Out of curiosity: Outside of Mastodon, anyone have a favorite decentralized social network? (I hear Diaspora a lot, curious if there are others)
@MatejLach thank you!
@maria PT is the only other one I use myself right now. Some other worthy ones, which I do not personally use but do look promising are https://pixelfed.social (federated Instagram alternative), https://write.as, (federated Medium/blogging), https://joinplu.me, (also federated blogging) & https://funkwhale.audio, (federated music sharing/streaming).
I am also writing an #ActivityPub server myself, fediQuest, which fills the role of a federated Quora/SO alternative, but no site yet.
@maria Friendly informative message: Mastodon is not a decentralized social network ;) It is a software that grants you access to a decentralized social network. That network includes many other software, among which Peertube, Pleroma, Funkwhale, Pixfed, Plume and so many more ;)
@x_cli a good distinction to make. thank you for the correction!
fediverse talk, hubzilla
It can read/write ActivityPub (and by that being part of the fediverse), the diaspora protocol and the #zot protocol.
Beside being a social network it comes with everything you're used from having in a "cloud".
And what makes hubzilla unique is it' concept of #nomadicIdentity. Instead of being bound to a server, you can upload your identity to any server you want and taking all your data and connections with you (except the connectios that don't support nomadic identity)
A Mastodon instance for info/cyber security-minded people.
