Collection of quotes about Diaspora

This post is a collection of quotes about Diaspora (founded in 2010). There are 4 quotes listed below. License: CC BY-SA 4.0


1. "Diaspora is intended to address privacy concerns related to centralized social networks. It is constructed of a network of nodes, called pods, hosted by many different individuals and institutions. Each node operates a copy of the Diaspora software, which is a personal web server with social networking capabilities. Users of the network can host a pod on their own server or create an account on any existing pod of their choice." (Wikipedia: Diaspora (social network), 1.31.24 UTC 01:35)


2. "Posts in Diaspora can include hashtags and 'mentions' (a username preceded by an @ symbol). Users can upload photos to posts, and can format text and links using Markdown. Posts can be propagated to connected accounts on WordPress, Twitter and Tumblr." (Wikipedia: Diaspora (social network), 1.31.24 UTC 01:35)


3. "Friendica instances are also a part of the Diaspora social network since Friendica natively supports the Diaspora protocol." (Wikipedia: Diaspora (social network), 1.31.24 UTC 01:35)
