Time to Celebrate!


(Repost for conference day. Thanks for the many shares of the original)

Here we all are on Pluspora, a Diaspora pod, and it’s time to celebrate.

Celebrate what?

That we are in the best time for a platform, a time of mutual discovery, enjoyment, respect.

And I think I know how to keep this feeling going. It doesn’t just depend on the fact that the population is modest (though surprisingly large, in context!) It’s like a small town public square. One major factor is, in my view, this:

Expectations

Once a network reaches a certain size and momentum, some of its population begins to ruminate publicly, “But we need this feature.” “Why aren’t there events?” I won’t go over Gplus history, but I saw it happen. The corporate management steered the ship, and eventually steered it into the rocks, IMO.

The Federated Difference

We are a community on this pod. If you become restless or dissatisfied on it, you can join other pods. I’m not here to talk about other platforms, which are numerous, but I find that Diaspora, while a bit stark on both features and visual design, has more potential.

An online friend wanted more features, more chance to tweak things. He chose to get on Hubzilla. The beauty of federation is, he can still be here with us, via Hubzilla. Pods are like states in a federated nation, except the 'nation' has no overhead or war.

The main ingredient

We, the people who populate this pod, are in control of its most import resource: ourselves. How we treat each other, what we choose to put out there, who we connect with, these are the important characteristics of the pod and ultimately of the federation.

What Can You Do?

Today, there will be a live interactive conference about Pluspora and Diaspora. If you can't be there live, you will be able to listen or watch the archived recordings. Audio is distributed as a podcast, Visions Under Construction. In case you think I will run out of energy while trying to help spread the word about Diaspora, I have been doing this conference for 11 years. What you can do is to understand why Diaspora (and variations in the federation) is important and explain it to friends. If our conference next Friday is successful, perhaps share it with friends. You can also spread the word. The more people that see and hear it, the more will eventually join, at least to test the waters.

I’m pleased to have already met several new people here who share interests with me and we’ve interacted on different levels.
I thank you all for being a part of this experience!

ActivityPub? Well, it’s not that bad

This is an answer to the blog post ActivityPub – one protocol to rule them all? of Dennis Schubert. Dennis was asked if Diaspora would implement ActivityPub, this blog post was his answer.

   Happy Birthday, XMPP! 20th Anniversary of 1st Jabber Server 

   debacle – 2 days ago - 21:37 edit

[3]XMPP a.k.a. Jabber, a [4]communication protocol for message-oriented middleware is probably the most mature technology for free and federated instant messaging. (IRC is far older, of course.) On 2019-01-04 we can celebrate the 20th anniversary of the first XMPP server release:
[5]Jeremie Miller began working on the Jabber technology in 1998 and released the first version of the jabberd server on January 4, 1999.

[6]In the last twenty years, we have seen protocols and services come and go, but XMPP, an IETF standard, is here to stay. It is backed by an international community of developers, does not depend on a single company, and is enhanced continuously by the [7]XSF. Btw.: XMPP is not only used for chatting, but also for IoT, WebRTC, micro-blogging and social networks!

Federation Testsuite


Currently the federated web holds 35 projects with 9 different protocols (source: the-federation.info) all trying to connect and communicate with each other. But does that actually work? Most of the projects do have unit testing but only for certain areas, like the front-end or the database, but the protocol itself isn't tested. Well it definitely works-on-my-machine but does it work on others too?

https://feneas.org/federation-testsuite/

#Fediverse #Federation #testsuite #Feneas #diaspora #ActivityPub

 
To me it looks like it's okay as of now? Reading and commenting this in/from my dspr.io stream.

Settings
My problem is that all of my Diaspora and Friendica friends won’t know to do this.
Not quite sure if I understand what you mean, I did nothing to the settings of my dspr.io profile or to the contacts lists. I'm not even aware of options within the diaspora sphere concerning users administrating federation settings. The only network I know of having this is Hubzilla (haven't looked close enough to Friendzilla, though)

Account name federation
if I ask them to search for that account within the #Federation, it says there is no such user.
Seems to be lapsed: When I search for your accounts using the dspr.io pod, I find a total of four:
  • hub.disroot.org (the sole one I'm connected to from D*)
  • libranet.de
  • joindiaspora.com
  • hub.libranet.de
How many posts were missing?
  • As seen on Diaspora: I can find a post about 2 hours older "How do I get my clone synced up?". The next older post is from 9 days before, a picture taken at a coffee and pastry shop in Denver.
  • As seen on Hubzilla: There are a three more in the respective time slot.
Comments --- From my Diaspora account I cannot see the comment @Giacomino posted to this thread. (I only know that he even commented from double-checking on Hubzilla). But that's on another sheet concerning federation and protocols in general, I guess.

