Blog posts about social networks
Well I am still preparing a blog post about how I see the pump.io network now (TL;DR usable, strong potential, needs users and love ), but first I needed to set the context. So here you are my very personal views on #socialnetworks:
Enough for today, I hope I can finish the pump.io post soon for my readers - if any lasts after those two loooong posts :s
tradem shared this.With regard of the software, I have no reasons to prefer pump.io.
(No deep knowledge of any social network in particular).
It's just that, because of the Identi.ca migration, it happened that I began curious to tinker with it instead of with Diaspora or Friendica.
It's the same thing as if you need to edit video and you know that a friend uses Kdenlive, you give it a try. If it happens that your friend uses Openshot, you would begin to use Openshot instead of Kdenlive. And after that, you just keep on using the one that you installed (lazynes...).
In social networks, in addition to that, you create links with people, so if it's enjoying, there's little motivation to go to other place or try a different software.
I know it's not fair for fantastic projects as Friendica and Diaspora but.. what can I say... these things happen.thanks for that insight.
My decision to use pump.io stems from its decision not to be just a tentacle reaching into walled gardens, but instead provide some robust and expandable base.
Friendica limits itself too much by trying to be a native in every network, and Dispora seemed to be abandoned by its creators and failed to be truly decentralized even more than the old status.net.
- After reading this article, I noticed that we really need to get free and open-source computers (from the chip, passing through the BIOS, up to the peripherals). Time to convince some Chinese tech startup! #LibreHardware
