@taamas I intentionally wrote this for people who have never heard of us before, so feel free to share it!
@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.😅
@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?
> Could I translate it to Spanish to post it in a Facebook page?
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.😅
> 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 Got it! I actually was just reading about it here: https://write.privacytools.io/paulakreuzer/the-fediverse-for-the-advanced
There you have :D
(I'm trying to convince more people on those social networks to join the fediverse)
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
