I had an unintended insight to the public stream of the Diaspora network. I permitted all from internet to send me their channel posts. Was not what I really wanted and a great mistake. A few hours after changing that I noticed that I had received the public stream of Diaspora network on my network strem. A massive amount of post. 10 if not 100 times more than I see in the public stream of Hubzilla.
Ok, so I could see what is going on on this „other network“. And I was shocked. And now I know the real difference between Hubzilla and Diaspora. Beside the technical things it is: The quality of posts.
There were so many posts from Diaspora. But what? No discussions! Hundreds of single Posts with no reaction beside Likes. Pictures and Comics. And a massive amount of naked girls. Fortunately closed and marked with N S F W. But they even were nit safe for my wife watching over my shoulder, too
Freaky. Almost like on facebook. A massive waste of lifetime.
A bunch of bullshit posts. Thats what I get from Diaspora. So I am glad o be a member of the Hubzilla Grid with so many great Hubzillians and really much interesting content and discussions. And that‘s it: The people mattersand the people make the social network.
