, die ganzen Bots, die einen mögen's, die anderen nicht.
Vielleicht hat aber irgendjemand grade etwas passendes gefunden...

Question about Twitter Connector: I replied on this post:
https://squeet.me/display/962c3e10-105c-8626-fa35-96b176118741
Friendica post got mirrored to Twitter here:
https://twitter.com/MannheimBeauty/status/1105034322443153408
Following the link in the Tweet back to Friendica throws a 404 when opening link and not being logged into friendica. This is reproducible.

To me this feels like a bug, as the friendica post is public and to my knowledge unrestricted. Does anybody have an idea, why this is not working? Is it a known problem?

Увидел, что личные сообщения во #Friendica не шифруются, в отличие от #Hubzilla.
А это повод, если прижмут, выдать переписку.
Непонятно пока как и чем хабзилла шифрует, но разберусь.

Salution depuis #Friendica dans le Fediverse : Image/Photo
 
Installing a sensor in the server room seemed like a good idea at the time... Now reading at the actual output, I'm not so sure any more.

Oh dear #Fediverse , today I saw people complaining that a service is using #Mastodon instead of #Friendica or #Pleroma or $whatever , because that's way better.

And this is why #Linux or #XMPP or $FLOSS never succeeded, because we don't even like our own kind.
 
#RPG Folks: There's a Friendica server at https://rpgtable.top, part of the Fediverse, designed originally as a refuge for the G+ rolegaming community and expanding/revising its role in the larger community as people join and participate. I'm one of the admins. Check out our instance! #ttrpg #friendica #tabletop_rpg #gaming #games
 
I was pleasantly surprised at the anti-climatic and uneventful outcome of your friend's platform transition! That is indeed great!

As someone who has only been maintaining a #Friendica instance for a few days now I am curious; did your friend cite any reasons for their move to #Mastadon? Was his instance for personal use, or open publicly? I imagine it would take some pretty major problems (with the former) or benefits (to the latter) to justify transitioning a public node! ...But like I said, I'm new to this and just trying to get a broader understanding of what people are doing with these amazing open-source platforms, and what sorts of general consensus exists around them. Thanks for sharing this!
 
#Fediverse tale: a #Friendica contact of mine announced he moved to #Mastodon, a different social media platform. I can still follow him, so the move has been seamless for me.

That’s it. That’s great. Join the Fediverse.
 

Which websites featured on the Federation have the worst privacy?


My last post highlighted how ticking the OEmbed box to add a website picture to a post can compromise Federation users if it contains a tracker.

[:]




[:]

I also mentioned tools, like Disconnect, we could use to detect websites which track their users. In this post I reveal some of the most popular reference websites on the Federation with low privacy and high tracking rates.

I believe Federation users should consider not embedding, or at least warning their readers about the surveillance techniques carried out by these sites.

A Princeton University study identified almost a million websites that track their users. Here are just 5 examples of websites whose stories are commonly quoted on the Federation:

WIRED


Wired is a popular website referenced on the Federation by many users because it publishes great tech-based stories. But how private is it?
Although it offers an ‘ad-free’ version for subscribers, normal visitors are ruthlessly fleeced for their data.

WIRED has embed deals (agreements to embed tracking codes into their pages for money or gain) with a staggering 171 third parties including Google, Amazon, Facebook, Vogue, GQ, Golf Digest, Bonappetit and Vanity Fair.




Some tracking beacons embedded on WIRED and captured by Ublock Origin

[:]

151 of these third parties are known tracking or advertising companies like Google, Amazon, Facebook, Turn, Add This, Scorecard Research, Adobe, Twitter Analytics, Typekit, Criteo and Quantserve. Aggressive trackers like Google Tag Manager (GTM), Add This and Turn are present here.

Below is a screengrab of the many scripts NoScript has blocked from the WIRED website, the 33 scripts, gifs and beacons blocked by Ublock Origin and a couple by Disconnect.




[:]

WIRED sets 25 short-term and 28 long-term cookies itself, while allowing its third party partners (including 69 tracking companies) to set 26 short-term and 133 long-term cookies.

