The Fediverse refers to an ecosystem of decentralised social media servers that are largely interoperable with each other (that is, they federate) because they all adhere to a common ActivityPub protocol. This offers an alternative, non-commercial model for social media, as no one server is required to scale to support (and moderate) millions. Overall I find the Fediverse a much more chilled and pleasant experience than mainstream sites like Twitter.

Did you know? I also have a wiki page called ‘Fediverse’! If you want to check that out, you can do so here.
