App: facilitate transition from FB
As it stands,it takes a lot of motivation and time investment by early adopters to organize a transition to D*.
I recently made an infographic (hosted here: https://github.com/isomerase/join-diaspora-meme) where I propose everyone makes a D* account and leave it dormant until all their friends join, and then switch at once.
The problem is, there's no directory of your FB friends on D* or automatic tools to rebuild your social network.

FB app to facilitate migration Closed Thu 17 Dec 2015 8:07PM
1) If you have a D* account, you could authenticate your account. Otherwise, the app shows you a list of available pods, and helps you make an account with your FB credentials.
2) The app would then keep a directory of your FB contacts, which ones have a D address, and which ones don’t. You can choose to invite friends to the app.
3) As your FB friends make accounts, your D* account automatically shares to their accounts.
4) Finally, once you reach a certain threshold percentage of friends on D*, it could send out a notification to everyone letting them know.
