Exploring the Fediverse

Day 1 What is the Fediverse? The fediverse (federation + universe) is a collection of federated social networks running on free open software. That’s a bunch of jargon. Basically, different sites use the same social network software, and they can talk to each other. It’s an attempt at recreating the decentralized web. Some popular ones are Mastodon and Pleroma. First Dip into the Fediverse While browsing the Interwebs I’ve seen a couple of Mastodon instances here and there but I never really understood what they were.
