    Reminder: Leaving Diaspora

    debacle · Saturday, 31 July - 08:58 edit

Reminder to my dear followers on Diaspora: I'm leaving Diaspora soon!

Reason: My Diaspora service will close. Thanks to the Framasphere people for providing this great service over so many years! Merci infiniment !

Feel free to follow me on Movim with your Jabber/XMPP account.

I'm also on Mastodon, at least until an XMPP-ActivityPub gateway exists.

    Btw. there are some nice things, which I can do with Movim, but not with Diaspora. Most important: I can edit and correct my posts! I mistype so often and realise it afterwards. In Diaspora I had to remove the post and make a new one. In Movim I can just edit the post.

    Second: I'm not forced to use the web browser to make a post. It is all possible from the command line using the jp tool (in Debian: sat-xmpp-jp).

    Also nice: When using the command line tool, it is possible to control the resulting URL. is better readable than

Mi primera experiencia en #movim, he escuchado sobre esta plataforma en #mastodon , me decidí a empezar un blog por acá para ayudar a todos aquellos que deseen primero leerme y segundo aprender un idioma extranjero, imparto español a angloparlantes e inglés a hispanohablantes, el objetivo es brindar consejos y como no hablar de cada publicación que hago a través de los canales por los cuales imparto mis cursos gratuitos para todo aquel que desee superarse y por que no disfrutar aprendiendo.

My first experience in #movim, I have heard about this platform reading some posts in #mastodon , I decided to start a blog to help all those who want to learn a foreign language , I teach Spanish to English speakers and English to Spanish speakers, the objective of this blog is to provide advice and talk about each post I upload through the channels in which I teach for free for everyone who want to improve themselves and enjoy learning.

Some random ideas about how likes should work in a social network, e.g. #Movim #Salutatoi #Libervia in the long run.

I'm referring to postings only, not chat.

Social networks are all getting high by the alternation of Adrenaline and Dopamine, intensified by the occasional dose rate of Caffeine, when geting #likes.

  1. On Movim, I can get information about recent likes in the notifications, but I would like to have an overview about all likes I ever got.
  2. Also, I'm missing an overview about all postings, that I liked at some point.
  3. In social networks one can find like-minded people. How about notifying me, when posting I liked or commented on, get more likes or comments by others? #Diaspora does this.
  4. Movim only allows for a like, but not for any other reaction. Message Reactions OTOH, allow for multiple, different #reactions, which I find more interesting.
  5. If a network becomes larger, fraud and abuse will be quick to follow. I'll post "vi is great", wait for some likes, and the correct the post to "Emacs is great". My likers will not even get a notification, nor is there a change history. Diaspora "solves" this by not allowing changes of posts, which is horrible - I can't even fix my typos. #Mastodon seems to replace the orginal post with a complete new one on change - losing answers and likes (favourites). Therefore:
    1. Likers must be notified, if a posting they liked has been altered, so that they can decide to remove their reaction.
    2. A change history should be visible.
  6. When talking about fraud and abuse: At some point, it should be possible to digitally sign postings, e.g. using #OX, so that everybody can verify the authenticity of a posting. This is esp. important in a federated network, where fake sites might appear. Likewise, reactions should be optionally signed, too.

    Usefull ideas about likes on social networks such as Movim. About point 4, Movim allows for basic comment and when I'm not mistaken the author will get an notification of this. It lacks functionality e.g responding to a specific comment but it is there.

  • 24 January, 2021 debacle

    Yes, I know about the comments, but with reactions I meant something similar to a "like" or in "XEP-xxxx: Message Reactions".

    I think Mastodon is mature enough to replace Twitter but there's still nothing good enough to replace Facebook. Not even close.

  • 28 January, 2021 Yannv

    I put an issue on github for the comment follow-up and to eventually have a page that summarizes what we commented / liked. I wish I could help with the dev but I need to take the time to understand the structure first.

    A WhatsApp Poll I Ran Showed Way Higher Engagement On Mastodon (Twitter Alternative) Despite Fewer Followers And I Have A Theory

    Danie van der Merwe · / gadgeteerza-tech-blog · Thursday, 14 January, 2021 - 08:51

On Twitter I have 774 followers after 12 years of use, and on Mastodon I have 538 followers after only 3 or so years. I post the identical posts to both networks at the same time, and respond on both. Yet I see noticeably more engagement, queries, comments, etc on my posts at Mastodon. This poll had 136 votes on Mastodon but only 25 votes on Twitter. It got 12 reshares on Mastodon and 1 on Twitter. Both polls had the same hashtags and #DeleteWhatsApp was very busy on both networks.

My theory is that on Twitter an individual's posts get largely drowned out by adverts and promoted posts, and of course the algorithm that shows "top posts", whereas on Mastodon users only see who they are following giving more visibility to a user posting...

    I've never been on Twitter but from what I've seen the difference can also partly be explained by the way people interact with it. Twitter seems to be largely populated with people that use it to only promote themselves and read some news and therefore are not the least interested in any conversation. On the Fosstodon instance where I hang out the number of self-promoters (he look at my awesome video or blog post) is very low and can be considered spam by the moderators. I noticed that people on Fosstodon love interaction.

  • 14 January, 2021 Danie van der Merwe

    Yes you may have put your finger on it there... just lots of pushing on Twitter.

    I also find this to be true. I also find more substantive interaction on Mastodon/Pleroma than on walled gardens Gab and Parler.
