The global Friendica directory, and how to opt in!


We've had a small but significant surge in new users lately, so I wanted to share something that I think some of you may not be aware of - I know I wasn't when I first started using Friendica!

By default social.linuxlusers.com does not list your account in the global Friendica directory, where other users might search and find you. Many users expect this by default, but it is done to respect privacy, and to comply laws in some countries (much like the cookie notice pop-up).

That said, it's very simple to have your account listed in the global directory, thus making it so other folks in the fediverse can find & befriend you! The option is found under "Security and Privacy" in your account settings!

Here's a trail of bread-crumbs to follow:
Settings > Account > Security and Privacy

This doesn't mean too much really, since we already had the latest features and bug-fixes that went in to the RC branch and will continue to do so. I just like to keep everyone availed of and changes to the node! I made this move because I have been told by the Friendica developers that when there is a release candidate, such as this, that it should be used instead of the development branch.

Once the RC phase is over and the development branch goes back to being active we'll probably switch back to that - as it's been an overall good experience getting the bleeding-edge features and latest bug fixes, with no particular major problems. That said, there's always some risk with the dev branch, but in my experience any issues that do arise are fixed quite quickly, and the Friendica devs are quite good about making sure something is working well before merging changes.

However, I'm most interested in what you, the users of social.linuxlusers.com, have to say! My top priority is to give... show more
