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


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.


if you're here but also on #threads, is there a reason you didn't turn on federation? otherwise I might ask you to do so over there. thanks.


Are there any #fediverse enabled #Threads accounts worth following?


🌢️ take of the day:

People on #Threads rave about its new Tweetdeck-like web client... which is limited to a few default columns. No list support.

Meanwhile #Mastodon has:
- lists
- real (+ multiple) hashtag support
- a chronological feed
- a PHENOMENAL web client (@cheeaun's @phanpy)
- brilliant 3rd party apps like @ivory and @IceCubesApp

AND it doesn't rely on advertising or #surveillancecapitalism.

I swear I'm gonna make it my mission to get my old network to move over here

#fediverse


In the latest episode of his podcast #SearchEngine @pjvogt talks about how #Google might soon destroy many #news websites:
https://megaphone.link/CAD6984549408

Guest @caseynewton makes the case, that the #Fediverse might save the "good internet".

But both are just scratching the surface and PJ later asks the listeners, if he should make an episode about the Fediverse. I would really like to hear that. But with whom as guest/expert? @mike?@tchambers? @reckless1280?
Ideas?

Content warning: Technical question about Threads


The algorithm of #Threads is such a piece of garbage.

I’m slightly interested by the most recent #OpenAI disaster.

But almost all of my feed is made of people *I don’t follow* who post about it.

It’s awfully annoying, and it reduces the informational value of the app to basically zero.


Threads is testing a new Tweetdeck-like layout. After Misskey, Mastodon and Bluesky, that's another social network to get a free column-oriented UI.

(the most powerful is still Skyfeed for Bluesky)

#threads


Is anyone doing more to federate #Threads than @tchambers? He’s like a one man combination ambassador and welcome party πŸ˜‚


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



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:

#fediverse #activitypub #decentralization #threads #flipboard #mastodon #lemmy


To expand a little, if I were a new #Threads I wouldn’t even think about looking at the β€œfor you” for the first 1 month of constant use. I do the same with streaming services, why? The algorithm doesn’t β€œknow me” so its suggestions are trash. The fact that people act like this is new boggles my mind, it’s like they’ve never used any other service with an algorithm. :blobshrug:


The story is from May 2. This is as much a reflection of the users as it is of #Meta's modus operandi.

"The longer a Twitter veteran spends on Threads, the more they notice what might be described as big Meta energy β€” and that's not a good thing." #Threads

"Too many Threads users are coming direct from Instagram and unwittingly relying on the Meta algorithm's pick of the Threads it wants them to read β€” regardless of whether they actually follow the accounts posting them" https://mashable.com/article/meta-threads-beat-twitter-x @Mashable @BeAware


Hm.

Threads: "You could imagine an extension to the protocol eventually β€” [...] β€˜hey, feel free to show me ads [...]" https://techcrunch.com/2024/04/25/why-meta-is-looking-to-the-fediverse-as-the-future-for-social-media/

I knew Zuck would find a way to fuck it all up! With interconnectivity comes a dick with no Vaseline!

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/?

Mastodon really needs to catch up.

"Quote and reply controls appear to be bundled together in a single dropdown menu, where users can open the conversation to β€œAnyone,” or limit it to β€œProfiles you follow” or β€œMentioned only.”"

There are so many accounts by the #news media on #Threads, that could but do not yet federate. Doesn't make much sense to ask here for them to do that, so I posted something over there.

If you have an account and want more of the media federating, feel free to share the post:

I'm collecting the ones I find here:
