Fediverse - Privacy Community

cross-posted from: https://lemmy.blahaj.zone/post/6880 > ![](https://lemmy.blahaj.zone/pictrs/image/w99HWrxFKK.png)

I'm excited about about a more CMS-like approach to a fediverse server, especially one that leans on #IndieWeb building blocks.

Fediverse is like email
It would be nice with a search engine made with decentralization in mind. Like the internet is decentralized but the good search engines are at centralised companies like Google etc.

Wanted: RSS reader for Social Media-feeds - recommendations?
Again and again it is mentioned as an elementary advantage of Mastodon & Co. that ActivityPub-feeds are accessible from everywhere thanks to RSS. That's true - but I don't have the right reader for such a purpose. I would like to have a doomscrolling-timeline for all the services that are accessible via RSS, not an article-reader like RSS clients usually are - with previews, open article, etc. Is there an app like '[Fritter](https://fritter.cc/)' that not only allows access to Twitter, but also to follow accounts via Nitter, Mastodon, PeerTube, etc. etc.? Can be for Android or Windows...

Mastodon founder has a message for Elon Musk

I’ve wanted full RSS feeds for several Mastodon instances for ages. They can be particularly useful for small instances (aka communities) with slow posting velocity

Ivory and Micro.blog, not yet
"As Mastodon becomes more popular, it’s important that Micro.blog stays true to its blogging roots and unique take on social media, rather than shifting to be a Twitter or Mastodon clone. We don’t need a monoculture with all apps looking exactly the same."

Mirror your favorite Twitter accounts in the Fediverse, so you can follow their updates from the comfort of your favorite instance. Or migrate your own to the Fediverse using a Twitter archive.

Even if it doesn't happen, I really wanna see more of this. The meta culture of fedi should seek to become evermore potent. Especially now that it's popping off.

Indymedia In The Fediverse? · by Bix Frankonis
There’s a great look back at the heyday of Indymedia from Todd Wolfson and Malav Kanuga for Logic Magazine. I wanted here to highlight two paragraphs in particular as it navigates from that era to today’s (over)reliance upon platform social media.

Fedistar - Multi-column Mastodon and Pleroma client for desktop
Author of Whalebird, Mastodon desktop client, started a new project Fedistar Code : https://github.com/h3poteto/fedistar https://medium.com/@h3poteto/im-developing-a-new-fediverse-client-application-for-desktop-fcd5b83a7ebb Don't like to read Medium ? Use https://libredirect.github.io

Adding comments to your static blog with Mastodon
Seems to use the Mastodon API though.

Is there any fediverse platform with an algorithmic/viral design?
Even if it's opt-in. There are times when I'd rather see a summary of what's been going on instead of doom scrolling to find something interesting.

Apparently Buffer is pretty big in "social media professionals" circles.

How can I repost a post from Mastodon on Pleroma?
I have tried visiting the user from Pleroma but I didn't found the same post there. So what else can I do? Is there a way to visit the post directly from Pleroma having found it in Mastodon?

Sounds like a massive release. [Full change log here](https://github.com/misskey-dev/misskey/blob/develop/CHANGELOG.md), but it is partially in Japanese.

An article posted on (cough) Medium, but consider to use https://libredirect.github.io/ if you want to read distraction free.
