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 #ActivityPub. Diaspora only federates using its own variant of the #OStatus standard. The two are not compatible.


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