Get Fedi’d!! The Explorographer is now on the Fediverse

The Fediverse, what is it?  Where is it?  How is it? Let’s take a closer look.

With the fall of most Social Media sites from my graces I have now embraced the Fediverse.  So, what is the Fediverse?  Well, it’s a decentralized platform for users to post content.  Decentralizing the servers means that no one server is the Fediverse.  In short, it’s many servers with many things all connected together. No corporate owner, no algorithm. You control what you see and pretty much how you see it.

For a deeper dive into the Fediverse, hit it up on google and you will find their wiki with all the information you could ever need.  It truly has been and eye-opening experience for me.   With that said, it reminds me of the early days of Google+ and the great communities that stemmed from it.  With like-minded, level-headed individuals getting together and reasonably conversing on the world.

Presently, Matthias Pfefferle & Automattic have come out with an ActivityPub plug-in for wordpress that allows you to integrate your site with the Fediverse.  Consequently, I am testing that right now with this post.  You can follow my work right through your favorite Mastodon server.   What is Mastodon?  Well, it’s a Fediverse server/instance similar to Twitter and without the aforementioned negatives.  As of now I am on an instance run by a friend called Mindly.Social.  You can find my profile there @ if you want to follow that profile.

All-in-all the Fediverse is a good thing and it’s finally being adopted by major sites and entities. Likewise, I think most people are saying enough is enough with social media sites like Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram and the Fediverse in my opinion is the way to go! Hopefully you will join me there as well.  Also, if you want to find your own instance to join, check out:  Mastodon – Decentralized social media ( Finally, don’t worry if you don’t understand it at first, jump in and get your feet wet!  The water is great!
