What is dispora? Is it the Same as mastodon?

@techit Diaspora is an open source federated version of Facebook, similar to how Mastodon is the same to Twitter

@matt could I use dispora to follow mastodon accounts?

@techit no. Mastodon only federates over . Diaspora only federates using its own variant of the standard. The two are not compatible.



Some software, like and , is compatible with both federation standards. too if the instance and channel uses the add-on for it, although I'm told that can break compatibility with some features of , its native federation protocol.