Server performance --- I'm not sure how much upstream disroot.org delivers, but at the moment it takes ages to open links (e.g. profiles) or to render a simple "Like" to comments or postings - as in about 15 seconds per click. My mobile hotspot acts a lot quicker on d* sites, so it's not the connection.

My personal takeaways (and thank you for the heads up)
  • The message about the update should have clearly told Hubzilla users that, if they won't activate given plugins, their profile will no longer federate with other platforms.
  • I ignored and postponed this hint. I should have taken the time to read this thoroughly and should have taken action. Now I did. Thankfully the podmin of my instance is very committed and provides all plugins needed
  • When users depend on instance/pod admins concerning the installation of plugins vital to the core functionality there is only one viable solution to have a reliable, production-ready profile: self-hosted is the way to go.

How do I get unghosted?


!{support@zotadel.net} My instance upgraded from #Hubzilla 3.6.x to 3.8.8 this past week. In the process, my account got deleted from the point of view of #Friendica and #Diaspora. In particular, my connected Friendica and Diaspora accounts no longer show alysonsee@hub.disroot.org as a connection, and if I ask them to search for that account within the #Federation, it says there is no such user.

I did discover that my Hubzilla account post-upgrade had all of its apps reset. Once I added the Diaspora and ActivityPub apps back, my Friendica account was able to find and re-add a connection to my Hubzilla account. My problem is that all of my Diaspora and Friendica friends won't know to do this. From their perspective, I vaporized off the face of the Federation.

Is there any way to restore my friends' connections to my Hubzilla account? (That is, short of me manually dropping and re-adding them from my end and hoping they do the same back.)

 

Tags and Aspects and Federation, Oh My!


For us Google+ refugees, adjusting to Diaspora* (and pluspora) can be a bit of an adjustment. We were all used to circles and collections and communities and we were comfortable. Sure, Google+ had hashtags but almost no one used them so it was almost like they did not exist. The good news is that Diaspora* works almost exactly like Google+ and you merely need to tweak your vocabulary.

TL;DR

  • Post everything to Public using the drop-down menu next to the Share button.
  • Add hashtags liberally so that people can find your posts.
  • Follow interesting people, especially if they use a different pod (have something different after the @ than you do)

Tags


Tags work like supercharged circles. When you post, you add hashtags to it. These hashtags group your posts by subject, like a Google+ collection. You can add as many hashtags as you like, which is different from G+ which restricted a post to a single circle.

Tags are supercharged because they are also used for reading, to control which posts show up in your stream. You can follow a tag, regardless of who posts using the tag. On Google+, you could follow an individual's "caturday" circle but there was no way to follow all caturday circles.

Aspects


When you follow an individual on Diaspora*, you add them to one or more aspects. This is almost the same as adding a Google+ person to one or more circles. Their posts will show up in your stream.

Federation


I wrote that aspects are "almost" like circles because there is a key difference between Google+ and Diaspora*: Federation. It makes following important. Google+ was one huge system; you could always see all posts. Diaspora* is a federation of smaller systems, called pods, and you can only see the posts which are on your pod. When you follow someone who uses a different pod (add them to one of your aspects), your pod copies that person's new posts from the other pod. This makes interesting stuff spread around the federation, since a public post becomes visible in more places.

#diaspora #tip #googleplus #tags #aspects #federation

 

#Federation (also known as #Decentralisation) is when, instead of one big site, you have lots of smaller independent sites that talk to each other.


Here's a short non-technical article about why federated services are a good idea, and how all of us use them all the time (even if we don't realise it):

https://switching.social/federated-sites/

The idea of federated social media like Mastodon, Diaspora, PeerTube etc is to give users more control over their social network and personal data.

The Mystery of the Missing & Late Cross-Platform Posts


!{support@zotadel.net}
!{disroot@hub.disroot.org}

Fellow Hubzillans, I apologize in advance for combining so many questions into one post. I'm super confused and frustrated but I don't understand cross-platform #federation well enough to know what to be frustrated with or how to tease these issues apart. Yesterday, I wanted to test #hubzilla notifications of "mentions" from multiple platforms. So, I created posts mentioning this Hubzilla account from my #diaspora, #mastodon, #friendica, and #osada accounts. In case it matters, note that my Hubzilla account has a two-way connection with each of these other accounts. Skip to the bottom for my questions.

