Currently, there are the following social network apps out there (in alphabetic order):
It is a hard problem and there are more efforts outside of the blockstack ecosystem that try to decentralized social networks. As the “Economics” mentioned mastodon is a big on here, and discussed at FOSDEM, Mastodon has defined/uses the ActivityPub protocol (together with e.g. webfinger). Should we also use these protocols? If no, what are the arguments against?
If yes, the proposal is to develop a single user focused activityPub server that can run on everyone’s machine and uses the gaia storage (and then join the (political, regularitory) forces to bring back users hosted servers fighting against the interests of ISPs) Before that is possible for all users I think we should embrace the fediverse out there and add servers (with Blockstack Auth support)
Does it make sense?
