What I dislike about the federation


I have been noticing since a while there is a very impolite attitude among many people who use the federated networks, the lacking of desire to build a community that include all the other ones from all the different countries and languages.

Many times I see posts that starting in English which is the most common ground to communicate among the others that end filled up in any others languages than English, along the fact that is unkindly and annoying, it goes in the opposite way of the inclusion which should be the reason why a social network exists.

It is true that Mastodon resolved it brilliantly but in Diaspora and Friendica you can't exclude topics because the language that means is up to the users take the task to avoid cross languages in any topic.

However I see there isn't any desire to avoid that behavior and people are quite careless about that, hence I think I will start to ignore all the people that do not respect this very simple, unwritten and basic rule.

hoergen on Friendica doesn't like this.

there is much room for many innovations in the interface to help encourage more of that community spirit, n discourage the obnoxious trolling behavior, methinks.

i've yet to get the skills/knowledge to hack up such possibilities myself yet. but i see the potential. the fediverse in its infancy, much to grow into better yet. :) and not just many new improvements, but many existing technologies to be tied in (translation for one).



Why is Friendica bloated by tons of trackers?


I noticed that Friendica has a tons of trackers, mine are disabled by my browser extensions, however Diaspora has 0 trackers.

It is something related with my Friendica server or it something that belongs to Friendica itself?

I am pretty confused... 🤔
diaspora federation fediverse friendica help pod trackers zot

@daniel01 That's odd I don't see that. But why don't you ask the admin Adam Clark (kinetix@social.isurf.ca). I believe he's a good guy.

I guess that mostly depends by how many youtube videos are showed in your stream as well as many twitters links are active... 🤔

New here


Hi guys,

I would like to say that I am #newhere but I don't, I would like to import my friendica account from the old server to a new one but I couldn't and since the moment my activity on Friendica hasn't been so massive I opened directly a new one...

By the way I am pleased to meeting you again!

And for those who already added me, please make it again:
