Curious how many people arrive in these networks were thinking, in a certain way, to be able to do exactly what they probably did in the famous networks of hell.
A classic example is the user that in facebook had 800 contacts, I do not fuck know how a person can read the posts of 800 contacts in a day, where the fuck he finds the time? Not even an unemployed person, who does nothing all day, finds time.
Having 100, 150 contacts is already more than enough...
Furthermore, first of all, let's consider what kind of mammoth and powerful servers use services/corporations like facebook/twitter.
Sincerely, you who join our foss networks, do you really think that network administrators here are able to afford servers of such size and power?
that our administrators can always give the luxury of having 1000 users with 1000 contacts each?
In your opinion, what time of life we have to give these public nodes/hubs?
Certainly this is a general discourse that can serve everyone.
But now we consider that not all software is the same.
For example, consider 2: mastodon and hubzilla.
There are 2 completely different things, which do completely different things.
The first JUST a microblogging service, the second a sort of CMS, with various functions.
Imagine what kind of server it takes to run an hubzilla public hub by having say ...30,000 accounts, each of which likes to surround itself with 500 contacts?!
Do you ever ask such things when you place 700 abundant people coming from mastodon - diaspora - GNUsocial and other... among your contacts?
Can you imagine what kind of damage can you give to the node/hub and its administrator when you act on this form?
But do you really need to have all these connections/contacts?
Well, if the answer is yes, then you probably are not made for this world, but you should go back to using the big networks/corporations with their super mammoth servers.
