Which federated social media is the most user friendly to you?
Sharing is very appreciated.
Please share your experiences too if you don't mind.
I chose Mastodon.
Let me share with you. Mastodon is the user friendliest federated social networking site to me. Easy to join, easy to make friends, easy to post and share everything, quickly and understandably.
As a comparison, with respects to the developers, when I found fediverse at the very beginning, it was Diaspora and I really had no idea how I shall use it, nor I got friends I could chit chat with like I did with Mastodon.
@ademalsasa pretty much the same experience i had
someone mentioned hashtags but as a purely personal thing i've never, ever found hashtags useful except for some fairly high-context specific ones like fediblock where i'm already invested in what's going on anyway and already have a non-trivial background to know what to look for
@ademalsasa While I don't use it any more, I actually found #Diaspora to be more user friendly than Mastodon. I love that they had you enter a handful of hashtags that you were interested in that they then used to suggest people to start following from the beginning, then they followed those hashtags for you so you had content in your (single column!) timeline from the start, then you could easily create your own groups (aspects) to post to. I still miss all of these things in #Mastodon.
@email@example.com for me its misskey. have been using mastodon and pleroma for a while. mastodon is a nice entry point when coming from twitter but it also feels somewhat restricted.
also i think this is impossible to answer objectively because user friendly is such a subjective thing
@ademalsasa IIn generally, my experiences are very positive. Lovely people, no spam. Very interesting folks, all in all joining the fediverse is a triple win situation for me, IMHO. :D 👍
@nemo I have a new post about job here https://floss.social/@ademalsasa/106720861590118891 you can participate, nemo. If you have more sources to add, please kindly add.
@ademalsasa I said Mastodon but I think PixelFed is really promising too. I’ve never tried Diaspora so I can’t comment on it.
