Jailbreak time. Are we ready to migrate to Friendica?

We are looking for people interested migrating out of FB, specifically to decentralised social network run under Friendica. If there is enough of us (say, 10 ppl) ready to spend some time and effort, we can go along the following list:
1. Set up a FB group for future migrants. If FB blocks it, we may fallback to some external forum.
2. Evaluate conditions needed for being happy Friendica users.
3. Evaluate resources we need to fulfill the said conditions.
4. Gather supporters.
5. Pool resources.
6. Set up a test server (for those who do not want to meddle with own local server).
7. Teach and support those who do.

Certain features of Friendica we may be interested in:

    • Decentralised architecture with no central authority or ownership
    • Extensible via third-party plugin modules and themes. A growing number of both are currently available.
    • Server-to-server military grade message encryption (on supported networks)
    • Private conversation groups – on these pages all communications are restricted to group members – similar to Google+ “circles” or Diaspora “aspects”
    • Optionally “expire” old content after a certain period of time. The content is also removed from all other Friendica servers which might be holding a copy.
    • Location and other private information embedded in uploaded photos from cell phones is stripped
    • Download your personal data. It all belongs to you.
    • Facebook contacts and posts may be imported and become an extension of the Friendica network

  1. […] FreeLab 2014 lanceerde in September 2014 nog een oproep om op FB een groep op te richten om FB te verlaten en naar Friendica te migreren, wat het zal worden is afwachten. Zie ‘Jailbreak time. Are we ready to migrate to Friendica?‘ […]
