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.

@Zergling_man thanks, I got new friends. This speed to make new friends was what I could not get at Diaspora at that time.

@schestowitz @velartrill @thor

@ademalsasa @thor @velartrill @schestowitz To be fair, that's more of a community issue than a software issue, unless the software actively hampers attempts at communication, like a certain rather famous one... Or two...

@Zergling_man I am talking as a whole (gestalt) here without making difference between parts. That was my personal experience.

@thor @velartrill @schestowitz

@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
