After more than three years of not using , I decided to make it kinda sorta official:

I feel Diaspora developers are being difficult about implementing , which they could do for public posts and private messages.

I remember Diaspora being the biggest FLOSS social network and being somewhat smug about it, especially in any interoperability discussions. It's interesting to see the tables turned nowadays...

Still, hoping beyond hope they change tack.

I registered on some Diaspora instance I don't remember the name of when I was literally like 10 years old, so basically as soon as the project launched. I think it's pretty demotivating to join a Mastodon/Pleroma/PeerTube/Pixelfed/Mobilizon/Lemmy etc. instance if you remember that there was a project called Diaspora working in a similar way that sort of failed and there is no hype around it anymore…

@rysiek That's why I really hope they will change they mind about ActivityPub…

@Rysiekúr Memesson "Difficult" is putting it lightly, considering it's complete denial afaicr ;)

@rysiek concerning this topic I'm always saying: It's a decision made by the Diaspora team that has to be respected. But of course I - personally - am sad about this decision.

I still think that many of the reasons not to support AP aren't really a problem and the rest could be solved as well. However, I will not do anything to persuade them, but of course I would support them if they would change their mind.

If you need to, you can always connect to Diaspora using friendica yourself. But there is not too much to find anyway, unfortunately.

@AndiS @rysiek Yeah, I know. In fact I'm one of the core coders of Friendica 😁 Concerning the posts from Diaspora: In November around 20% of the posts on my system had been using the Diaspora protocol. 17% had been using the old Friendica protocol and 62% had been done via ActivityPub. (Including newer Friendica installations, in fact 27% of all posts had been done by Friendica contacts).

It's just like always: You have to find the content.

Ah, true, should have recognized the Avatar 😁

Ragarding, you having 20ish % Diaspora contacts. That must be because you have been using distributed social networks when Diaspora was "the thing" already. I n comparison, I have zero... at @sunnywines
