G+ style Multi-Column Streams in pluspora, Mastodon, Hubzilla, and Tumblr


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

Enjoy!

Calling all #Fediverse admins of instances in the #EU. The #CopyrightDirective is coming, we need to show the MEPs how massively the EU Internets will be affected.

We are preparing a list of all EU-based #Pleroma, #Mastodon, #GNUSocial, #Peertube, #Funkwhale, and any other instances.

Please *contact me*. All I need is the domain name, which EU Member State it's located in, and the rough topic of the instance. Approximate user count welcome, but not necessary.

Please help. This is important.

Three weeks ago I wrote a guide about FLOSS tools to create a forum or community. I updated this original post a fair bit and published it on my blog. I added lots of links to the source code and example websites of forums. I also expanded on most of the alternatives. Lastly I added Discourse as an option.

♲ Montag (montag@friendica.xyz):
Damit alle, die #neuhier sind auch mal etwas in ihrem Stream zu sehen bekommen, ist hier mal eine Übersicht über "offizielle" Präsenzen von Institutionen, Bloggern usw. im #fediverse. Das soll jetzt mal keine Liste mit gespiegelten Newsfeeds sein, sondern wirklich aktive Konten.

Die Liste ist hoffentlich nicht vollständig und kann gerne in den Kommentaren erweitert werden. Alle, die hier in der Liste auftauchen, sind auch mehr oder weniger aktiv. Ich werde diese Liste auch regelmäßig aktualisieren.

Es wäre natürlich toll, wenn möglichst viele diesen Konten folgen, damit die verantwortlichen Redakteure usw. sehen, das es Sinn macht, auch hier ein Konto zu haben und nicht nur eine Handvoll Nerds damit bespielt werden.

MoodleNet in 2018: a retrospective – MoodleNet project

MoodleNet is a new open social media platform for educators, focused on professional development and open content. It aims to sustainably empower communities of educators to share and learn from each other to improve the quality of education, and will be an integral part of the Moodle ecosystem.
The interesting part here, is that they decided to use #ActivityPub as communication backend.
http://commonspub.org/post/2018-11-29-commonspub-history/

They also have a blog post about Activity Pub:

Nextcloud introduces social features, joins the fediverse

 
The 2.7.0 #Mastodon update added a site directory feature. You can see it by adding "/explore" to your instance's address, for example:

https://mastodon.social/explore

It's opt-in, so it only lists people who have asked to be listed.

You can add yourself like this:

1. Go to Settings
2. Go to Edit Profile
3. Add hashtags to your profile bio, to let people know what kind of stuff you like to talk about
4. Tick the "List This Account on the directory" box
5. Click on "save changes"

Finally this happened!

#Friendica 2019.01 release now officially supports #activitypub out of the gate.

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

From their #changelong:

''The AP functionality was tested with Hubzilla, #Mastodon, #NextcloudSocial, #Osada, #PeerTube, with #Pixelfed and #Pleroma.''

Another bunch of users to interact with... a more viable alternative to FB and #Diaspora, because #activitypub (and #zot) is the future of decentralised social net.

Thank you guys,

 
There are many #Mastodon apps available, you can see an official listing here:

You can also follow the app makers on Mastodon:

Mastalab - @tom79

If you want to run your own #Mastodon instance but don't want to do techie stuff, you can get fully managed hosting from Masto.Host:

You control your instance, they do the behind-the-scenes technical maintenance.

#Mastodon 2.7 is released 🎉

 
@zlg @strypey Yeah, it's a bit shit in performance. The reason is I decided to rewrite the crappy backend in Feb to more modern code, but I was struck for time, so I did a hasty job with the #GraphQL API - which was the first time I used GraphQL.

It worked fine until I added #ActivityPub platforms like #Mastodon ;) Now the node list just kills the browser. I just need to get around to rewriting the node list. I don't think paging is needed, it's the rendering of the list which dies imho.

 
We need a logo for the #fediverse because when people equate #Mastodon to the entirety of the #fediverse like how @nextcloud did with that image at the bottom, we have a problem

 
Want to use a link shortener on #Mastodon?

Don't! :blobsurprised: All links in Mastodon posts count for 23 characters, no matter how long they really are.

(via @jond )

Refuse to provide clicks but #Mastodon and the rest of the #fediverse seem to be the exact opposite of crumbling to me.

Time is running out for GPlus refugees. G+ will close in April and it's API's will probably sunset by the end of this month (January). So to help people that haven't decided yet where to go in the Fediverse I made some pointers. I divided this guide in a number of sections. Each section describes a certain use of social networks and which networks are most suitable for this specific use. Combine this with your preferred use of a social network and you should be able make a decision.

Micro- or macroblog.


In general a macroblogger writes longer posts with longer intermittent periods while a microblogger writes short bursts on a daily basis. Microblog networks typically have a maximum post length of hundreds of characters. The macroblogger can choose between Diaspora***, *... Show more...

On the day I said I hadn’t run into too many bots on Mastodon this one popped up spamming my timeline lol. At least it wasn’t false advertising what it was and I can block it and its entire domain (which I of course did)…just the serendipity of it is humorous to me…the bot itself I found idiotic not humorous meanwhile it has 200+ followers...ah the internet... #mastodon #fediverse

Sur facebook, à force que je parle de Diaspora et Mastodon, on me pose des questions.

Je me suis essayée à un article sur le sujet, en tant que non informaticienne et à destination des non informaticiens, un peu comme "le réseau social libre et décentralisé expliqué à ma grand-mère".

Why are so many people are using Mastodon? Is it the Twitter like style clone?

#fediverse #federation #mastodon

 
Trying to archive my old data to really #deletefacebook as I try to move exclusively to #diaspora #mastodon and the #fediverse. Found some gotchas.

 

Mastodon are looking at account portability


There are scale and performance considerations.
Let's imagine a large account decides to move - me. At the time of writing, that's roughly N=200,000. That means the old server has to process 400,000 Sidekiq jobs, the new server has to process 600,000 Sidekiq jobs.

That is to say, that's a lot of Sidekiq jobs, and a lot of traffic. For this reason I believe that the UX around the account migration feature should be incredibly strict, to prevent multiple uses by the same person (across servers, too) as much as possible.
