Diaspora in 2022 for me has had its ups and downs in terms of a social network.
Diaspora is a decentralized social network and that means good things and bad things about the administration of this network.
Bad thing, a dictator who administers a "pod" of which you are not a member can decide to "Ghoster" you, in short to make you disappear for the other users without warning them and without warning you. I have seen this happen this year.
On the other hand, if you are excluded, you can find another more open pod that will allow you to express yourself.
It's also the only social network where I've decided to ignore the woke trolls or the so-called "leftists", I'd say rather tiresome, who don't really contribute ideas but, like on twitter in the past, spend their day trying to cancel people.
I would also say that Diaspora* is partly losing momentum because of them, all the people who tried it in my contacts from other networks didn't stay there, too extremist environment, nothing new, interface a bit outdated, impossibility to make corrections to a message unless you delete it entirely and put it back online, etc
Diaspora* does not bring anything new and seems to be stuck in a drift which tends more and more towards the militancy of extreme left and not the mutual aid, the amusement, this militancy is besides much more present in the French-speaking countries than in the other languages, but it is my opinion, according to my experience.
On the other hand everything is not black, I am of good contact interesting in several languages, I found a nice admin pod and despite all the black aspects these two things motivate me to continue for the year 2023.
So here is my reflection for the year 2022 on the state of our social network to all those who are members.
