Created a document explaining the different kinds of identifiers used by the ActivityPub-speaking Fediverse, linking to some related literature. Will link more and write more in the future.

#ActivityPub #Fediverse #Webfinger


I'm adding new profile fields to #Smithereen, so I would like to ask the fediverse about what kinds of contact info one would expect to be able to add to their profile. So far I've seen:
- Personal website/blog
- Matrix
- XMPP
- Telegram
- Signal
- Phone number
- Twitter
- Email

I've not yet seen these in fediverse profiles but they are mainstream enough that won't hurt to add:
- Instagram
- Facebook
- VKontakte
- Snapchat
- Discord

Is there anything I missed?

I hope to see decentralised #moderation in the next iteration of #ActivityPub protocol.

New: Last Week in #Fediverse - ep 70

This week's news:
- The Verge and 404 Media are preparing to add federation to their news sites
- @newsmast starts adding #bluesky and #threads accounts into their communities to create a hub in the social web
- Combining #nostr and #Mastodon in a single feed with the app @openvibe
- A 10k seed funding bounty for building DeviantArt on #ActivityPub

I really hope Threads eventually comes through on their promise to fully federate without this "opt-in" bullshit they have now where you have to teach every individual a lesson on Fediverse before they MIGHT see it's positives...

Current implementation leaves a lot to be desired unfortunately...😬

#Fedi #Fediverse #ActivityPub #Threads #Meta


I'm just a humble country chicken admin, but I've been thinking a lot about the cost of the fediverse and how we can improve it for all of the instances... in a coop kind of way

The cost of handing all of the media is THE major problem for me atm.

One thing I want to point out about https://pubkit.net is that I know a service like this could be easily abused!

This is why you will have to verify ownership of servers you want to test against

It can be a text file or DNS record, and in special cases, I can make exceptions for devs who want to test against instances they can't publicly verify

The point is, PubKit will be opt-in, and won't require a fediblock, services like these can be done right 😎

An excellent #fediverse and #activitypub explainer! (and it doesn’t even refer to any specific platform) https://youtu.be/VmSWPj0T9IQ

"We have to use the alternatives. I am happy with #ActivityPub"

Fixing the internet: designing great decentralized free software
Fixing the economy: rethinking economics outside of capitalism.

If you talk about technology, you talk about power, you talk about politics, there's no way around it.

Cooperation among human rights, technologists, social movements, environmentalism, etc. must happen.


🌟 Big news!

The new Pixelfed app will introduce Collections. Curate and organize your favourite moments like never before. ✨

Coming very soon, along with federation support for Collections!

#PixelfedApp #Collections #ActivityPub


@bart is offering $10k for someone to build an #ActivityPub DeviantArt alternative for the #fediverse, who's gonna take them up on it?


So, #Smithereen no longer requires a username when signing up. You instead get assigned one automatically, of the form "idXXX" where XXX is the ID for your user record. You can change it later in settings if you wish. Current Mastodon versions handle this change no problem.

The username is only visible in two places:
- The URL of your profile
- When someone mentions you
So it's not very important. Definitely not important enough to be a required field when you register.

Thinking about attempting to code an #ActivityPub service as a learning project, and to perhaps solve the social lock-in issue of gaming platform profiles that really pisses me off. 🤔

I really really don't like #DRM, however I'm way too attached to my almost 20 year old #Steam profile and like to do video game achievements. Having a unified, federated profile that pulls its data from all the different sources (Steam, PSN, Xbox, RetroAchievements.org and especially GOG) would be neat. #gaming


¿Sabíais que en el Fediverso todos los servicios están conectados, que no hace falta una cuenta en Peertube para publicar un comentario a un vídeo que viste?

¿Sabíais que no es necesario tener cuenta en Pixelfed para comentar una foto de un perfil en esa red?

Todo eso se puede hacer desde una cuenta de Mastodon. Así de simple, así de potente... El protocolo ActivityPub hace posible que puedas interactuar con diferentes servicios desde Mastodon o viceversa. No hace falta estar en una red concreta del Fediverso para poder interactuar con sus usuarios.

In case someone wants possibly the longest thread on the fediverse for testing purposes, here you go: https://mastodon.social/@brownpau/112322747861701800
With the way I store replies in #Smithereen, this will soon exceed my limit of 256 levels ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Look at how @Mike Macgirvin 🖥️ designed events in @Streams! I would love to see this implemented in other software. @julian have you thought about how @NodeBB would display an #ActivityPub event yet? Does @silverpill's @Mitra have any support? What about @The Real Grunfink's SNAC?

