Personally, sometimes I use the Like Botton to say: Interesting subject, but without meaning of evaluation (Like,Dislike). I just want to be informed by the notification system of Hubzilla about any discussion that may be eventually developing.

Or "I like what you're saying/showing me" or "I disagree with that but I'm glad you've brought it up" or one of any number of possible responses. Stressing over likes/dislikes is so Facebork.

The problem is how people receive the dislike. If I click like it means too the you are empathetic

I wrote this last summer after playing around with this software although I have heard that the software hasn't been updated in quite some time.

Enjoy! :)

Hey all,

I was brought here by Sean Tilley. I am interested in the science of decentralized and federated networks and Hubzilla has been the most impressive to me thus far. I come from the land of diaspora*. Been there since 2010. I have seen a lot of impressive technologies with the software! Feels great to be aboard! :)

@Mike Macgirvin Two questions:

1. I would like to connect Libertree and GNU Social (I use Quitter) and Twitter. Where do I begin with this?
2. Any chance of Facebook compatibility?

@Brandon Smith

1. Assuming that your hub's admin has enabled the plugins, the GNU Social and Libertree connectors can be found here: /settings/featured

2. At the moment, no Facebook addon exists for Hubzilla. It would not be impossible to write one (it may be possible to adapt the plugin from Friendica and adjust it for Hubzilla-native hooks), but currently no one is working on it. Generally the attitude towards such things is "If you want to see something, try working on it."

Connection to Facebook by anything that remotely resembles a social network is outlawed in their terms of service. We provided such an ability in Friendica in 2011 but it stopped working in 2012. Attempts to get our application 'approved' to allow us to use the social API calls were soundly rejected. There is a third-party service called 'buffer' that seems to be able to work with Facebook and twitter and exposes an API. I no longer have any personal interest in working on such a thing as Facebook is incompatible with my core beliefs, but others are welcome to give it a go.  

There are working (as far as I know) addons for Twitter, GNU-Social, and Libertree as well as a number of other services like WordPress.

Twitter and Libertree are just cross-posting services which require an account on that network, GNU-Social (like Diaspora and ActivityPub) is supported at the protocol level and your Hubzilla channel is all you need. WordPress is also a cross-posting service, but if you also install the wp-hubzilla plugin to WordPress you can share posts and comments both ways between the services.

Anyway after the plugins are installed by the site admin it's just a matter of visiting Settings -> Addon/Feature Settings and enabling or configuring them to your needs.
