Hallo #Fediverse, leider etwas spät aber...
MORGEN am 23.08.2019 an der #Katharinentreppe gegenüber des Haupteinganges des #Dortmund|er #Hauptbahnhof|s findet eine #Kundgebung von #BlockaDo statt. Mit dabei sind auch #AutonomeAntifa170 und ##FridaysForFuture und andere die ich nicht aufgezählt habe. Es geht gegen den Aufmarsch der Partei "Die Rechte". Erscheint zahlreich! Aloha


¡Buenos dias #fediverso! Que sea un jueves propicio y genial para todos
Good morning #fediverse! May it be an auspicious Thursday and great for everyone

N00b #question:

I just created a #Pixelfed account and everything is hunky-dory, except that it doesn't seem to federate with anything! Not with other Pixelfed nodes and not with other federated platforms. All I can see is the local results - and that's slim pickings at best. Is this a permissions issue related to my pixelfed server of choice only?

So, to rephrase this as a question: how do I find content from other Pixelfed instances, and how do I follow people on different #ActivityPub platforms?

Do you wish the Fediverse had a Reddit-style link sharing and discussion system?

There are two in development, Prismo and Lemmy:

Uebrigens: Ich nutze Twitter eigentlich fast nur noch zum Lesen und Retweeten.

Ansonsten bin ich im #Fediverse bei #Friendica und auch bei #Mastodon.


Fediverse admins,

Please block "", they are spamming massive numbers of fake followers (I've just had 2000 fake followers for example).

Wer weg von #Facebook oder #Twitter will oder frueher bei #GooglePlus war und nach Alternativen sucht:
Facebook: #Friendica auf
Twitter: #Mastodon auf

Join the #Fediverse today! 😀

This is really awesome, as visualizations go. Unfortunately currently limited to only a few of the platforms, and of course you can't really draw a picture of the federated web, but still a truer picture of a #federated network, than those simplified artistic views.

The #fediverse, it's like a living organism ❤

Fediverse Conf - Feneas forum

Would you like to see a #Fediverse #conference happen in #Barcelone in 2020? Come in and throw in some ideas!

Ich habe es noch nicht aktiviert, da ich noch keinen Nutzen habe. Was schoen waere, waere Support fuer #OpenID dann kann die #Fediverse sich einloggen (solange ein Account diese Id zugewiesen hat).



Wow, was ist denn hier passiert, vier Milliarden registrierte Nutzer im mir bekannten Fediverse ...

Momentan kennt dieser Knoten 4.281 Knoten mit insgesamt registrierten Nutzern, die die folgenden Plattformen verwenden:

Friendica (360/4516)
diaspora (294/651292)
red (3/43)
hubzilla (269/9095)

Parteien im Fediverse

Ich habe gerade zufällig gesehen, daß die Grünen eine eigene #Mastodon Instanz betreiben. Sind noch andere Parteien mit eigenen Instanzen im #Fediverse vertreten? Die #Piraten wären doch prädestiniert dafür.

Federated code hosting

Are you interested in #federated #code hosting? This term means a site like #GitHub, #GitLab, #Cogs or #Gitea - but instead of all servers being an individual part of the #web, they talk to each other just like servers in the #fediverse. Imagine being able to open issues, make pull requests and engage in discussion, to any other repository from your own personal code hosting server?

Approximately one year ago #Microsoft bought GitHub, kicking of something that become a group of people discussing formalizing a specification for federated code hosting platforms. This specification work ended up with the name #ForgeFed and is currently developed by the #Peers community. The end result will be a set of extensions on top of #ActivityPub that allows any code hosting platform to federate with any other code hosting platform.

ForgeFed is using the brand new #Feneas forum for discussing various spec items. Everybody is welcome to participate, though especially good would be to get people from the various code hosting platforms to give their thoughts about what they would be happy to implement.

Join the discussion here:

The ForgeFed repository for the specification is hosted at notabug.

We have #fediverse platforms already in production and still under active development to replace traditional social media. Who do Sanger and TBL think we need something brand new? What's this boycott PR thing to boot? Help make the fediverse viable guys!

I woke from a dream where the #diaspora API was being deployed (which I think may actually be happening soon, right #diaspora-dev ?) so I revived my website comments system based on the API, polished up the #kotlin implementation, and then also wrote a #dotnet version so I could make an #fediverse app in #AvaloniaUI . Yeah I'm in a coding mood 😀.

so psa: eugen hard severed working with purism when they made it clear they had no intention to keep far-right and nazi assholes off of librem one

so maybe if you want to criticize Eugen and/or Mastodon, stick to things that are actually true and not a bunch of falsehoods and frankly offensive conspiracy theories #mastodon #mastodev #mastometa #fediverse #floss #foss #women


Friendica 2019.06 Released

Thanks everyone who contributed, be it directly by committing patches or new features, doing translations or reporting issues.

And now, we happily announce the availability of Friendica 2019.06. It contains many bug fixes, enhancements of existing functionality and some new features. The most noteworthy changes since the last release in March are:
  • Added native two-factor authentication
  • Added reshare counts
  • Added mascot to error pages (thanks to @lostinlight)
  • Moved Friendica private message and contact request to ActivityPub
You can find a complete overview of the changes in the CHANGELOG file.

How to Update

Updating from old Friendica versions

If you are updating from an older version than the 2018.09 release, please first update your Friendica instance to that version as there were several important changes in that version.

Please further note, that since Friendica 3.6 we use Composer for dependency management. If you are updating via git, you have to remember to update the dependencies as well.

Pre-Update Procedures

Ensure that the last backup of your Friendica installation was done recently. While testing, we did not encounter problems, but better safe than sorry.

With this release we raised the hard requirements to PHP 7. If you are still using PHP 5.6+, this version won’t work anymore on your system and we urge you to upgrade to PHP 7.1 at least.

