A big difference I noticed between the #fediverse and mainstream #socialmedia namely #instagram is the way "content" is edited. Insta is very visual so everything is wrapped into a picture. Even if the media type doesn't fit into a picture like text. Everything is cramped into this visual format. The fediverse is different. You choose the platform fitting your style. A little text, #mastodon, a lot of text, maybe #pleroma. Your cute photo...#pixelfed. All inside the same social network.
@witziege Isn't it grand? :) I really love the Fediverse. It "feels" like an internet from a much earlier age when people were proud of thinking differently and rejecting mainstream ideas in favor of their own :)
@witziege It's not paradoxical at all. However I think there are some broad conceptual barriers that need to be overcome first. For starters, try talking to a non technical person about the fediverse and explaining what an instance means and why choosing one matters. I guarantee total deer caught in headlights mode in 30 seconds or less.
@witziege And, to be clear, I think these hurdles WILL be overcome, but until then, I will enjoy the fediverse being the crazy collection of delicious weirdos and free thinkers it is today.
A little bit of Monica in my life
A little bit of Erica by my side
A little bit of Rita is all I need
A little bit of Tina is what I see
A little bit of Sandra in the sun
A little bit of Mary all night long
A little bit of Jessica, here I am
A little bit of you makes me your man

@witziege why not "a lot of text... a blog post"? Both mastodon and #pleroma are for microblogging, so not the most suitable for extensive posts – although that doesn't seem to stop some self righteous... individuals.
@vesperto The point of my post was that the fediverse offers more variety to display your message in a way you find suiting it the most. And that's entirely up to the user.
Magdeburg im Fediverse - Machteburch.social ist eine Mastodon-Instanz für Magdeburg und alle, die Magdeburg mögen, oder sich mit Magdeburg verbunden fühlen.
