my face when someone calls the new people "mastodon newcomers" instead of "fediverse newcomers" and normalises the idea that mastodon is the one and only federated social network to exist

@lynnesbian
Hey I'm new here and I keep seeing people say fediverse, could you explain what it means please?

@alice mastodon is part of the fediverse, and so are pleroma, peertube, gnu social, etc. the fediverse is a concept rather than an actual thing. a post from your instance, lesbiab.space, "federates" to other mastodon instances, pleroma instances, et cetera. all of these instances make up the fediverse. πŸ’œ
