How do I use this account on lemmy and vice-versa?
Is the upvote of lemmy the same as favorite of mastodon? (they do not sync) if not then what metric are these two uniquely gauged?

    Couple thoughts, because I read some common misunderstandings

    1. The Fediverse is a broad, generic concept like "democracy"

    No one is running "Fediverse" anywhere or is homed on a "Fediverse" instance

    1. is a protocol, a specification if you will

    It must be implemented in a specific software distribution (to varying degrees of accuracy) to exist

    Again, no one is running "ActivityPub" anywhere or is homed on an "ActivityPub" instance

    1. "Viewing content from other , one needs to follow a profile from that instance"


    "Explicitly viewing instance content, user needs to sign up on their instance"


    I can go to your instance in a web browser, to /public/local/ and read the public posts on your specific instance


    But no, I cannot see anyone's Home feed unless I follow that person, or follow hashtags which we use and Follow in common

    Which is the only reason I saw your post in the first place, the hashtag

    Who can see my posts? I am super curious as to how far this can travel? Learning the is interesting but a tad confusing for the laypeople like me. If anyone has an analogy do share. Visualizations help.

    Flipboard has begun testing ActivityPub federation of user accounts (

    Mike McCue - Hello Fediverse. I'm posting this tonight from my federated Flipboard profile! We're now testing our #ActivityPub integration starting with my account. You can follow me here to see all the stories I'm curating about things like startups, photography and of course, the #Fediverse. Curious to hear your thoughts on...

    Can you actually PeerTube from other ? As a Kbin user, I can see both Lemmy threads and Mastodon microblogs and I know Mastodon users can tag Lemmy (and maybe also Kbin) magazines to make threads there. Is there a way to interact with PeerTube like that?

    hello !

    We're the George Lansbury Memorial Trust, set up in 2012 to commemorate the life of George Lansbury; the life-long campaigner for social justice.

    George started life as a radical Liberal, became a socialist in the early 1890s & joined the Social Democratic Federation, Independent Labour Party, and then finally a Labour MP in 1922, leading the Party in the early 1930s.

    We organise events and promote his legacy
