Thanks to all the @opensuse developers and maintainers. Been using openSUSE since 2005. Love it! Now on 15 and enjoying it even more.
Whenever some app or service claims to respect your #privacy, check for two things:
1. Is it open-source on both client and server (if applicable) ?
2. Is the service itself decentralized in some way (federated, allows self-hosting etc.) ?
Now evaluate everything you use - iPhones, WhatsApp, Telegram, Signal, Gmail etc. using this checklist.
Try to find and use software/services which satisfy both of the above conditions.

#Diaspora is an open source federated social network:
It's one of the longest-running open social networks, and has the second largest userbase after Mastodon.
It doesn't federate through the more common ActivityPub standard (which Mastodon, Pleroma, PeerTube etc use), but instead uses its own Diaspora standard.
There's no character limit on Diaspora posts and they support markup, so it can be used as a sort of Tumblr-style blogging system too.
One of the first Mastodon instances, there is no specific topic we're into, just enjoy your time!
