• fediverse accounts

last modified June 5, 2018 by strypey

The fediverse is an informal name for a federated social network, made up of many thousands of independent websites. It was coined to describe a meta-network made up of sites running apps that inter-operated using the OStatus federation standard created for StatusNet, in constrast with the other meta-network of sites federating with the Diaspora protocol ("the federation"). Now, a new federation standard called ActivityPub has been endorsed by the W3C, and by the end of the year, it will be supported by all the fediverse and federation apps (except Diaspora).

I (Strypey) am most active on the NZOSS Mastodon site, which can connect with a Fediverse of other social apps, including GNU Social (originally using the OStatus standard, soon to be superseded by the ActivityPub standard). If you are using one of these apps, my Mastodon address @mastodon.nzoss.nz is probably the best way to follow or @mention me.
