I see the matrix is more popular than xmpp, but why?

    Hosted my own xmpp server back when you could talk to facebook messenger and google chat users via federation. But when they closed their walled garden there were nobody to talk to so i stopped it.

    Now with matrix i have again a homeserver. Bridged to messenger, google what the new thing is called, slack, and a few others.

      Wait a minute… xmpp is federated? Like I can self host and then still message others?

          I thought that was why matrix was made. Because it’s federated… What’s the got damn point of matrix?
