Fediverse: Decentralized Social Networking and Services

Speaker:LuftHans, LH
Category:Community & Activism

The Fediverse is a collection of decentralized, digital, and social spaces. Disparate services can interact by using standard protocols such as those from ActivityPub.

Free Software projects such as Mastodon, Nextcloud, Pleroma, PixelFed, Plume, PeerTube and Friendica are helping us decentralize the web. Most offer hosted solutions. All enable us to self-host.

Attendees will learn about:

  • advantages of decentralized social networking
  • history of the Fediverse and decentralized social networking
  • pros and cons of self-hosting
  • data ownership
  • list of some services in the Fediverse
  • how they can join and participate in decentralizing the web
