The more I think about #mastodon features that would be strategic, the more I think folks should build in features and tools for hyper-local communities to use. Lean in on "instances" intended specifically for networks of a dozen (or at least under 100) friends and family. In essence a replacement for "FB groups."
The #Fediverse certainly do more, but that seems like a strategic opportunity. In essence what Darius Kazemi has been thinking about for a while.
This would be a good feature to add to #Mastodon:
"Now you can decide who can respond to your posts. Your choices of who can reply:
Only people you follow.#
Only people you mention in the tweet.
And since you can mention no one, you can make it so that no one can respond to a post.
For instance if I wanted to be sure to see all the public posts from an instance like this. It's almost a customized "Federated" view:
Question #Mastodev folks: is there anything in the works to make remote follow, remote boost, remote likes a far more seamless experience?
Both from a UI experience, but also from a "reduce requirements to credential yourself as often, if at all?
Think that is one of the more confusing part of #Mastodon to users more familiar with centralized social nets.
"Why Mastodon is defying the 'critical mass'...It’s a mistake to judge the fediverse as though it’s a Valley startup."
