Ein Forum für #neuhier und #newhere, folgt mal @NewHere Forum

Ich denke das könnte man eventuell auch für die #Fragen neuer Nutzer verwenden, statt @Friendica Support könnte man neue Nutzer mit wenig technischen Fragen dorthin verweisen, Nutzer helfen Nutzern und wenn es technisch wird oder Richtung Entwicklung geht dann wird wieder an @Friendica Support verwiesen.


A forum for #newhere and #neuhier, please follow @NewHere Forum

I think this could also be used for #questions of new users, all not so technical questions could be discussed there. Users could help users and if it gets to technical or goes towards development then we can send people over to @Friendica Support where the more complicated problems are discussed.

Excellent interview with Roger McNamee, one of the early backers of Facebook and Zuckerberg's mentor:

https://www.channel4.com/news/roger-mcnamee-facebooks-business-model-of-converting-peoples-lives-into-data-is-morally-wrong

He now deeply regrets what Facebook has become:

"The business model of converting lives into data, and then using that data to manipulate behaviour... that's just morally wrong."

Some were asking whether there is a Fediverse alternative to Facebook Events/Groups.

There is one on the way!

It's called Mobilizon, and it had a successful crowdfunding to cover development costs. The beta version is due out in October.

It will be free, open and federate with ActivityPub.

You can follow it on here:

@mobilizon

The website is here:

If you have Facebook "like" buttons embedded on your website, it could make you liable for breaking GDPR privacy laws, even if it's Facebook doing the illegal stuff:

https://www.theregister.co.uk/2019/07/29/eu_gdpr_facebook_like_button/

You can protect your site from legal liability (and protect your users' privacy) by removing all Facebook like buttons.

Please tell your employers/organisations about this ruling, it may help convince them that Facebook is toxic (or at least that embedded like buttons are toxic).

If you want people to find your public posts on Mastodon or the rest of the Fediverse, there's something important you need to know:

📣 USE HASHTAGS!

For privacy reasons, the only way to search for posts on here is by hashtag. If you don't include tags, no one will see your post in searches.

Hashtags have to be spelt exactly, so #MastoTip and #MastoTips would bring up two separate sets of results. Include multiple tags if you're not sure.

Good bye Diaspora


I've just had a really depressing period on Diaspora, people posting pretty nasty accusations against me which aren't true.

Just to set the record straight:
  • Switching.social is not a simple list of alternatives, it's a site about privacy-friendly alternatives for non-technical people. I started the site precisely because (as far as I can tell) no one else seemed to be doing something like this aimed at non-techies. Other alternatives sites either assume prior tech knowledge or include non-private alternatives.
  • There are no ads on switching.social, no sponsors, no trackers, no cookies, no visitor logs. I don't know anything about the people that visit, I don't even know how many visit, and I have no way of deriving any benefit from the site. I do the site beacuse I am very worried by the effect of privacy violations on society, and it's my way of trying to fight against the rot.
  • Most of what I do isn't visible on the site itself: I put a lot of time into reading up about alternatives, writing explanations, answering people's questions, looking at alternatives, following and promoting developers' projects, promoting other people's requests etc, especially on the Mastodon account. Most of my switching.social time is spent getting people aware of privacy-friendly alternatives and getting them to directly follow the makers of these alternatives, only a minority of my time goes into the site itself.
  • After I did the site and Mastodon account for a while, several people asked if I had a patreon, but I don't. So I did a set of long form essays about privacy and sold them as an ebook, as a way for people to donate. It was material that I wrote myself which was meant as a companion to the site, it wasn't just a "simple list". I've since discontinued the book (partly because the ebook sales site used proprietary platforms), and all it ever did was partially offset my hosting costs, it never made a profit. I don't make money from switching.social and never have done, that's not the point of the site. i resent people who claim I am doing this for profit, because it's not true and because it's not what I aim for either.
  • I block people who I think are being nasty, but that's my right. It is ok to block people on social media, that's how it works. If someone shouts outside your window, you are allowed to shut the window and draw the curtains. If someone blocks you, you haven't been victimised, just ignored.
The weirdest thing is this nastiness began soon after a discussion about moderation policies when I stated publicly that Nazism is absolutely wrong, and that Nazi material should be banned. The timing makes me wonder if the issues aren't so much me publishing an ebook as me taking a stand against Nazism.

I've had arguments with people on other platforms, both centralised and decentralised, but it's never been so nasty and paranoid as on Diaspora.

Added to this, the moderation and blocking system on Diaspora is inadequate. There are posts on Diaspora that are absolutely vile, and while the "Ignore" function allows me to stop seeing posts by specific people, it doesn't allow me to stop seeing replies from those people to other people.

So, I've had it with Diaspora. Until its moderation/blocking/reporting tools improve and until the paranoid racist culture disappears, I don't really want to be on this platform any more.
If you still want to follow me, I'm on Mastodon at https://mastodon.at/@switchingsocial

As Mastodon uses ActivityPub, this account can also be followed from other AP-compatible platforms like Friendica etc.

You can also follow Mastodon accounts through RSS: https://mastodon.at/@switchingsocial.rss

I've been on friendica for a few months now and I'm liking it so far. It can federate with Diaspora*, and from mobile I use the browser version
If you want to use the Fediverse through a Facebook-style interface, you may want to try Friendica.

Some good instances to sign up at:

https://social.isurf.ca/
https://nerdica.net/
https://libranet.de/

You can use Friendica through the @fedilab app.

It federates through ActivityPub with Mastodon etc and it also lets you follow RSS feeds as if they were users.

The developers are very active with regular new releases.

Mobilizon, the upcoming open federated alternative to Facebook Events, has reached its first crowdfunding goal of €20k:


https://joinmobilizon.org/en/

This covers development of the events software itself.

The next goal, €35k, adds federation through ActivityPub, which will let people on the Fediverse share and join events. This could be crucial to helping many more people leave Facebook 👍

You can donate at the link above, and follow them on the ActivityPub fediverse at:
@[email protected]

Mobilizon is being developed by @Framasoft, who have a solid track record of developing free open alternatives and organising crowdfunding for them. PeerTube, for example, was crowdfunded and developed through Framasoft, as well as dozens of other services: https://framasoft.org/en/

France's largest free software organisation @Framasoft has just launched a crowdfunding campaign for an open federated events tool, Mobilizon:

https://joinmobilizon.org/en/

Mobilizon would replace Facebook Events and similar closed services.

It would use ActivityPub, so people would be able to organise events on the ActivityPub Fediverse.

#Friendica has just been updated to version 2019.03

If you haven't tried Friendica lately, this might be a good time to take a look.

It's a Facebook alternative that works with both ActivityPub (Mastodon etc.) and Diaspora. It has a Facebook-style interface and similar features (photo galleries, events, groups etc). You can also follow RSS feeds alongside AP and Diaspora, all in a single news stream. (There are optional add-ons that let admins add even more networks too.)

Some good places to sign up:
https://nerdica.net
https://libranet.de
https://social.isurf.ca

You can find more Friendica instances in the official directory

You can use it through the browser, or through the Fedilab app available on Google Play and F-Droid.
