  • I’m probably going to explain it poorly, because I’m not a computer science person, but the fediverse is the umbrella term for the all the independent and interconnected servers using the same protocol to communicate and build federated social media. Meaning it’s not centrally controlled, like we’re a bunch of ships at sea tied together instead of all using the same port owned by one entity (like reddit).

    So, Lemmy and a few others for something reddit-style, Mastodon for something twitter style, and so on. All would fall under the umbrella of the “fediverse”.

    As for getting involved, you could try to add content to attract people here and entertain those who already are (that’s what I’ve been doing), or if you’re tech-savvy, you could even create your own federated instance.
