I wonder if any of the federated FB alternatives would take off if they didn't have such shit names
Mastodon is evocative and memorable
Disporia, GNUSocial, etc is not
Not even sure if I spelled disporia right

@sir GNU Social also suffered from chronic FOSS lack of UI design syndrome. Mastodon's web UX is far from perfect, but it's pretty usable, and the mobile apps are about the same. I tried to learn AndStatus a couple of times and could never get the hang of it.

@sir imo diaspora just needs to get rid of inline images (seriously a whole feed out of gifs and highres photos!!), get some emojis and finally should get an api for apps...

@sir oh right and gifs should not always autoplay
