The longer I'm on Facebook, the more I'm missing the absence of groups in Mastodon. It's a really nice feature to have. Microblogging is nice but it's also nice to have a centralized place for discussion.


@xj9 Does pleroma have anything resembling groups? That might be enough for me to switch, or at least alt.

@tealturtle not that i know of. i think they're blocked on getting cooperation from other teams. might not hurt to ask on IRC.
@tealturtle @xj9 Unfortunately not, and I'm not sure if it's a planned feature or what.

I think Gab has groups though lol
@xj9 @tealturtle I never claimed it was a good solution to the problem :>
@wizard @tealturtle @xj9 yeah it's a planned feature I'm pretty sure, no estimate though I think

@musicman I know, I mainly just am not happy with the mobile clients available for GNU social, as well as the occasional federation issue.

@musicman No, AndStatus always felt a little off to me UI-wise. Can't explain exactly why, I like Tusky a lot more.

@tealturtle I use Twidere and am very happy with the mobile expirience.
