Are you a user of Diaspora* and also Friendica. What is the difference?

#Friendica #diaspora #newhere
 
Hey everyone, I’m #newhere.
Well, here I am. I used my old G+ name and avatar so any one that knows me from the old universe add me or what ever you do here.
I'm gonna need so advice on how this place operates also.
 
Hey everyone, I’m #newhere. I’m interested in #arts, #music, and #photo.

New to Friendica


Redoing my intro post after some advice from @utzer:

Hi folks, I decided to join Friendica since it sounded interesting & I believe redecentralizing the internet is the way forward. I'm also on Mastodon & Scuttlebutt. I creatively write & LOVE to talk about the social implications of technology. I look forward to seeing what's out here.

Hey everyone, I’m #newhere. I’m interested in #art, #coaching, #googleplus, #literature, #poetry, #quotes and oodles of other stuff. I signed up over here because, as you all know, Google+ is shutting down.I'm basically dilly-dallying on the internets (whimsical, eclectic and at times NSFW). I do have another account at #diaspora but couldn't use the credentials over here. Guess I have to figure out how it works exactly, with pods and the Federation.

Hey everyone, I’m not exactly #newhere, because I've been lurking and commenting for a while, but I think it is time to get this first post done. I’m interested in #amateurradio, #arduino, #baking, #bikes, #chinese, #chocolate, #cooking, #electronics, #ev, #ghibli, #ham, #hamradio, #japan, #languages, #motorcycle, #nkust, #raspberrypi, #taiwan, #台灣, and #高科大. I am interested in a few more things, but I don't for example like to be notified multiple times that a new version X of Linux distribution Y is out, for me it's simply my standard OS to work with, not a toy.

I still need to refine the tags I'm following, but I guess those are fluid anyway. I will also need to experiment a bit with posting options, so apologies if the first posts are a little barebone. And I hope this will be fun...
 

To All Who are #NewHere

Welcome!


Besides all the other very helpful stuff that people post here about the #Federation and the #Fediverse, we still see a lot of new people appear, post their #newhere message, and then we never see them again. To help with that, I wanted to offer this little bit of information.
Diaspora takes time to become what you want it it to be.

This is because #Diaspora will not suggest “people you may know” or “stuff you might be interested in.” There’s no data-mining or tracking or spying on you to find out what to “suggest” to you. You build your own here, and that takes a little more time. It’s well worth the investment, but things will get off to a slow start at first. So I suggest the following:

Follow #hashtags that you’re interested in. You’ll find some really great stuff written by people who share that interest. Read the comments on those posts, and you’ll find even more people who write great stuff on the subject.

Follow people instead of just hashtags. Those people you find who write really good stuff, you can share with (add to your Aspects). I create new Aspect Categories according to some of the hashtags I follow. You can also ignore people who write stupid stuff, or who just fill your Stream with spam posts.

Make an imaginative profile that makes people want to share with you. Besides just listing your interests, you can include things you have contributed to the world. Even if it’s just “Little League outfielder” or “I talk too much in class” or “I have an awesome recipe for peach cobbler.”

Invest a little time in making Diaspora your own. It doesn’t really work on “auto-pilot.” It’s well worth the time!

 

Hello and a big welcome

to everyone new to diaspora*


With Google+ closing today, you might have just signed up to diaspora* looking for a new home. We're so pleased that you've decided to give diaspora* a try. It's fantastic that you've joined us! We have a big existing community of former G+ users, and you could try tags such as #gplusrefugee and #googleplus to connect with people you know from G+.

We hope that you quickly find your way here, and enjoy getting connected with people and content.

Here's a few tips for getting started:
  • There are some step-by-step tutorials on our project website covering the basics of how diaspora* works, and how to get connected with people. There's a link to these in the side-bar, should you ever want to read them in future, and there's also an in-app Help section you can access through your user menu (at the right-hand end of the header bar).
  • You can search for people by name or by diaspora* ID (which looks like an email address), if you know it, from the search field in the header bar. You can invite people to join you in diaspora* by sending them a link to our project website, from where they can choose their own pod to register with. Your friends don't need to be on the same pod as you in order to connect and communicate with you.
  • One good way to start getting connected with people is to start following some #tags of subjects that interest you (maybe #music, #photography, #linux, or #activism ... whatever interests you) so that you will see content on those topics in your stream. You can then start following people whose posts you find interesting, by placing them into one of your aspects.
  • If you have any questions, post something with the #question or #help tag, and people will try to help you. Make sure to make your post public so anyone who can help is able to see it!
diaspora* has some very simple community guidelines, which we hope everyone will feel able to follow so that all members can have the best possible experience here.

We're trying to improve diaspora* all the time, fixing bugs, honing performance and adding new features. But how fast we can do this is limited by the time developers have. To improve diaspora* faster, we need more developers! If you've just signed up and can code, or know someone who can and who might be interested in joining our team, get in touch!

@Brian Ó 🐟 Is there actually a way to simply lock these accounts and enforce some sort of email ping-pong to get them re-opened eventually?

Maybe even they need to set up a way for 2fa to finally use the account for posting?

I'm thinking about how to automatically handle those accounts and give potential users a way to verify themselves as real users in some timeframe.....

