I am wondering, why so few people use #Friendica. I personally started out on #Mastodon, but soon already moved on to Friendica, as it simply gives a huge extra load of features: compatible with all Fediverse #protocols (even #Diaspora), excellent feed reader functionality (in combination with #Nitter, #Bibliogram and #Invidious I get a feed from all my important #Twitter, #Instagram and #Youtube contacts directly in my Friendica timeline, without having an account on any of those commercial platforms), native Twitter bridge support (which I personally don't use), longer posts, a lot of extra #socialNetworking functionality like #forums, #events, #friendship, etc.
I do admit, that Friendica's #UI is much less modern and dynamic than Mastodon's, but this is the only downside I've found so far, and I'm also surprised, that no new UI has appeared within the last years, which would mitigate that.
I'd appreciate your views on that, and would be happy to hear other reasons for the fact that according to https://the-federation.info/, Mastodon currently has 440,713 monthly active users, while Friendica only has 1,770... 😀
I think that perhaps @hamishcampbell days it best with respect to the #addiction factor - #Dopamine is a powerful thing - just look at the having industry and the... Well, just consider that.
#Diaspora is not an #ActivityPub based system as of this juncture in time, and regarding the differences between how a post looks between say, Friendica and #Pleroma, or even Pleroma and other #Mastodon-esque platforms like #Misskey, etc., There are differences between all of them related to the features that one supports, and another doesn't.
This is a positive, market based incentivization for innovation.
Things will continue to evolve as long as there is interest in a platform and new ones come along all the time - there's no reason, for example, why #Planetary can't support its native #SSB while at the same time offering optional #Matrix protocol and ActivityPub integration, affording its users with a measure of interoperability within those spaces.
Looking back over just the last six months is quite encouraging when you consider the interplatform interactivity that users can take advantage of between projects like #PeerTube, #Pixelfed, #Funkwhale, #Lemmy, and the so-called microblogging platforms in the #Fediverse like Misskey, Mastodon, and Pleroma; while Friendica often serves as a bridge to those using Diaspora protocol and even the largely defacto deprecated #OStatus.
I think the time to begin migrating from the monolithic silos is **yesterday**, and continuing into **tomorrow**.
If all that someone wants is to communicate with their highschool buddies and neighbors, perhaps the best choice is indeed #Faceplant?
The Fediverse implies many different emerging and continuously maturing platforms that speak an assortment of federating protocols - not just ActivityPub, each with their own strengths and weaknesses, and with development being community informed and inspired.
Anything that resists that last very important point (community driven), simply gets forked, and that to happens all the time - success is based on merit.
What were really taking about here isn't which platforms are ready at this moment for the non-apathetic, concerned userbase to begin their egress from the monolithic silos, but rather, how we can facilitate the ingress of onboarders in becoming comfortable using rapidly evolving platforms that obviate #Faceplant, and #Reddit, and #YouTube, and #Twatter, and #InstaSPAM, and #Whassup, and #Pinterest, and... ad nauseum.
I hope that helps! 😀
