ı think Lemmy and Mastodon


Friendica, Pleroma and Peertube, as far as I’m concerned.

Lemmy’s quite interesting, too.

Lemmy, Mastodon, Peertube, Pixelfed

I use Mastodon most regularly and Lemmy second. So far I haven’t seen a lot of good content on PeerTube.


Actually the content on PeerTube is improving lately with more quality videos. A major current problem is that federation between PeerTube servers is low. Sometimes for understandable reasons. As a consequence the user often has to rely on something like Sepia Search to find content.

Do you count Lemmy as part of fediverse? it’s not federating (yet?) with Mastodon, Pleroma, whatever

According to the Fediverse definition it is. The definition is: ‘… able to communicate over the boundaries of the instances because the software running on the servers supports one or more communication protocols which follow an open standard’. These open standards are: ActivityPub, Diaspora Network, OStatus and Zot.

Right but Lemmy is not federating with the known fediverse yet so I call it lemmyverse

Fediverse is just any software that federates, not necessarily with ActiviyPub. Using “Fediverse” to mean ActivityPub only is a misuse of the term.

I really enjoy Matrix at the moment. It’s got quite a large community and there’s a channel for everything.

That’s federated but not fediverse. But Matrix is cool.

I’ve wondered more than once: why would “fediverse” only designate the ActivityPub ecosystem? The word does not convey this meaning, and there’s a growing numbers of gateways between ActivityPub and other federated platforms (eg. XMPP).

A community dedicated to fediverse news and discussion.

Fediverse is a portmanteau of “federation” and “universe”. It is a common, informal name for a federation of social network servers whose main purpose is microblogging, the sharing of short, public messages.
