People still keep asking me how federation works. So I made two images to show the difference.
That's how Facebook and Twitter work.
Most things really.
People connect to servers and the servers share data with each other.
E-mail also works like this. It's why you can send mails from Gmail to Hotmail
@softeisberg Oh so if you wanted to direct a message at someone else you need to give them their entire list. Yeah I see. Still awesome
