To get our heads around how good decentralized social media can get, lets just look at creative commons. Let me explain how powerful creative commons can be.
Tiktok as inspiration
Tiktok is a video sharing platform. A creator can post a video and decide how people can interact with it. For example, I can allow people to use my singing on their video. Or I can allow people to use a clip from my video in theirs. Or I can allow people to add their own video clip right next to mine.
This leads to some amazing videos. I have seen a band playing along with a howling dog. I have seen great debunking of intuitive talking points. I have seen awkwardly awesome dialogues. Theatrical lipsync performances. And amazing skills with audio from another creator about wisdom.
It is also designed to make it easy to navigate between those who has interacted. If I want to see what other videos has used the same audio, I can click the sound. If I want to check out the person being responded to, I can get there with one click.
As with creative commons, tiktok makes it easy to interact with other people. They give us flexibility of social interaction.
But let’s be clear. Tiktok content isn’t creative commons. And they are still a walled garden with all the negative that comes with it. But I believe that this platform can be used as inspiration when creating other platforms.
Creative Commons + Federation = ❤️
Federation makes platforms and pods interconnected and connected through communities rather than algorithms. When CC has attribution license, we can make it very easy to navigate between content as well.
Idk, I can’t end this post properly. But I got this off my chest. Waddaya think?
This is a companion to Fediverse Futures on SocialHub to elaborate the Fediverse from high-level, non-technical perspectives, brainstorming our visions and dreams.
We need a more holistic approach to fedi development and evolution. We need product designers, graphics artists, UX / UI / Interaction designers, futurists and visionaries to join the dev folks. Everyone is encouraged to join here and enrich our views on what Fediverse can be with diverse and different viewpoints, and to stimulate brainstorming, creativity, thinking out-of-the-box and crazy, wild ideas.
