View on Libreddit, an alternative private front-end to Reddit.

And they will turn this on by default…

Edit. I was being blind and somehow missed that this was posted already. See here for more discussion https://lemmy.ml/post/55696

Literally no one asked for that, and the top posts right now are how to disable it.

I’m trying to get ppl to join lemmy on those threads :)

The intent of this feature is to drive greater engagement amongst our users and encourage more posts and comments across the site.

Awful. The profit motive strikes again.

Seems like it might encourage harassment of users too. I’m reading in the comments you have to opt out to a permanent “hiding” status if you don’t want your online-offline status revealed. I do hope it encourages more to delete their accounts and migrate at least.

I read through some of those threads, and ppl don’t know about any alternatives like lemmy. They think reddit is the only link aggregator :person shrugging:

Funny enough, I just heard about lemmy through the changelog thread.

I consider this the last burnt bridge. Was kinda sticking around for a few good communities but it’s been clear this was coming down the path. I’ve been re-building my RSS feeds and it’s time to move on.

Eh. Probably those who would’ve done this already did after last week’s ToS update

I haven’t been on reddit for a bit. What ToS update?

No idea really. Facebook is way worse than reddit under almost every aspect, and despite its decresing trend in users engagement and users trust, I really can’t picture the day it will not be relevant anymore and Facebook as a company will drop its development in favor of other services. Reddit is much smaller than Facebook and it’s a news aggregator, but it’s still one of the biggest social networks (maybe it’s the 5th most popular one in western countries after instagram, facebook, twitter and youtube) and its trend is the exact opposite and its userbase will continue to grow. Reddit’s going to be a relevant platform in the social media universe for a long time

I think it will last, but the audience will be very different, closer to a twitter audience.

I still have my Reddit account for now, but once Lemmy is active enough I don’t feel the need to visit Reddit, goodbye!