It uses Google Analytics without the anonymization feature enabled, so user details are sent to Google servers.

All WIRED servers are based in the US so GDPR privacy rules can be ignored.

Websites loading this many scripts/cookies are usually blacklisted by most users, not least because they drain a device’s battery.

WIRED claims that subscribing with them will mean an ad free experience, but I find it hard to believe that a subscription to WIRED will suddenly load a clean page without a single tracker retrieving data. But then I am not a WIRED subscriber. Please comment if you are and have no trackers.

[:]

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

FOSSPOST


Seen by some as a safe pro-privacy resource celebrating Free and Open Source Software, FOSSPOST lets its users down by digitally fingerprinting their devices and loading 19 trackers into a browser.

[:]




[:]
FOSSPOST has embed deals with 27 third parties, making its embed renting in the ‘low’ category, including Google, Amazon, Creative Commons and WordPress.

13 of these are known tracking or advertising companies like Google, Amazon, Mailerlite, One Signal and the data-hungry caterpillar that is WordPress.

FOSSPOST sets 2 short-term and 2 long-term cookies itself while allowing its third party partners (including 3 tracking companies) to set 4 long-term cookies.

It uses Google Analytics without the anonymization feature so user details are sent to Google servers. All FOSSPOST servers are based in the US so GDPR privacy rules can be ignored.

[:]
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

TECHCRUNCH


Acquired by Yahoo’s parent company, Oath (a company that includes AOL), under the Verizon umbrella, in 2010, this is a popular reference source for researchers and Federation users.

Historically, Yahoo deserves some kudos as they were one of the few big tech companies that objected to sharing their users’ details with the PRISM
spy program.

The Bush administration threatened them with $250k a day fines until they complied. Verizon bought them in 2017. Yahoo suffered the largest data breach in history in 2018.

The link to this NYT story is not embedded (consider blocking the GTM tracker on the site)

https://www.nytimes.com/2014/09/12/technology/documents-unsealed-in-yahoos-case-against-us-data-requests.html

TECHCRUNCH.com fingerprints the user’s device and dumps 2-7 Yahoo trackers in their browser, depending on the page loaded.

[:]




[:]

TECHCRUNCH has embed deals with 27 third parties, including Google, Facebook, Yahoo and WordPress.
15 of these are known tracking or advertising companies like Google, Facebook, Yahoo, WordPress, Atwola, Typekit, AOL and Scorecard Research.

TECHCRUNCH sets 4 short-term and 5 long-term cookies itself while allowing its third party partners (including 4 tracking companies) to set 1 short-term and 7 long-term cookies.

It uses Google Analytics but interestingly enables the anonymization feature so some user details are not sent to Google servers.

All servers are based in the US so forget about GDPR privacy rules.

[:]

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

THE REGISTER .co.uk


Although a great resource with well-written and groundbreaking stories, it isn’t as private as I’d hoped.

There is no obvious digital fingerprinting but it seems to have gathered more Google syndication in the last couple of years, (9 of its 16 embed deals are with the Big G). 12 known tracking or advertising companies like Google, Admedo and the Amp Project gather data.

THE REGISTER sets 3 short-term and 4 long-term cookies itself while allowing its third party partners (including 2 tracking companies) to set 7 long-term cookies.

It uses Google Analytics without enabling the anonymization feature so user details are sent to Google servers. Although THE REGISTER’s domain is in the UK, both its data and email servers are based in the US so GDPR privacy rules could be compromised here, though I am not a lawyer.

[:]
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

The Guardian .com


I’ve been sitting on this for a few years now but it’s about time I blew the whistle.

I first noticed the Guardian newspaper’s website was digitally fingerprinting its users’ devices when they published an article on, um, Canvas Fingerprinting.

That page has been removed since, but they still continued doing it, long before Facebook, though not before Google.

[:]




[:]

I’ve kept quiet about this surveillance because I admire the paper for its incredible journalism, especially exclusives like the Snowdon revelations, and its general championing of freedom issues across many sectors of society. But the hypocrisy has started to wear me down.