Like, if a new account has not posted a #newhere post within the first 2 weeks, or posted nothing at all nor did it interact with others, then they chance that it might be a bot/spammer-account is somewhat high, IMHO. But if it was just a lazy user who did not check back for some days, he should maybe able to show some life signs... ;)
 
Hello again,
I'm not exactly #newhere, been here for three days. Tried adding some people that I thought I might connect with.
However I still don't see many posts except for unofficial news agencies. To be honest this feels kinda empty here
and boring. Not sure if this is against the rules but I'd like to post some pictures and music as well.

Good info for new users

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.
Bild/Foto

- 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.
 
"That’s not because U.S. media stars are ordered to do this. They don’t need to be ordered. They know propaganda is their job. More to the point, they are über-patriotic jingoists who revere U.S. officials and thus do not possess a single cell of critical thinking in their brain. That’s why they have TV programs in the first place."

Welcome @Christopher, I'm #newhere myself. Got the pod stood up yesterday. Starting to see a few more servers show up, hopefully that means I will get to see more public hashtags.
 
Howdy @Christopher! Please give us a post with a #newhere hashtag and a few words so we can learn a bit about you 😀

Hi!

I'm #newhere but I'm liking friendica so far. When I'm on my phone I access friendica from Chrome and it's working decently but I was wondering if there are any good apps for android?

Thanks! 😁

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!

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.

Hello and a big welcome

to everyone new to diaspora\*


We're so pleased that you've decided to give diaspora\* a try. It's fantastic that you've joined us!

We hope that you quickly find your way here, and enjoy getting connected with people and content.

Here's a few tips for getting started:
  • There are some step-by-step tutorials on our project website covering the basics of how diaspora* works, and how to get connected with people. There's a link to these in the side-bar, should you ever want to read them in future, and there's also an in-app Help section you can access through your user menu (at the right-hand end of the header bar).
  • You can search for people by name or by diaspora* ID (which looks like an email address), if you know it, from the search field in the header bar. You can invite people to join you in diaspora* by sending them a link to our project website, from where they can choose their own pod to register with. Your friends don't need to be on the same pod as you in order to connect and communicate with you.
  • One good way to start getting connected with people is to start following some #tags of subjects that interest you (maybe #music, #photography, #linux, or #activism ... whatever interests you) so that you will see content on those topics in your stream. You can then start following people whose posts you find interesting, by placing them into one of your aspects.

diaspora\* has some very simple community guidelines, which we hope everyone will feel able to follow so that all members can have the best possible experience here.

We're trying to improve diaspora* all the time, fixing bugs, honing performance and adding new features. But how fast we can do this is limited by the time developers have. To improve diaspora* faster, we need more developers! If you've just signed up and can code, or know someone who can and who might be interested in joining our team, get in touch!

Hello and a big welcome

to everyone new to diaspora\*


We're so pleased that you've decided to give diaspora\* a try. It's fantastic that you've joined us!

We hope that you quickly find your way here, and enjoy getting connected with people and content.

Here's a few tips for getting started:
  • There are some step-by-step tutorials on our project website covering the basics of how diaspora* works, and how to get connected with people. There's a link to these in the side-bar, should you ever want to read them in future, and there's also an in-app Help section you can access through your user menu (at the right-hand end of the header bar).
  • You can search for people by name or by diaspora* ID (which looks like an email address), if you know it, from the search field in the header bar. You can invite people to join you in diaspora* by sending them a link to our project website, from where they can choose their own pod to register with. Your friends don't need to be on the same pod as you in order to connect and communicate with you.
  • One good way to start getting connected with people is to start following some #tags of subjects that interest you (maybe #music, #photography, #linux, or #activism ... whatever interests you) so that you will see content on those topics in your stream. You can then start following people whose posts you find interesting, by placing them into one of your aspects.
  • If you have any questions, post something with the #question or #help tag, and people will try to help you. Make sure to make your post public so anyone who can help is able to see it!

I stuffed a shirt or two into my old carpet-bag, tucked it under my arm, and started for Cape Horn and the Pacific. Quitting the good city of old Manhatto, I duly arrived in New Bedford. It was a Saturday night in December. Much was I disappointed upon learning that the little packet for Nantucket had already sailed, and that no way of reaching that place would offer, till the following Monday.

@Tony Steele

Welcome here 😀


Are you sure your #newhere post is public?
I'm asking because I can't see it when I go to your profile.
 
@alysonsee (Fca) with the intent of taking into account the remarks made here and to provide any lambda newcomer (like me), I've given a brush to your first text. Interested in builts.
=============
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.

- 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.

Well, he's definitely off to a good start. I only got two comments on my #Newhere post. 😉
 
I think common courtesy and keeping to polite protocol is something that most people here respect. To appear on a #newhere post and have an open discussion on religion (or whatever) and drag the topic so far off thread is not, in my mind, the right thing to do.

I think anyone who "feeds a troll" on any thread will definitely have problems in trying to keep their posts free from abusive comments

The system of ignoring is far from perfect but people have informed me that most people in the Fediverse get along very well anyway and this seems to be supported by the wonderful support David has received on this thread.

That said David, a very good friend, is more than capable of dealing with such situations. He is more intelligent and better qualified than I will ever be and will be an asset to Pluspora if he decides to stay

Hello World

I started to learn #Farsi (also known as #Persian, the language spoken in #Iran‌) a couple of months ago and I want to try to document here some of the things I'm learning. I don't know how this is going to work out, but I guess there is no harm in trying.

Disclaimer: Since I'm only learning this language there is no guarantee of correctness for anything I'm writing here.

#newhere
