I've been through this kinda rigmarole before when I tried using diaspora*, and the end result was that I completely abandoned it because I wasn't getting any meaningful interactions out of it compared to Twitter. Which was a shame, because I really liked diaspora*.
The problem, of course, is that you will inevitably gravitate to whichever platform nets you more interaction. And crossposts really don't engender organic engagement. They feel robotic and distant, largely because they're just that
@coloco Yes... there are different reasons for each platform. But if you use two platforms for the same reason, you start to want to combine them, or to only use one of them.
(google translate: "Sí ... hi ha diferents motius per a cada plataforma. Però si utilitzeu dues plataformes per la mateixa raó, podeu començar a combinar-les o utilitzar-ne només un.")
@coloco I liked diaspora*... but I used it incorrectly. Simply posting automatically to many networks means you are not truly engaging with those networks. Also, the translation is semi-automatic.
(google translate: "Em va agradar #Diaspora ... però la vaig usar incorrectament. Simplement publicant automàticament en moltes xarxes significa que no està realment implicat amb aquestes xarxes. A més, la traducció és semi-automàtica.")