[:]



Some tracking items & widgets embedded on Guardian .com and captured by Ublock Origin

The Guardian has embed deals with a privacy-sapping 142 third parties, including Google, Amazon, Bing, Twitter, and, despite being one of its main critics, Facebook. 132 of these third party partners are known tracking or advertising companies like Google, Amazon, Facebook, Turn, AddThis, Scorecard Research, Blue Kai, Twitter Analytics, Rubicon, Criteo and Quantserve.

Some of the most aggressive trackers like GTM, AddThis and Turn are present here.

The Guardian also sets 3 short-term and 5 long-term cookies itself, while allowing its third party partners (including 51 tracking companies) to set 10 short-term and 131 long-term cookies.

Yes, we NEED the Guardian’s continued existence, but castigating Facebook et al while allowing them to track its users doesn’t sit well with me.

The website uses Google Analytics but at least enables the anonymization feature, so some user details are not sent to Google servers.

Although The Guardian’s data servers are in Germany, their email servers are based in the US so GDPR privacy rules could be compromised here, though, again, I am not a lawyer.

In conclusion, I’ve given just 5 examples of popular sites Federation users quote in their posts.

I am NOT advocating a boycott of these sites but politely suggest we don’t OEmbed them, just feature a hyperlink and give readers the heads-up about these privacy concerns.

Alternatively, look for other sources featuring the same story. It’s also worth highlighting which websites do NOT add a tracker when we OEmbed a story, or have a low level of surveillance. Please promote those guys.

Some statistics about contacts on libranet.de

Hello,
I was wondering how many feeds are imported on the node. So I did some queries on the contact table.

Number of total contacts per network type:

Network protocols:
Diaspora (dspr) 56880
ActivityPub (apub) 29448
OStatus (stat) 23568
Friendica (dfrn) 8181
RSS/Atom (feed) 1606
E-Mail (mail) 35

Network connectors:
Twitter (twit) 232867
Pump.io (pump) 158
StatusNet (stac) 1

I'm really surprised about the huge number of Twitter contacts. And I'm also surprised about the pretty low number of feed contacts. I expected a lot more than that. And I didn't expect that someone is really using the email protocol support. Interesting.

#libranet #friendica #statistics @Libranet Support

Persönliche Föderationsstatistik

So sieht es bei mir aus:
Momentan kennt dieser Knoten 4.273 Knoten mit insgesamt 2.120.886 registrierten Nutzern, die die folgenden Plattformen verwenden:

  • #Friendica (379/4.024) - 10 Nutzer pro Instanz
  • #diaspora (304/628.472) - 2.067 Nutzer pro Instanz
  • #red (7/64) - 9 Nutzer pro Instanz
  • #hubzilla (264/7.687) - 3 Nutzer pro Instanz
  • #GNU Social (136/6.425) - 47 Nutzer pro Instanz
  • #StatusNet (9/174) - 19 Nutzer pro Instanz
  • #Mastodon (2.722/1.451.747) - 901 Nutzer pro Instanz
  • #pleroma (446/21.092) - 47 Nutzer pro Instanz
  • #socialhome (4/973) - 243 Nutzer pro Instanz
  • #ganggo (2/228) - 114 Nutzer pro Instanz


Bei Diaspora scheint es also am kompliziertesten zu sein, eine eigene Instanz zu betreiben (oder die Nutzer vertrauen den Betreibern am meisten 😉 ) und bei Hubzilla ist es am einfachsten (oder die Nutzer sind am mistrauischsten 😉 ).

Da ich mal wissen wollte, wie sich das über die Zeit entwickelt, habe ich mir das von Zeit zu Zeit mal notiert und so sieht es dan aus:

  • 8. Januar : 4.253 / 2.349.200 -> Maximale Anzahl an Nutzern
  • 9. Januar : 4.241 / 2.345.669
  • 10. Januar : 4.231 / 2.330.945
  • 11. Januar : 4.226 / 2.334.113
  • 13. Januar : 4.229 / 2.039.934
  • 14. Januar : 4.259 / 2.054.374
  • 15. Januar : 4.252 / 2.059.012
  • 16. Januar : 4.246 / 2.007.713
  • 27. Januar : 4.215 / 2.025.384
  • 7. Februar: 4.208 / 2.124.247
  • 10. Februar: 4.245 / 2.131.417
  • 23. Februar: 4.267 / 1.769.948
  • 27. Februar: 4.243 / 2.181.948
  • 3. März: 4.273 / 2.120.880 -> Maximale Anzahl an Instanzen


Die Anzahl der Instanz korreliert also nicht unbedingt mit der Anzahl der Nutzer, auch interessant.

