Fediverse : Where real People are
The recipe I'm using to publish as of now :
Updates on my blog can take several forms, a simple link I want to bookmark to read later, a status update with or without a link, a picture, audio, video, event, geo checkin etc.. It could also be a long post format about something specific I'm ranting about or passionately want to share with the world. The point is, I'm trying to create value and data on my blog first and thanks to the wonders of #micropub #Indieweb #webmentions I can push what I create on my blog to different social media platforms : birdy site is still a place, even tho I find myself pushing to #fediverse more often than I push to Twitter.
By using WithKnown & it's different plug-ins (Twitter, Mastodon, Facebook pages) I can publish on my blog, push copies to silo networks or the fediverse and cherry on top of the cake : get reactions to my posts on silo networks or on the fediverse to be pulled back to my website original post, as if these reactions (Comment, retoot/retweets/shares/favs/likes) were all different kinds of interactions, no matter where they come from on the web.
And of course if you own an #Indieweb compatible website / blog you can use my URL to comment directly on your website and it will stack up like any other reaction chronologically under my original post.
That's the web we should build while these pivot in behavior slowly dephase the silo networks out of our lives and we proclaim the Open Web to be "The Social Network" it should have been in the first place.
Need any help?
Quite fun to explore the #fediverse in English, Spanish, Portuguese and French, so many things going on in so many places, certainly the most interesting corner of the internet regarding the evolution of social networks & reclaiming our ability to own our data, web actions and online presence.