Here's a link to the event itself if anyone wants to query it in their #fediverse software of choice.

Woah, this is… big(?). “Jack Dorsey says he quit Bluesky because it was becoming another Twitter”

https://www.businessinsider.com/jack-dorsey-bluesky-twiiter-nostr-interview-2024-5

He left #Twitter, then #BlueSky, and now endorsing #Nostr… but still not the #Fediverse.

"In 2024, for the first time, it finally feels like we have a critical mass of people and platforms who are interested in rewilding the internet to bring back what we lost, and create something new. ... There's a palpable feeling that this just might be the year of the open web."

is this feeling... hope? https://activitypub.ghost.org/day-0/

@gruff @reiver Wow, this is the first time I hear about Farcaster.

So… now we have 4 protocols which all try to achieve the ”truly decentralized social web”:

- ActivityPub
- ATProto
- Farcaster
- Nostr

What a mess :blob_smile_sweat:

#ActivityPub #Fediverse #ATProto #Nostr #Bluesky #Farcaster


I must wonder… if Dorsey truly wants to build something open, non-commercial and decentralized, why doesn’t he even look at the ActivityPub? Why not help it thrive? What’s all that fuss about Bluesky and Nostr?

#Fediverse #ActivityPub #JackDorsey


Former CEO of Twitter wanted to build a social protocol no-one can control, like SMTP or HTTP for social media. Bluesky’s ATProto was supposed to be an open source protocol that Twitter could eventually utilize, but then Musk happened and Bluesky started taking it to the wrong direction and everything fell apart in Dorsey’s mind.

A very revealing interview. I now see even more future in W3C’s ActivityPub.

This noob is testing the interconnectivity of the Fediverse,.


This noob is testing the interconnectivity of the #Fediverse, with the AP (Mastodon, etc.) and AT (Bluesky) Protocol protocols, and also starting to test #Nostr this week.

I've been exploring the fediverse intermittently since last year. As a reflection of my journey so far, I wanted to put down some thoughts:

Content warning: Diario de self-hosting de una instancia de GoToSocial


I'm glad to announce the release of version 2.52 of #snac, the simple, minimalistic #ActivityPub instance server written in C. It includes the following changes:

Posts that were liked or boosted can now be unliked and unboosted.

Outgoing message timeouts are no longer hardcoded and can be configured (see snac(8) for more information).

Fixed a bug that caused some incorrect unfollows under special conditions (with shared inboxes enabled and users from the same instance that follow each other, the internal message distributor was confused).

Mastodon API: Added support for lists.

Added a header to avoid over-zealous caching in some browsers (contributed by louis77).

Added support for running and federating inside hidden networks like Tor, I2P or Loki (contributed by iwojima).

Fixed an error processing polls coming from Pleroma instances.

https://comam.es/what-is-snac

If you find #snac useful, please consider buying grunfink a coffee: https://ko-fi.com/grunfink

Usage tips: Use social media as little as possible. Go for a walk. Meet with friends. Read a good book.

For video sharing content on activitypub, you can register a new account and sign in to peertube instances

It's different over on atproto. You don't need an extra account on Bluemotion video sharing app. Just sign in using your existing Bluesky account

Exciting times for the fediverse!

Huh, I discovered a new #ActivityPub software: #Takahe!

https://jointakahe.org/

What can you tell me about it? Had you heard it before?


This video is SO good! Anyone who is interested in Fediverse nuances and the issues we've been debating for months now, should definitely watch this video! 4/?

So, at the 29 minute mark, Ryan talks about how Mastodon's search discoverability feature is currently opt-in and there's only 5-6% of people currently opting-in. That's a wild statistic!😬 3/?

Ryan made a pretty good point around the 16 minute mark about how Threads wasn't told to make their federation "opt-in" from the Fediverse side and that people feel differently about bridges for some reason.

Even though, they're the same thing, in most ways. 2/?

Finally sitting down to watch/listen to the podcast with Mike Mccue, CEO of Flipboard, and Ryan Barrett, creator of BridgyFed.

This should be good!😁

So cool to see the leaders in this space share info and help each other make this the best social media project it could be! 1/?

@pfefferle I'm thinking about deleting the blog from Mastodon.Uno, keeping it up and running just into #ActivityPub and this account is my personal one. So, I can get rid of #JetPack for autopost on Mastodon at least, keeping me all slots for letting me keep social autoposting free feature's limitations sufficient.