Reporting, Blocking instances/pods, etc.

So, what's the overall status of tools to deal with bad people here in #Friendica?

You can block individual profiles, which is good, but can we, the users, have an option to block entire instances like you can in #Mastodon? For example, I'd _really_ like to block the share.naturalnews.com pod, since it's apparently a hub for conspiracy theorists and bigots. Also, is there anything that's close to a report feature? How do I report posts and profiles? There are literal nazis jerking it to swatikas and I see nowhere to report it so that it gets removed and no one else has to deal with it.

I understand that Friendica is free-software and entirely run by volunteers, so it's fine if these features are not here _yet_, but on the other hand, the lack of these features might be intentional, which, if true, really sucks.

Acá tienen a uno que pretende hacer con los pods independientes lo mismo que hace EE.UU. con los países soberanos


Bild/Foto
https://diaspora.com.ar/posts/2756123

Un tal canek (canek@share.naturalnews.com ) del pod share.naturalnews.com, se las da, al igual que EE.UU, de defensor de la "Libertad de expresión" y para eso no se le ocurre mejor idea que hacer una lista negra de lo que llama "Cuck pods" llamando a no registrarse en ellos. Para eso usa un falso criterio de "libertad de expresión" que básicamente consiste en decir y hacer cualquier cosa mientras los podmins mantienen una postura pasiva y permisiva, limitándose solo a la administración técnica del pod que corren.

Nuestro pod fue incluído en su lista negra con la siguiente leyenda que pasaré a responder a continuación. Otros pods incluídos en la lista son pod.disroot.org, diasp.org, nerdpol.ch, pod.geraspora.de. Muchos de los usuarios bloqueados en esos pods son trolls o fascistas cuyas cuentas fueron borradas.
http://diaspora.com.ar

Another cuck pod. This one acts as a national pod calling itself “Diaspora Argentina” yet deletes the accounts of nationalists and right-wingers without warning and has even been known to make public their personal information. (https://diaspora.com.ar/posts/846253) (https://diasp.org/posts/9153227)

El crimen que cometimos según ellos, ofendiendo su criterio de "libertad", es el de haber "borrado cuentas de nacionalistas derechistas (fascistas) sin aviso y haber hecho pública su información personal". Sin embargo, si bien borramos varias cuentas de fascistas, solo en un caso hicimos público su mail, por el carácter violento y pro-genocida de un usuario que era defensor de la dictadura militar argentina, que actuaba como troll y atacaba las publicaciones de personas y organizaciones que defendìan los Derechos Humanos. De hecho sí fue advertido pero continuó con su hostigamiento, no dándonos más remedio que actuar en su contra.
Estos cabeza hueca-liberales condenan con listas negras a quienes actuamos contra fascistas pero nada dicen de estos fascistas cuando atacan a nuestros usuarios y reivindican el asesinato y desaparición de personas.

Su idea de "libertad" parece no aplicarse cuando se trata de proteger a nuestros usuarios y nuestro pod. Es la idea más tonta de libertad :"Sos libre de publicar lo que quieras". No importa ahí la responsabilidad, ni si atacás a alguien, ni importa tampoco la "libertad" de los administradores de permitir o no conductas destructivas dentro del pod. Somos admins y por eso somos unos forros que no tenemos que existir, que no tenemos que "meter mano". Parece como si tuviéramos que ser castigados por tener servidores, por que no sea todo p2p en Internet. No tiene que importar nuestro criterio porque no deberíamos ni existir. Tenemos que dejar que todo fluya frente a nuestros ojos y que cualquiera haga lo que quiera mientras nosotros ponemos la infraestructura, el trabajo, pagamos la luz y mantenemos el server. Y mientras muchos usuarios descansan cómodamente sobre nuestro trabajo para después criticarnos, cuando podrían ellos mismos abrirse su propio pod.

