What are the drawbacks of this approach anyone?
@xj9 sorry was slack to say #p2p What I mean: Mastodon is doing the hard work putting distributed network in place. Could we piggyback a #Facebook alternative on the back?
@Antanicus how hard would it be to make a simple UNIFORM
webpage framework (just like MySpace, Facebook) that people could use that could either be hosted on same server as account / by your #coop / on your own webpage? This could hyperlink out to/from users/posts
@NOiDEa @xj9 @dajbelshaw I believe there's a big question that should be asked before anything else: is there a real need for such a "universal template"? If you don't answer this question first, there's a very high chance anything you do will make things more complicated without adding any actual value
@xj9 @dajbelshaw @Antanicus power of the few over the many will never change until the means or propaganda is in the hands of the many. Distributed social media a great possibility then?
So although everyone could have a customised website that feeds in like:
Would it be worth having template to make it as user friendly as possible to encourage mass adoption? Though DIY websites would be good to make people more proactively empowered?
#mastodon could easily incorporate additional features to make it more #facebook-like. #diaspora and #hubzilla are other #ostatus projects that have gone in that direction. federation *does* make privacy difficult, which is something that should be taken into account (which really hasn't been done effectively on mastodon imo).
#p2p internet will hopefully be developed alongside in parallel as the new framework to carry this content