Results of posting and mentioning from different platforms:

Diaspora: The post from @Alyson showed up in my Hubzilla feed quickly, as did a notification of the mention. The comment I made on it from my Friendica account ( @Alyson See ) also appeared in my Hubzilla feed and I got a notification of the mention the Fca account made of the Hz account. That's good news. What's weird is that my comment from Fca showed up only once from the perspective of D\* account and my Hz account but showed up TWICE for @BOET 's Hubzilla account--delivered once via Friendica and once via ActivityPub. In fact, a number of Hubzilla users have reported seeing some Friendica comments twice in threads lately. (Original post is here: https://joindiaspora.com/posts/bb8dfac0d17e0136d1f50218b70db60d . Hub.disroot.org's copy is here: https://hub.disroot.org/display/0b6b25a8-975b-f84d-2905-a68965841276 )

Mastodon: It took nearly a day for my post from @alysonsee to show up in my Hubzilla feed. But it eventually did, along with the reply from my Osada account, which strangely came in over ActivityPub rather than Zot. However, I got no notifications for the mentions in the original Mastodon post or the Osada comment. has recently added a fix for "mention" notifications from ActivityPub events which will likely go out in Hubzilla v4. So, the only real frustration here is that it took so fracking long for the post to arrive on hub.disroot.org--especially in comparison to posts from my canine.cloud Mastodon account (which show up within a minute) and that account is only a one-way connection (from Hz to the canine.cloud account). (Original post is here: https://mastodon.social/@alysonsee/101121457630580628 )

Friendica: It has been over a day and my post from @Alyson See still has not shown up in my Hubzilla feed. In fact, if I look from my Hubzilla account at the "Recent Activity" on that connection over the last couple of months, the content is very spotty. Some "likes" are there but not all. Some "comments" are there but not all. The last post that came through was 2 months ago, shortly after I connected the two accounts, which means that it has missed 5 other posts. My Hubzilla clone account (on hub.libranet.de) only has one of my Fca account's posts from the last 2 months, but a different one than the one my primary Hubzilla account has. Strangely, @BOET received my Friendica test post in his Hubzilla feed straight away--in fact, faster than he gets my hub.disroot.org posts. Even my Mastodon and Osada accounts received the post and were able to comment on it. Also, I have received posts from other libranet.de (Friendica) users in my hub.disroot.org feed. So, why are the posts from my Fca account missing in my Hz feed?

Osada: My Osada post showed up in my Hubzilla feed pretty quickly but via ActivityPub. I mean, that's fine. I just would have expected Zot --> Zot would be the default. It also means that my Hz account didn't get a "mention" notification. Also, it didn't show up in my Hubzilla clone's feed. My Friendica account saw it and was able to comment on it. But that was about an hour ago and the comment still hasn't shown up in my Hubzilla feed (primary or clone).

One last tidbit: After a couple of hours of trying these different combos, hub.disroot.org went down for at least 12 hours. (I went to bed and so stopped trying until morning.)

So, to recap:
(1) Why do comments from Friendica show up twice in threads (delivered once via Friendica and once via ActivityPub)? (I don't know for sure, but I'm guessing that these comments are coming from users on an Fca instance running the dev branch implementation of ActivityPub. Tagging @Michael Vogel because I think that's his area. )
(2) Why did my mastodon.social post take nearly a day to arrive on hub.disroot.org? Is that a hub.disroot.org problem or a mastodon.social problem?
(3) On a related note, why does it take about 24 hours for my hub.disroot.org Hubzilla posts to be delivered to @BOET ? Is that a hub.disroot.org problem or a nexxt.social problem?
(4) Why can other Hubzilla users get my libranet.de Friendica posts and my hub.disroot.org Hz account can see others' libranet.de Fca posts but my hub.disroot.com Hz account can't see > my

libranet.de Fca posts?
(5) If my Hubzilla primary and clone accounts can receive one post from a Friendica connection, then why don't they get all of them?
(6) On a related note, if my Hubzilla clone can receive one post from a one-way Mastodon connection, then why doesn't it get all of them? Or, for that matter, why doesn't it get the posts from a two-way connection on a different Mastodon instance?
(7) Why does my Hubzilla account get posts from Osada via ActivityPub rather than Zot?
(8) How many of these behaviors could be related to my primary Hubzilla instance being at v3.6.1?

 
#hubzilla #federation #following

when i thought my #odyssey across social networks -- federated of course -- was over i found that i'd messed up things by following D* contacts from different incarnations of my hubzilla identity, on different hubs. bleh...

means i had to create another channel, a different identity on hubz which, of course, has no contacts anymore. i really appreciate the trouble some of you have taken by following me this far, from here to there and somewhere else.

the "me" i'm posting from now, phani00 @ diasp.org will remain, so not everything is lost, but my new alter-ego at hubzilla, phani @ hub.phanisvara.com, a.k.a. phani (Hubzilla), is going to add most of you to his/my contact list again. i'll be able to follow you even without you adding me back -- as long as your posts are public.

therefore my request to those of you who switched to limited posting: please do add me back. otherwise i won't be able to see what you say :-(

I thought of trying to fit in the logos of all the federation software on this drawing I made three years ago. (You can find the high resolution file here).

