The Fediverse is a network of interoperating servers used for web publishing. Due to the federation, instances are constantly joining the network or disappearing.

The main protocol used in the fediverse is ActivityPub. Many software platforms exist; the most widely used ones as of early 2019 are Mastodon, Pleroma, PeerTube, Friendica, GNU social, and WriteFreely[1].
