@sri I don't know, but it is something that #GNUSocial supports since the time it was named #Laconica.
What I don't know if groups are supported in #ActivityPub that is the protocol Mastodon uses for federation. https://activitypub.rocks/
There is also #OStatus https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OStatus
I don't understund yet the differences (relationship?) between OStatus and ActivityPub
A lot of things to learn, but a fascinating world. I am happy :)
🗣 Finished upgrading my #Mastodon instance to v1.6.0 💾
Thank you to all who contribute to this open-source social media project! 🏅
Mastodon v1.6 is live!
☑️ Easier sharing & discovering content across servers
☑️ Improved first-time user experience
☑️ Fresh new W3C standard #ActivityPub
☑️ Better profiles & pinned toots
Also there is #hubzilla which might be of interest. It can read/write the most federated standarts and comes with a plugin system and cloud.
There is one plugin for #webtorrent (unfortunatly at the moment broken and not having the very highes priority)
the main thing what hubzilla is missing is a different UI
Are you following effort made at #matrix?
There is in this moment also effort to develope a blogging plattform.
Read more about that here:
Just wanted to point that out to you. Would be great dif. plattforms read/write to each other
❤and thank you all for what you do! ❤
Luke is the main dev behind, and you'll find him in this matrix chat room:
I like your effort of creating the vibe of collaboration! :)
...but, still here comes critic:
You're pushing the focus in this toot to 2 protocols while there are more.
#ActivityPub is solving issues from #OStatus. this makes ppl more believe that in future it will be all around ActivityPub.
That's not very engaging for those working on 'other sides' for federated networks
I'm hoping that Mastodon implementing #ActivityPub means that the UPDATE activity will allow us to EDIT OUT TOOTS!! I want this. https://www.w3.org/TR/activitypub/#update-activity-outbox
''I will be bringing #Zot nomadic identity to #ActivityPub - just as I brought it to #Diaspora and #OStatus (you probably didn't know that).
Other systems/platforms can choose to ignore it (as they currently do), but everything they require to process and deal with nomadic identity will be there for them to consume if they ever wish to join us in the 21st century.''
