The Fediverse is a Social Media site - so like Facebook - but better in every way. :smiley:

I like the email analogy “You can interact with people on different servers like you were on the same”, but that probably wouldn’t be the first thing I’d say about the Fediverse.

Maybe something like:
Imagine Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Youtube and so on were all linked together, but there is no big company behind it.

Actually I don’t think it makes sense to keep the two discussions seperate after all.
