- Flaxy O'Hare,
Friendica aims at being a platform that suits everyone. Newcomers will feel right at home: the network's interface and functionality include common features of a mainstream social network. Being comparatively light on resources makes it attractive for administrators to host (Friendica servers are called "nodes"). The community is good-natured and helpful. Friendica is well connected with the rest of Fediverse — its users can follow friends on most other federated networks.
