The Federation refers to a global social network composed by nodes talking together. Each of them is an installation of a software which supports the same protocols.
This global social network foster's freedom, independence and free speech. It is a place where you can follow and talk to people from all over the world without beeing locked up to a single service provider and without any kind of censorship. Together we seize the means of communication, and create real democracy online.
There is a huge range of social networks, which you can either install by your own or, if your prefer, join one of the many existing nodes. Some examples are:
- Diaspora (some public server you can join)
- Friendica (some public server you can join)
- GNU Social (some public server you can join)
- Mastodon (some public server you can join)
I have a account at many of these networks and link to some of them on the main page. All my blog posts are send to a special Friendica account. I have chosen Friendica because it allows users to interact with my blog posts not only with a Friendica account but also with a Diaspora, GNU Social or Mastodon account. Feel free to subscribe to this account if you use on one of these networks and want to get updates about new blog posts in order participate in conversations around it.
If you are new to the Federation, then this is the perfect time to join me. ;-) Just pick one of the public servers on one of these networks and get started.
Once you follow me through one of these networks you can discuss my articles and exchange your ideas with a large group of people sharing similiar values.
