If you want to use the Fediverse through a Facebook-style interface, you may want to try Friendica.
Some good instances to sign up at:
You can use Friendica through the @fedilab app.
It federates through ActivityPub with Mastodon etc and it also lets you follow RSS feeds as if they were users.
The developers are very active with regular new releases.
Hey, not everyone wants a Facebook interface :)
One of the nice things about the Fediverse is letting people on different interfaces talk to each other on a single network.
Also, Friendica might be useful if you know someone who wants to leave Facebook. The jump from FB to Friendica is much smaller than from FB to Mastodon etc.
@switchingsocial actually I think dica is a better choice then fedilab. Though I mostly use mobile browser to browse friendica
@switchingsocial that's really good to know, thank you!
> It federates through ActivityPub with Mastodon
Careful with this. I submitted a bug report on this not long ago, I'm not sure if it's fixed yet. Short story is: if you delete someone you follow via ActivityPub, Friendica may/will delete any of your own posts that were shared with that contact (even public posts).
Before setting up a Mastodon instance I had a Friendica instance, and ran into this problem following Mastodon users.
Otherwise Friendica is great.
mastodon.at is a microblogging site that federates with most instances on the Fediverse.
