@garritfra Very well summarized and explained! This is something worth showing to curious people.

@taamas I intentionally wrote this for people who have never heard of us before, so feel free to share it!

@garritfra nice post. Sharing this with my family πŸ˜‰ it's always funny to show them another option.

@c00kie Glad to hear that your family is open for new endeavors. My family would probably look at me weirdly, if I showed them this article.πŸ˜…

@garritfra I'll surf on the wave ;) they already installed Signal and dad became interested in privacy

@garritfra wow! Loved this post!

And now I have two questions:

1) Could I translate it to Spanish to post it in a Facebook page? People over there should read something like this

2) So, I could follow a Pixelfed account from my Mastodon account? I didn't know that! 🀯 How that works? The accounts from, lets say, Pixelfed, appear on the Mastodon fediverse feed? How can one know what type of account is each one?

Oh, definitely go ahead! Every exposure someone has to the fediverse is a win IMO. I'd love to read it, but my spanish is very bad.πŸ˜…

> So, I could follow a Pixelfed account from my Mastodon account?

This boils down to the very nature of the fediverse. Every type of service implements the ActivityPub protocol, which essentially is a unified language between every instance.

@dredstrauss Someone said that the fediverse is like a town-market full of people. Everyone speaks the same language, and everyone is offering different products.

@garritfra
There you have :D

(I'm trying to convince more people on those social networks to join the fediverse)

@dredstrauss Oh nice, thanks so much! This really helps spreading the word.

@garritfra excellent article given what has happened to Gab and Parler. πŸ‘

@garritfra Amazing post!
Totally agree with all the reasons you expose there

@garritfra just a heads up, the link from the home page directs to different article.

@tolmie which link do you mean?

(I just switched the design of the blog, maybe that fixed it)

@garritfra that must have fixed it, is all good now. πŸ‘

@tolmie must've been a copy paste error then. Thanks for noticing!
