I just finished reading this massive thread about standardizing “groups” on the #fediverse and how we want them to work in the future: https://socialhub.activitypub.rocks/t/pixelfed-groups/1984/36
I tagged them here in case others who do not partake in the socialhub forum have followup questions or concerns regarding the shaping of the fediverse, as this is a participatory space!
Thank you Michael for adding your voice. I've worn different hats from builder to archaeologist but ultimately I'm a problem solver.
It would be great to see group functionality start simple because they provide value even if only local to an instance.
Obviously everyone's thinking about how to federate them, which will pay dividends as their boundaries grow beyond the instance, but it seems to me difficulty in achieving consensus around federation has stymied development of the basic thing.
