Wouldn’t be great if ActivityPub supported something like E2EE private chats between any user from any instance of any project.
I believe the possibility to find and chat with anyone in facebook and Instagram is what have made them have a monopoly in the social media verse.
This could be done through P2P technology or through the integration of an xmpp server. so that you don’t have to use another service to safely chat with new acquaintances. and you can rest sure that your conversation is private and can’t be read by the instance admins.
I’ve read that mastodon devs are thinking about ways to add this. but I don’t think it will b interoperable.
I know It will be hard to bring fediverse projects to agree on a common standard. but I try and keep my hopes high.
