Don't mind me doing a test share of current social media shenanigans
while I work through how to use Hubzilla in the first place!
For anyone that is following me to Hubzilla etc. from Facebook, there'll be a lot that's different. The most important thing for you to note is that you cannot change your privacy settings after you post something!
Unlike Facebook where they only have to deal with themselves, federated and decentralised networks have to deal with lots of different places.
This is not necessarily a bad thing - how many times have you been on a comment thread where someone has done a dirty delete? It provides a sense of accountability. Maybe I'll finally be able to stop flying off the cuff like I tend to in the comments...
