Friendica timelines are compelling
There's something about the method that Friendica uses to generate timelines that I find really compelling, and that doesn't seem to be talked about much. Friendica's timelines are "post" centred, with replies appearing as a tree attached to that post, in a similar way to Facebook. It's distinct from the more Twitter like method common on most of the [#microfedi]( platforms, in which there is no real difference between a post and a reply. The reason that I find this framework so compelling is that it means you always have context and full conversations in view. If someone you follow replies to someone else you follow, the whole post and all of the replies appear in your timeline again, with full context at a glance. Similarly, when you're reading your timeline, everything is grouped together. Everyone in your timeline that replied to a post is there on that post with full context. And if you're not interested, it's trivial to just scroll past. Compare this to Mastodon, Misskey etc and their forks, where you tend to only see one branch of a conversation, and often have the same conversation showing up in your timeline multiple times depending on who is involved. It's an option for interacting with timelines that I'd love to see implemented in other FediVerse platforms! [\#friendica]( [#Fediverse]( [#Fedivangelism]( [@friendica]( [@fediverse](

A new test instance for Bonfire is born!
Interested in testing [#Bonfire]( and providing feedback? Join [the new test instance]( ---------- [@fediverse]( **[The website has also been updated](** which hopefully explains the project a bit better 😅 While the playground (an older test instance) was about experimenting with the UX and all the different features and extensions in the works, the campground only has the core and social extensions enabled while focusing on stabilizing them (incl. federation) before a v1.0 release 🔥 **[Link to original post](**

Reminder that there are 2 mental health communities available at your disposal to accommodate multip
I have created two specific mental health communities, one for positive and/or constructive discussion of mental health and wellness, and one to provide an outlet for people's unpleasant/destructive thoughts (sometimes voicing them will help temporarily quiet them if you are in acute distress). [Mental Health]( | [Void Screaming]( They won't cure you, but social support is an integral part of a well rounded mental-health treatment and wellness plan, and you deserve to have access to them in a federated/decentralized and non-monetized space. Cheers!

Welcome to another episode of Last Week in the Fediverse! The major theme of this week is news around technical infrastructure. experiences a DDoS attack, Twitter shuts down free access to the API, Stanford is called on by the community to start their own Mastodon server, and new tools get released with some interesting implications on the capabilities of the fediverse. Before we start: I prefer to write little about Twitter. Its already enough in the news as it is, with other publications covering it very well. Today I do cover it, but only the implications that this has on the fediverse, which turn out to be pretty significant. Lets get started!

Friendica contact discovery question
A question for the Friendica admins out there on the fediverse. What do you normally set your contact directory discovery to? Our is set to "local contacts" but when the importer workers hit profiles with 10's of thousands of apps, the workers just seem to hit a wall. I'm assuming they will get through the process eventually, but something like SignalApp, with 30K followers has been sitting at the front of the queue for nearly 3 hours now I could turn of contact discovery, but I'm not sure what impact that would have? Would turning it off lower the quality of contact suggestions, or is that information still available via the external directory server? [\#friendica]( [#FediAdmin]( [@friendica]( [@fediverse](

I'm excited about about a more CMS-like approach to a fediverse server, especially one that leans on #IndieWeb building blocks.

Fediverse is like email
It would be nice with a search engine made with decentralization in mind. Like the internet is decentralized but the good search engines are at centralised companies like Google etc.

Wanted: RSS reader for Social Media-feeds - recommendations?
Again and again it is mentioned as an elementary advantage of Mastodon & Co. that ActivityPub-feeds are accessible from everywhere thanks to RSS. That's true - but I don't have the right reader for such a purpose. I would like to have a doomscrolling-timeline for all the services that are accessible via RSS, not an article-reader like RSS clients usually are - with previews, open article, etc. Is there an app like '[Fritter](' that not only allows access to Twitter, but also to follow accounts via Nitter, Mastodon, PeerTube, etc. etc.? Can be for Android or Windows...

Mastodon founder has a message for Elon Musk

I’ve wanted full RSS feeds for several Mastodon instances for ages. They can be particularly useful for small instances (aka communities) with slow posting velocity

Ivory and, not yet
"As Mastodon becomes more popular, it’s important that stays true to its blogging roots and unique take on social media, rather than shifting to be a Twitter or Mastodon clone. We don’t need a monoculture with all apps looking exactly the same."

Mirror your favorite Twitter accounts in the Fediverse, so you can follow their updates from the comfort of your favorite instance. Or migrate your own to the Fediverse using a Twitter archive.

Even if it doesn't happen, I really wanna see more of this. The meta culture of fedi should seek to become evermore potent. Especially now that it's popping off.

Indymedia In The Fediverse? · by Bix Frankonis
There’s a great look back at the heyday of Indymedia from Todd Wolfson and Malav Kanuga for Logic Magazine. I wanted here to highlight two paragraphs in particular as it navigates from that era to today’s (over)reliance upon platform social media.

Apparently Buffer is pretty big in "social media professionals" circles.

    Fediverse is a portmanteau of “federation” and “universe”. It is a common, informal name for a federation of social network servers whose main purpose is microblogging, the sharing of short, public messages.