Diaspora and Friendica is already there - I have Hubzilla, Mastodon, Gsocial... and then I can't remember if there are others? Anyone who can?

(G+ might also soon be obsolete so what can that be substituted with? Smapchat maybe?

#theFederation #federation #diaspora #hubzilla #Friendica #Mastodon #gsocial #art #mywork #drawing #krita

 
Friends and followers,

I'm going to spend a little time on my Friendica account so that I can better help Federation newbies navigate the user interfaces and features of the various platforms. (I'm already very familiar with Diaspora and Hubzilla, as those have been, in turn, my primary home for some months.) I'm also going to start beefing up the connections on my Hubzilla clone. (I want to experiment with swapping the primary and the clone see what I can learn from that too.)

So, if you follow me here, please also follow me on @Alyson See (Friendica). The more people I can interact with there, the more I can learn about navigating the features. And if you get a connection request from that account or from alysonsee@hub.libranet.de, please add me back and put me in whichever aspects/privacy groups you have for this account. You can tell the difference between my various alysonsee accounts based on the picture. I'll see about adding a D\*, Hz, Fca to the channel names to help differentiate too.

Thanks for helping me help others!

We've talked about people joining some of the other options out there where they can still talk to their #GPlus friends. Here's how to find an Hubzilla hub that can talk to Pluspora (part of Diaspora):

#hubzilla #federation #diaspora #tip

Hubzilla Public Hubs and Federation

TL;DR
"Using 2 hubs for an example here:
in https://gerzilla.de/siteinfo/json you can find diaspora but in https://start.hubzilla.org/siteinfo/json you can not.

Ps: once you've found an hub with federation plugins, you need to enable these plugins (even at the user level) in your configurations/setting page to make them work."

 
Thanks for all of the re-shares of my earlier welcome to the #gplusrefugees (from my Diaspora account). Some folks who are #newhere have expressed frustration with the lack of certain features on #diaspora. Please consider trying out #hubzilla or #friendica as alternatives if you are looking for the abilities to ...
- Edit posts or comments.
- "Like" comments.
- Post pictures in comments.
- Create groups (e.g., around a common interest).
- Receive autocompletes of mentions while composing on the mobile site.

Friendica and Hubzilla implement the Diaspora protocol as well as others ones. I moved from D* to Hubzilla about a month ago and took all of my D* friends with me and then made a bunch of new friends from Mastodon as well. A bonus on Hubzilla is that when the primary instance (pod) for my channel goes down--remember, these #federation instances/pods are all volunteer operations, so you gotta be patient and flexible--I can switch to using a cloned instance. No downtime! (My primary is on hub.disroot.org and my clone is on hub.libranet.de.)

Now, please enjoy a few more warm-hearted folks to follow:
@splendorsolis loves pets and people being kind to each other.
@JB Carroll generously makes his tech knowledge accessible. (And he's on Friendica!)
@Passagier 451 generously boosts newbies and shares humor and joyful curiosities.
@Johnny Rei shares his enthusiastic love of nature.

If you decide to try out Friendica or Hubzilla and want to follow warm-hearted people from the #fediverse as well, I recommend starting with @Ignacio Gallup-Diaz and @Gwenfar, aka Julieanne.

Have fun, make friends, and block the nazis!

Welcome to the #gplusrefugees . It's energizing to see so many new faces embracing #diaspora .

The #federation is amazing invention, and a very different way of finding and connecting to others. Briefly, your pod (the part after the @ sign in your webbie) is one instance of the software platform known as Diaspora (which implements a protocol also called Diaspora). And Diaspora is just one platform in a multitude of other platforms that interconnect. You can connect with people on any platform that implements the Diaspora protocol (e.g., Friendica, Pleroma, Hubzilla, or Socialhome). For example, I usually post from my Hubzilla account ( @alysonsee ), and my posts from that account are seen by all of my D\* friends and I see their posts. Here is a handy intro.

If you are looking for new friends out here, let me suggest some of the most welcoming, warm-hearted folks I've met: @Adam Hunt is always ready with a helpful hand, whether on the shoreline IRL or out here in the ether. @Jose Luis always brightens my day. @Birne Helene makes it easy to find other lovely and interesting Diasporans to connect with. makes me a better person just by being who he is.

 

Coralproject Talk


Has anyone gotten #coralproject 's Talk #comment server to work? I've tried downloading their #docker images to get into the admin install area but I'm always greeted by a blank screen. I have a feeling it's a permission issue somewhere. The devs are nice but a little slow in responding. Just throwing it out to the #federation and #fediverse in case anyone has that experience.

 
S/O to @randygalbraith and @Alyson for being really decent people with excellent commentary on the #federation , a place where you don't necessarily have to have those qualities. :-)
