The Jargon File

The Fediverse

A collection of federated social platforms where everybody hates each other for their software choices.

This structure maintains a tradition that we all vehemently hate each other and refuse to work with each other because the other guy is a twat.

If you use Hubzilla, you hate Diaspora, Ostatus, and RedMatrix.

If you use RedMatrix, you hate Hubzilla.

If you use Diaspora, you hate Friendica, Hubzilla, and RedMatrix.

If you use Friendica, you hate Diaspora.

If you use ostatus, you hate everyone else who uses ostatus.

This is the law of the fediverse, please bear this in mind. When picking fights with random strangers, make sure it's always based on nothing other than their software choices.

This has been a public service announcement on behalf of the fediverse. Thank you, and good day.
