I am a self-appointed Technology Evangelist of "Linux in Manufacturing" - now I am going to start my training in the same for Hubzilla. I could use some Unique Selling Points in favor of Hubzilla, maybe in contrast to Mastodon, which I can share on Gab.
I had a bit of a dust-off on Gab with someone taking offense me calling the Gab Linux Users group a zoo. There is over 16k of 'users' and the 'group leader' complains that the group is being polluted with off-topic, mostly political. I explained that trying to moderate a group of 16k is hopeless, its already a zoo, going forward its going to be herding cats.
I do not want to keep arguing along the same line, it would be a waste of time. Instead I would like to post and recommend the small-group approach, where moderation means that everyone has the attention of everyone else. This is not some sort of divine revelation, its the practical approach of departments and work centers every manufacturer adopts (teams).
The group building and maintaining Gitea repositories on YunoHost should be separated from the group using Ubuntu MATE with OpenSCAD. The two groups have very little to share, especially when a few people in the group are tasked with both - and their cross-posting is pollution as the rest of the team is concerned.
Hubzilla would allow this sort of principled, justified separations by purpose. I could use any feedback which would help me to explain this on Gab, to the 16k aimless and lost souls. I am thinking of posting in small burst, like explaining channels and profiles, privacy groups and such.
Any thoughts, existing texts, train the trainer resources?
