I had a job interview, and brought up open social networks, and the interviewer was like "ah, like plenorma" and then knew Friendica BEFORE I COULD MENTION MASTODON

No, but the interviewer now has accounts on Mastodon, Friendica and Plenorma.

Well, more steps before I find out, but I did find him on https://social.coop, but he also said he'd used identi.ca and GNU Social

Brb registering plenorma.social and hosting a year old instance

when I hit reply to this post, mastodon automatically adds @bobjonkman @gs.jonkman.ca to the reply field. seems like a weird bug. though must be left over from friendica supporting gnu social still and mastodon not.

what is this plenorma interview you speak of?

not a weird issue, it's how Mastodon handles replies - it copies all mentions from the parent post, even if it can't fetch them itself. if you look at the activitypub data of the post, it mentions that account.

I wonder if a friendica user is having a convo with a diaspora user and I respond will it add the diaspora handle automatically too?

is this a bug already on your issue tracker?

No, since it doesn’t affect the display on Friendica’s end, we have to wait for someone on Mastodon to bring the issue to us like you kind of did.

Cool I am glad I discovered an edge! Would you like me to file an issue?

Definitely. A fix probably won’t come out this December stable release but fingers crossed for the Next March one.

Bob is in the reply chain though? So seems right?

I had an interview, we talked about privacy and corporate interests and stuff, and I mentioned "federated social networks" and dude mentioned plemora before I could mention Mastodon, so basically, Mastodon is dead

Including the upcoming rebranding announcement for Plenorma
