How it works?

[www.monster-network.com]

In a centralized, boring world

millions of users are concentrated on the same popular website. They entrust their communications to a big company whose business model is to allow «free» usage. In return users are shown advertisements and their data is sold to marketers and other interested parties. Such websites control a big portion of the Internet. Unfortunately, website owners are unable (or unwilling) to secure their systems, and gaping holes in their networks allow third parties to access all your precious personal communications

What a mess!

All nodes are connected

On Friendica and other federated networks

there's no giant website. Instead there are many small interconnected websites. No matter where your friends register, you willl be able to follow them from your node (a node, also called server, is any website in federating world). Think of nodes as online planets - each independent, with its own community and rules, yet they all are part of Friendica. This approach allows to decentralize human communications and make the Internet a healthier space

Interesting, tell me more!

Friendica is part of the Fediverse

To make it even better

You have 500 characters. You can adjust the thumbnails of your pictures with focal points. You can use custom emojis, hide things behind spoiler warnings and choose who sees a given post. Messed it up? You can delete & redraft for quick corrections.

Wow, why did not I try it before?
