"Relatedly, contemporary fediverse interfaces borrow from surveillance-capitalism based popular social networks by focusing on breadth of relationships rather than depth. [...] What if instead of focusing on how many people we can connect to we instead focused on the depth of our relationships?"

-- @cwebber (dustycloud.org/blog/spritely/)

yes amen

Why choose one OR the other? Different people are looking for different things, shouldn't we strive to make both possible?


@silmathoron @cwebber Fair point. My feeling is that features that encourage breadth detract from depth, but if there's a path to get it working both ways, then yeah choice is a good thing. It probably is more doable in the Fediverse, because we can control much more how our client operates but still be part of the same network.
