Firstly, if Jack leaves, you know it's not *that* bad but still, So honestly, after reading this about BlueSky, I smell a different kind of Enshittification will rear it's head, including locking in people. How? I dunno, yet, but this still feels like a VC backed tech startup to me even though they say it isn't one? Yet. https://newsletter.pragmaticengineer.com/p/bluesky-engineering-culture #BlueSky


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

My biggest #gripe with #Mastodon is reach and the ability to discover stuff outside of chronological scrolling. Lists in #BlueSky make that better. Imho the algorithms in #Threads are too intrusive.

If there were simpler ways to connect with different topics on here it would make it excellent, to me at least. I guess it might come down to why you use different social media.


So far, too many really evil people there. On the #Fediverse, there's some light at least.

I am no longer bridging my accounts to #Bluesky

I have done this for 2 reasons:
- The inability to delete posts
- The inability to access your bridged account

Instead of bridging my accounts I will be cross-posting my stuff between #Mastodon and #Bluesky


I give up on @bsky.brid.gy I’ve tried everything, change my name, static profile pic, read through the docs, spoke with my Admin, removed notices from my profile, literally everything and still can’t bridge my account. Maybe next year. :blobshrug:

#BlueSkyBridge #BlueSky #Fediverse #Mastodon


Just curious, to those BlueSky enthusiasts out there:

How is BlueSky considered "decentralized" when there's only 1 company that controls the rules and who can and cannot post stuff?🤔

That's not what decentralized means...😬

Decentralized means power is spread out so that one central individual or group doesn't control everything.

BlueSky is not that. BlueSky is centralized and nothing about it is "federated".

The ATproto just seems like theatrics to generate interest in something that isn't really there...😳

#BlueSky #SocialMedia #Decentralization #Decentralized


#Bluesky has finally introduced their first version of Direct Messages, a feature the community has long asked for.

https://wedistribute.org/2024/05/bluesky-introduces-dms/


So, kinda like mentioned people only posts, ish. #bluesky


Very interesting that the new DM feature on BlueSky doesn't even go through the AT protocol.

I guess they thought it was so much a priority that they just built the feature barebones and released it because other platforms are also missing the feature so they wanted to get ahead of them.🤷‍♂️

It's about as "private" as Fediverse DMs, but it's a start nonetheless.👍

Edit: said the wrong protocol name. Fixed thanks to William.maggos.

#BlueSky #SocialMedia


UI differences are a big factor in the success/failure of decentralised federation of diverse platforms and content

And this seems a good example: bridged #mastodon posts onto #BlueSky which has a lower character limit than Mastodon.

So, just like #lemmy posts on mastodon, you don't get the full content of the post (which ends with an abrupt ellipsis here) and have to take a link to the original platform.

However powerful the underlying protocols, this isn't far from screenshots.

@fediverse



Bluesky now allows you to unpin or even remove the default "Following" feed and make any other custom feed the default one.

The "Following" feed is the chronological one by Bluesky but there's thousands of other custom algorithmic feeds created by other users and generated by federated third party servers.

Hat hier schon jemand die Brücke zwischen dem #Fediverse und #Bluesky ausprobiert?

#BridgyFed von @snarfed.org (https://fed.brid.gy/docs).

Hat durchaus noch Probleme, aber prinzipiell funktioniert es und das ist natürlich richtig cool. Gibt schon Accounts da drüben, denen ich gerne von hier folgen würde. Meiner ist schon verbunden: @fingolas.bsky.social

Hab drüben auch drauf verwiesen:

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.

#SNS #SocialMedia #ActivityPub #ATproto


If I could have one app that combined what all four of these Apps do, I would be so happy #BlueSky #Mastodon #Threads #Fediverse #AtProtocol


Jack Dorsey is furious that #Bluesky has attracted "very very common" people. He also doesn't like the idea of moderation tools facilitating the banning of racists.

All these tech billionaires are like a version of the movie Big, in which a pre-adolescent boy wakes up in the body of an aging Howard Hughes. Or Colonel Kurtz. Or a sardine.

@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


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.

Ser att Bluesky vunnit viss popularitet bland Mastodon-användare, det är förbryllande, Mastodon (ActivityPub) är den fria plattformen, de flesta andra är inlåsning.

Bluesky är inte heller ”Twitter 2.0” om nu någon trodde det: https://thedeepdive.ca/jack-dorsey-leaves-bluesky-board-unfollows-almost-everyone-on-x/

So I just tried opting into #BridgyFed (https://brid.gy/mastodon/@atomicpoet@atomicpoet.org).

I found it confusing. For one thing, it asks me for my Mastodon account. Though Akkoma uses Mastodon’s API, not all sites recognize this nor support it—I don’t know if BridgyFed would reject.

Secondly, it’s not clear how to opt in. I think I opted in but there was nothing to say “Congrats! People from #Bluesky can see you!”

Also, how do I receive #Bluesky posts? That’s not apparent to me.

@fediversenews


As #Bluesky has been deliberately structured to (in effect) route all its content feeds through large corporations, wonder if that is their long term business plan?

Feels like any company that has access to a large collection of user-made data is now looking at how to sell it to AI companies.


Jack Dorsey referred to Twitter, the privately owned company that blocked links to competing social media platforms like Mastodon, as "freedom technology". What a clown.

He also deleted his account on Bluesky announced he's no longer on Bluesky's board of directors. Jack's involvement was one of the reasons I was never excited about #Bluesky, TBH.

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/?

🌉 The OpenSNS bridge is live! Uniting Mastodon’s ActivityPub and BlueSky’s ATProto, it’s a win for open social media. Despite debates, a vision for a connected, inclusive digital world prevails. No more silos—just seamless interaction. #OpenSNS #Fediverse #BlueSky

#Bluesky bridging is finally happening! Only opt-in, though, so make sure to follow @bsky.brid.gy if you want your posts to show up there.

@snarfed.org, any chance you'd consider implementing FEP-fffd (https://codeberg.org/fediverse/fep/src/branch/main/fep/fffd/fep-fffd.md) on brid.gy? This was one of the primary use cases for it.


We can now connect to #BlueSky accounts from here, but both sides need to enable it.

We're supposed to be opt-out folks, but too many "safety" advocates are stopping the #SocialWeb from ever becoming ubiquitous. Imagine being so scared of "bad" speech that you demand users and server admins add each other's domain to their settings before they could communicate or even browse to those sites. We'd all still be on AOL.

Thank you @snarfed.org.

Bluesky?!!

Ah-ha! Now I'm seeing something! Both ways? Hmm...

#Bluesky #Federated #Mastodon #Fediverse


In the latest episode of #DotSocial I interview @snarfed.org, a passionate bridge builder with a focus on connecting people across the open web and the #fediverse. His latest work, #BridgyFed, connects #ActivityPub and #ATProtocol resulting in excitement, critique and *lots* of discussion.

Ryan and I talk about the parallel communities on #Mastodon and #Bluesky, their shared desire to create an open social web and the pros and cons of their underlying protocols, #ActivityPub and #ATProtocol. Can or should these be bridged? If so, how? As whole new communities continue to join the fediverse, how should the user experience evolve?

Listen to this excellent discussion on our @PeerTube instance or wherever you get your #podcasts.
