Hello new folks! 🐘

Have you heard of the ? πŸ—ΊοΈ

It's a set of community projects that use the standard to talk to each other.

Mastodon is the most well developed, but there are many works in progress too:

Instagram -> PixelFed πŸ“·
@pixelfed
pixelfed.social

YouTube -> PeerTube 🎞️
joinpeertube.org/

SoundCloud -> Funkwhale 🎧
@funkwhale join.funkwhale.audio/

MeetUp -> GetTogether 🍻
@GetTogetherComm
gettogether.community

...and many others.

@switchingsocial Is PeerTube already usable?
Are there already some (good) content creators or is it still just people uploading random stuff?

Would love to see an good alternative to YouTube πŸ˜€

@BO41

It's working but still very rough round the edges. The first proper release version should be coming in October, as they recently had a very successful crowdfunding for its development.

There are already some interesting instances like Blender's official PeerTube channel, which you can follow through Mastodon here: @blender

@switchingsocial okay, thanks for the information.
So I still need to wait, until PeerTube 1.0 and some creators, to delete YouTube

@switchingsocial @pixelfed @funkwhale @GetTogetherComm GnuSocial has been around for ages and Pleroma is also worth of mention

@sonya @switchingsocial @pixelfed @funkwhale @GetTogetherComm Could you please explain a bit more detailed what it means that all these applications are built on ActivityPub. Will you be able to see posts from one of these new apps here and comment on it?

@flo

Basically, yes, you will be able to follow people from one platform on another, and comment/like their posts.

You can already follow PeerTube channels on Mastodon (e.g. @blender ). The blogging platforms Plume and @write_as are also already federating.

The range of interactions depends on the platform, for example PixelFed will let you follow Mastodon accounts but will only display posts that have images attached. You'll also be able to follow PF accounts on Mastodon.

@sonya

Agreed! GNUSocial is probably my favourite out of all the microblogging services on ActivityPub (although I'm on Mastodon, I realize how much I miss being able to log in without JS).

Also #Mediagoblin but that hasn't gotten ActivityPub implemented yet.

@switchingsocial

Do GetTogether actually federate with the rest of the fediverse of just itself, like nextcloud? I tried to add some users from there to my followed, but I see no handle...

Sorry, maybe I'm not understanding anything here =D

@pixelfed @funkwhale @GetTogetherComm

@arteteco

GT is not federating yet, it's still being worked on. The list is works in progress rather than finished projects.

If you want to try out the cross-platform federation, you can follow PeerTube users from Mastodon, e.g. @blender

PixelFed is also just about to become federated, you can already find some PF users listed on Mastodon.

@switchingsocial

Thanks, I already follow #Plume and #peertube users, I'll be waiting for GT to federate too!
