Die meisten Leute erzählen dir, dass das Fediverse Freie Software ist, föderiert und frei von Werbung, Tracking und so weiter ist.
Aber was bedeutet das?


Die Email-Allegorie

Alle wissen, man braucht nicht denselben Email-Anbieter um über Email zu kommunizieren Man kann eine Email von riseup.net zu gmail.com senden und anders herum. Das ist in etwa wie "Föderation" im Fediverse funktioniert. "Föderation" bedeutet lediglich, dass verschiedene dezentralisierte Server oder Instanzen miteinander auf Basis eines Protokolls kommunizieren können. Genau zum Emailversand Protokolle wie POP, IMAP oder SMTP verwendet werden, benutzt das Fediverse meistens ActivityPub.

Freie Software

Mauptartikel: Was ist freie Software?

Jedes Software im Fediverse ist freie Software

Free software is software that follows the 4 freedoms defined by the Free Software Foundation:

  • Freedom 0: The freedom to run the program as you wish, for any purpose.
  • Freedom 1: The freedom to study how the program works, and change it so it does your computing as you wish. Access to the source code is a precondition for this.
  • Freedom 2: The freedom to redistribute copies so you can help your neighbor.
  • Freedom 3: The freedom to distribute copies of your modified versions to others. By doing this you can give the whole community a chance to benefit from your changes. Access to the source code is a precondition for this.

If you yourself can't read or write code, so you can't study, change and distribute the program, you still have some advantages. You can trust the program, because other people studied the code to make sure it does (only) what it's supposed to do. You can request a feature from the developers and if the community deems that feature a good idea it will often be adopted.

No spying, no ads, no algorithm, no shadow-banning, ...

The Fediverse runs on donations, not on selling your data, so there are no targeted ads. In fact, there are no ads at all.
What you see on the Fediverse only depends on who you follow, not on algorithms or shadow-banning.
