**Friendica** - http://frndc.com/ -

Sorry we need to close Friendica because...
It doesn't scale well for multiple users, reported twice to developers last year http://bugs.friendica.com/view.php?id=391 and http://bugs.friendica.com/view.php?id=515 without any changes or improvments.
Friendica development focuses on Red https://github.com/friendica/red
Less donations from Friendica users https://flattr.com/profile/frndc

We recommend to use Diaspora because...
It does scale very well for multiple users.
Diaspora development focuses on Diaspora https://github.com/diaspora/diaspora
Diaspora has a big user base https://diasp.eu/stats

What is Diaspora?
Distributed social networking: https://diasporafoundation.org/
Select a pod here: http://podupti.me/
Thanks!

Woot :P #friendica #diaspora

// oAnth:

1) The way to announce the server closing - I was told, that there should have been no earlier warning for the registered account members - by just generalising some ~friendica problems, as if all pods would have been closed down, is the first suspicious sign, that the admin was unwilling or not capable to do his job.

2) It is true that there are - depending on the server you have your account - on ~F a lot of out times and dysfunctionalities, which caused also myself that I use ~F less often as I would have liked to do so, e.g. in regard of the hub feature composed by federation & RSS-Feed (if RSS works, alas!) and its excellently configurable reposting unit.

3) You may find a very lively German speaking community with a ongoing cooperative spirit, where all kind of questions, especially for those who are running their own pod are discussed and may be brought in; this is still going on, also, when Red comes more and more in the focus of some early users, who are subsequently highly skilled IT specialists, for sure.

Don't be the product, buy the product!
