The Fediverse is more than Mastodon. Let’s get that straight away. Mastodon is just the most popular right now, because of the Twitter exodus.

There are lots of other fediverse platforms that are neat in their own right. And best of all, because of activitypub they all talk to each other!

What’s The Fediverse?

The Fediverse is the vast array of servers that communicate via the ActivityPub or OStatus protocols. (Generally speaking, unless you’re making or editing software to interact with the fediverse, you don’t need to know what those are.) There are lots of different kinds of server software on the fediverse, like Pixelfed, Pleroma, Misskey, or WriteFreely.
