From I ask questions
Jump to: navigation, search

Below you find figures about

  • the microblogging service identi.ca,
  • the software StatusNet it runs on
  • and other websites which use StatusNet.

If you know other figures, please add or drop a message here, thank you! reason I created this was: to have some figures at hand to convince others to join identica :-)