Es que, como dice este tal Canek, "Nosotros nos llamamos a nosotros mismos Diaspora* Argentina". Claro. No es porque seamos el único pod del país, ni el primero. Es porque le robamos a los 40 millones de habitantes la posibilidad de abrirse su propio pod. Hasta el nombre nos critican...
Estoy seguro que a los pods que están llenos de pornografía y pedofilia no los critican ¡No vi ninguno en esa lista! y miren que está lleno de pods así en Diaspora. Esos no son "Cuck pods"...

Entonces, según la idea de estos personajes, si actuamos contra un defensor del genocidio, dejamos de ser un pod libre. ¡Qué idea lineal y estúpida de entender la libertad!
Sin embargo, como en todo grupo social, tenemos nuestras condiciones y "acuerdos de convivencia", no compatibles con lo que hizo aquel sujeto en nuestro pod. Aquella forma de operar por parte de un usuario (reivindicación del genocidio, ataque a usuarios, etc), como lo especifican nuestros tèrminos de uso, es contrario al acuerdo que él suscribió y por ende, lo hace perder los derechos que de él se desprenden, así como habilita a los podmins a tomar acciones en su contra.
Esto está contemplado en los puntos 4 y 7 de nuestros términos de uso:

"4) (...) En Diaspora* Argentina consideramos al respeto y la camaradería como valores fundamentales a la hora de llevar adelante un debate. Por lo cual no estarán permitidos los usuarios troll, ni las publicaciones o comentarios que apunten a molestar, ofender o difamar a otros usuarios sin ningún tipo de motivo o argumento valedero. Diaspora* Argentina podría no tolerar la publicación de cualquier contenido que viole estos términos y definiciones, por lo cual los podmins tendrán el derecho de eliminar el contenido en cuestión, llamar la atención y/o tomar medidas contra el usuario que lo haya publicado."

"7) Incumplimiento de los Términos. El usuario que violara o incumpliera los Términos de uso, perderá las garantías y derechos que se desprenden de los mismos. Diaspora* Argentina entiende que ese usuario rompe su compromiso de uso del pod, establecido en estos Términos, habilitando a los administradores a tomar medidas de suspensión o eliminación sobre la cuenta del usuario. "

Las personas que reivindican el genocidio, la pedoficia, la trata de personas, la violencia de género, las violaciones, el racismo, etc, son para nosotros criminales que deben ser escrachados y llevados a la justicia. Nosotros no tenemos por qué permitir que ellos utilicen nuestra plataforma para descargar su odio y mucho menos los protegeremos mientras hacen eso. Por el contrario, los escracharemos como lo hicimos. Mal que les pese a estos "Freedom kiddies", las acciones llevadas a cabo por nosotros fueron mínimas en comparación a lo que este tipo de gente se merece.

Pero se malentiende el concepto de libertad. Para estos muchachitos pequebú occidentales y tecnicistas, tomar acciones contra un fascista es ir en contra de la libertad. Menudo concepto de libertad el de tolerar la intolerancia y la violencia política. Algo tán estúpido como decir: "Somos libres, entonces acá todos hacen lo que quieren, entonces admitimos a los que pretenden coartarle la libertad a la sociedad. Cómo se lo vamos a prohibir, si les prohibimos entonces no somos libres". Entonces, bajo este razonamiento, un pod libre es aquel que admite el fascismo, la divulgación de pedofilia, la violencia hacia las mujeres, etc.
Este concepto "liberal" de libertad me recuerda a Richard Stallman diciendo que él no tendría problemas en que un gobierno utilice Software Libre para tirar misiles. Y me recuerda a los partidos fascistas presentándose a elecciones y siendo admitidos como una opción más de la democracia.

