Yep that's basically it, if first send the message from Identica it can 
also go to Twitter, and from Twitter some how to Facebook.  If send the 
message first from Diaspora to Identica, it can then go to Twitter and 
like I said before from Twitter to Facebook some how.

With Identica got to use ! to send to the group 
http://identi.ca/group/mageia however Twitter only uses # which would 
send to a tag on Identica http://identi.ca/tag/mageia and the Identica 
bridge to Twitter automatically converts ! to # when sending the message 
to Twitter.

Yes Identica and Diaspora aren't mainstreame social networking sites 
such as Twitter and Facebook, however Mageia has a presence there, and 
so they should be taken seriously as well and ideally by the whole 
Mageia social networking community. Another reason for them to be taken 
seriously would be that they are open social networking sites unlike 
Twitter and Facebook. Identica has mainly Linux users using the site it 
seems, and I think that's the same for Diaspora.

Twitter can't send to Identica directly for example.

Anyway that's a good idea I could do a chart or something like that 
later on, trying to explain this stuff as well.

I meant the URL title text's them selves.
