A community dedicated to fediverse news and discussion.
Fediverse is a portmanteau of “federation” and “universe”. It is a common, informal name for a federation of social network servers whose main purpose is microblogging, the sharing of short, public messages.
Getting started on Fediverse;
Hopefully this is implemented like https://github.com/bookwyrm-social/bookwyrm/issues/1548 using the Group Actor type of AP, in order to be compatibile, otherwise there’s little point for it.
Interesting, it seems that every project implements groups in wildly different ways. Both bookwyrm and pleroma are going for private groups primarily, with public groups as an afterthought.
Yes, it seems to be the only way that fediverse evolves… organically, haphazardly maybe. I don’t know whether that is good or bad, but I find it a bit disheartening to see that it so hard to get a bit of broader collaboration off the ground. The prior discussion on SocialHub on Standardizing ActivityPub Groups (which was a continuation of a much older discussion) has sorta stalled again. Though still the occasional reply seeps in…
I wonder what the use case for groups will be. Share photos to only selected people?
The screenshots look like its essentially facebook groups, which would be nice because im in a lot of facebook meme groups and havent seen any federated alternatives with a UX that i feel i could really pitch to somone deep into instagram / fb / whatsapp land.
That’s what I assume.
That actually looks good. Lets see how people use it