Using Git

Updating from the git repositories should only involve a pull from the Friendica core repository and addons repository. Remember to also update the dependencies with composer.
cd friendica
git pull
bin/composer.phar install
cd addon
git pull
If you want to switch the branch (e.g. if you helped testing the RC code) please do so after the pull using git checkout master (or develop).

Be aware that the .htaccess file was removed from the git repository in the 2019.01 version. You might have to restore yours from a backup (if you have done local changes) or from the .htaccess-dist if you had not done it before.

Using the Archive Files

If you had downloaded the source files in an archive file (zip or tar.gz) please download the current version of the archive ( and friendica-addons-2019.06.tar.gz) and unpack it on your local computer.

As many files got deleted or moved around, please upload the unpacked files to a new directory on your server (say friendica_new) and copy over your existing configuration (config/local.config.php and config/addon.config.php) and .htaccess files. Afterwards rename your current Friendica directory (e.g. friendica) to friendica_old and friendica_new to friendica.

The files of the dependencies are included in the archive (make sure you are using the friendica-full-2019.06 archive), so you don’t have to worry about them.

Please be aware of the changes in the configuration format in the 2019.03 version. You should follow the instructions linked from your admin panel as soon as possible to move your configuration to the new location.

Post Update Tasks

The database update should be applied automatically, but maybe it gets stuck. If you encounter this, please initiate the DB update manually from the command line by running the script
bin/console dbstructure update
from the base of your Friendica installation. If the output contains any error message, please let us know using the channels mentioned below.

How to Contribute

If you want to contribute to the project, you don’t need to have coding experience. There are a number of tasks listed in the issue tracker with the label “Junior Jobs” we think are good for new contributors. But you are by no means limited to these – if you find a solution to a problem (even a new one) please make a pull request at github or let us know in the development forum.

Contribution to Friendica is also not limited to coding. Any contribution to the documentation, the translation or advertisement materials is welcome or reporting a problem. You don’t need to deal with Git(Hub) or Transifex if you don’t like to. Just get in touch with us and we will get the materials to the appropriate places.

Thanks everyone who helped making this release possible and have fun!

Dear #fediverse, I'm looking for ways/ideas/plans to collect rainwater for hot summers. Something I can make this summer. Looking for ideas like heightened planters that collect excess water from the soil on top. Those kind of things.

@Steffen K9 🐙 Es ist wie immer "traue keiner #Statistik, die du nicht selbst..." 😀
Letztendlich ist das oben ja ohnehin nur ein Schnappschuss, was meine Instanz gerade "sieht" vom #Fediverse. Dazu

Auf hab ich vorhin auch noch etwas recherchiert...aber auch dort wird ja explizit darauf hingewiesen, dass die Daten nicht vollständig sind, da Datenübermittlung freiwillig.

Wo auch immer die #Wahrheit dann wirklich ist...

Aktuelle Föderationsstatistik dieser Instanz mit dem #Fediverse:
äußerer Kreis: Instanzen (Summe 4188)
inner Kreis: Benutzer (Summe 2771530)

Die Übermacht von #Mastodon in beiden Kennzahlen ist schon immens...

5 Years, 5 ambitious alternatives.

2015 - Hubzilla
2016 - Mastodon
2017 - Pleroma

Last week, Mastodon adopted a beginner-friendly default interface 👍

So, maybe this would be a good time to spread the word about Mastodon to a wider audience?

If you're on Facebook/Twitter, you could do a little post about Masto with a link to ? And a link to a good instance running 2.9 or above?

(Also, I think some people were doing Mastodon posters?)

If people hear about Mastodon from many different sources, they are more likely to try it.

Hey #Ruby devs, if you're looking to help out the #fediverse, check out #prismo! It's a link sharing platform, similar to or hacker news, that federates over #ActivityPub.

The lead (and only) dev has to back off development for a while, but it would be great to spin up a team that could pick up the slack and keep the project moving.

You can find the repo here:

and the matrix room here:!

Woo! As you may have seen from that previous boost, Mastodon 2.9 is now out, featuring a new single column interface:

This is, IMHO, a huge step forward for getting non-technical people onto Mastodon 👍

Instead of the Tweetdeck-style interface, there's now a default single-column timeline which is much less scary.

(The multicolumn original is still an option in Settings, and those who currently use multicolumn will continue to see it by default.)

Are there theme developers out there that want to create additional themes for Friendica?

It would be great to have some more crowdpower on that topic. If you are interested, just visit

Hi #fediverse ! I am seeking opinions on the terms of service for Taguette (free/open source qualitative analysis tool)

We have a hosted version of Taguette that people can use for free and I took a crack at writing TOS for that:

If anyone wants to give me an opinion about this, I would *very* much appreciate it -- it's my first time doing anything like this and I basically just riffed off the Open Source Institute & Glitch TOS


Filter our contacts publications

Hello !Friendica Support

Is there a way on #friendica to configure filters on each of your contacts, to be able to see in our "timeline" only some specific posts?
For instance, I'd like to follow one developer of a #fediverse project, but I really don't care about it's sex life. So I'd like to configure the connection to only display posts with specific hashtags.
How would you do that ?
(FYI, this feature is available in #hubzilla and it's called connfilter)

So Gab is coming to the fediverse by converting their system from proprietary to a fork of Mastodon (why a fork?). I have thoughts but umm should be interesting... #fediverse

#Lemmy is an open federated alternative to Reddit and is currently early in development. You can follow the project at:


There's also the open federated #Prismo, which is in a more advanced state of development:


You can try Prismo at:

(If you copy a Prismo user or post address into the Mastodon search box and click search, you can interact with it.)

(Thanks to @gaja for info about Lemmy.)