A ver, niños amantes de "lo libre". La libertad en la sociedad es un poco más ámplia y compleja que "Free beer" o "Share with friends". Libertad implica responsabilidades a nivel social.

Un derechista nacionalista (un fascista) como el que uds nos señalan no debe ser admitido en un pod si su admin pretende defender la libertad de sus usuarios o la democracia del pod. Libertad no incluye la "libertad de atacar a otros".

Culpa de su "permisividad" Diaspora está llena de pedófilos y fachos. Culpa de esa idea de libertad abstracta y no comprometida con nada, el Software Libre es aprovechado por corporaciones para espiar a los usuarios y cometer atrocidades. Maduren un poco, y no se suban al caballito de "Nosotros defendemos lo libre" si realmente no entienden nada.

Ustedes me recuerdan al gobierno de los Estados Unidos. Si son yanquis puedo comprender ese comportamiento. Tal vez imiten a "sus jefes". Estados Unidos se las da de ser el "Gendarme del mundo" y el "Defensor de los Derechos Humanos y la libertad". Pero ocuren las peores cosas en los países que están bajo su dominio y tildan de "dictadores" a aquellos gobernantes que no siguen su lìnea, que plantean políticas independientes. Ellos invaden y toman injerencia sobre las políticas de los países que tildan de "dictadores y/o terroristas". Todo por intereses propios. Para adueñarse de sus recursos y su territorio. Los atacan, les meten sanciones, los ponen en listas negras como hacen ustedes y luego se meten en su política interna, les dicen lo que tienen que hacer (como implícitamente hacen ustedes también). Si no aceptan tienen que prepararse para la guerra. Menos mal que nosotros somos pods y no países.

Canek, ¿quién te dió el tìtulo de juez e interventor de todos los pods de Diaspora* del mundo?. ¿Qué autoridad moral pensás que tenés para hacerlo? Quién sos vos para decirme a mi cómo debo actuar en la administración de mi pod? ¿Acaso colaboraste en algo?

Alguien en tus comentarios dijo que debíamos hacer un pod de comunistas y meternos todos ahí. Como un gheto. Linda idea tienen ustedes de federación y de intercambio. Se las dan de libres y son de los más censuradores que existen. Te propongo lo contrario. Ya que amás tanto la "libertad de expresión" de los derechosos y fascistas, montate tu propio pod, llenalo de fascistas y pedófilos, y dejame de joder...
Te aseguro que los usuarios de Diaspora a nivel general vamos a estar más felices si los fascistas dejan de molestarnos.

Tu listita negra no tiene ningún efecto en Diaspora, Schindler.

How can Federation users post more safely?


You know how it goes. We find a great story online and we want to share it with our supporters or feature it in our feed with appropriate hashtags for maximum reach.

But do we check the website featuring the story for privacy before we post?

When we embed a link by selecting the OEmbed box (often ticked by default) this displays an image or video on our post from the website we’ve featured.




They may look cool, but these images can contain beacons or other trackers. Embedded trackers also load into the browsers of any user who scrolls down the public feeds.

Should we ensure the website is safe before linking to it?


Actually some do. Posts that don’t feature a website’s images (with the OEmbed box unchecked as below) can actually protect Federation users from a serious amount of surveillance.

Some thoughtful users actually reproduce the article’s main points in their post, to protect their readers from visiting the site itself. They usually supply a link to the original content if one wants more detail and perhaps is protected with tracker blockers. So how do we know a site we recommend is safe?

Here are some privacy tips:


• Consider checking the page’s security/privacy before linking to it.

Using Tor, or a beefed-up Firefox fork or version (for detecting digital fingerprinting), and/or Disconnect, NoScript or Ublock Origin add-ons to reveal a multitude of trackers.




[:]

• There is usually more than one website featuring the same story. Consider picking the website with the least trackers and digital fingerprinting.

• Issue a warning in your post about any of the site’s surveillance methods and privacy issues you’ve detected.

• Embedding a picture/video could also make users vulnerable. Consider unchecking the OEmbed box.




In the next post I’ll give examples of a number of websites with low privacy and excessive trackers, commonly featured in the public feeds.
