Most of us on there are Friendfeed refugees that needed a place to call home (that wasn't Facebook), after Facebook killed off Friendfeed. It's also a decent substitute for Medium, supporting similar style long form articles (Texts), formatted with markdown.
Feature-wise, it's a bit like if Twitter, Facebook, and Medium were whipped up together in a blender, but without any of the stupid corporate BS or drama. It was built by a fellow Friendfeed refugee who fully understood what it was that we all really wanted.
It has an API
, if you want to roll your own tools and apps that can work with it, or you can use this guide and example
to import your activities from your other social networks and websites, with IFTTT.
It has groups, but they aren't listed anywhere officially, and you can't search for them, which is why I created this group
to catalog the English speaking ones. Between this and the Firehose
, they would be your best options for finding people to follow.
Or you could follow me
, or at the very least hit up my subscriptions list
, which has most of the English speakers on Mokum.
