My name is Anna, I'm a 19-year-old girl.

I came here to seek peace and serenity.

I draw pixel art as a hobby.
I also write stories and draw traditional art, on rare occasion.

I 'm very shy, but I love meeting new faces and bonding with people.


@abhishek Welcome to the fediverse! ❤️ Why don't you do an post to introduce yourself to everyone? 😉

@HeartClock08 Hi everyone. This is my #introductions to you all. Feel free to send me oneliners. If it connects with me, I'll reply. And what is Fediverse by the way? Is it related to Fedora Linux?

@abhishek I think you should have made your introduction post independent instead of replying to mine. X3

But anyways, the Fediverse is basically an ensemble of interconnected servers. Mastodon is part of it. ^^

@abhishek @HeartClock08 The fediverse is a collection of services that talk to each other.

Imagine being able to subscribe to a YouTuber from Twitter. You can do that with Peertube and Mastodon.

So the cool thing about Mastodon is that it isn't just a network on its own. The developers implemented support for ActivityPub, so anyone from instance A can talk to someone from instance B.

That also works with other services like Frendica (FOSS Facebook): as they implement the same standard, someone from Frendica can like, favourite or boost a post from a Mastodon user.

And that's the beauty of federation. It isn't just one service. It's a collection of services all talking to each other. Anyone can start up a Mastodon, Plemora (lightweight Mastodon) or Frendica instance on their servers.

Compare this to something like Facebook. Someone from Facebook can't interact with someone on Twitter. When talking about those platforms, you will commonly hear the phrase 'walled garden'.

Hope this helped!

@resynth1943 and thank you very much to share the video as Indivious instead of YouTube, Resynth. You saved us from nonfree JavaScript.

@ademalsasa @abhishek @HeartClock08 Haha, thank you; I do it a lot more often these days :blobcat: also I probably tell @TheMainOne off when he sends YouTube links :blobcatknife:

@resynth1943 since I knew Invidious for the first time ever, I share YouTube links by Indivious name instead. Even I share my YouTube Channels to people with Invidious URLs up to today. To me, what you were doing with Invidious is valuable. Thanks for sharing!
