@witcraft Here four projects are exactly the ones @mattontech mentioned in his interview. I decided to add them to the title of my post, but adding other unnamed projects would have been at least abusive…

> And Mastodon is hardly the Fediverse’s only offering. There’s also PeerTube, a decentralized video-sharing system; PixelFed, a similarly open-servered image-sharing service; Friendica, a more Facebook-like social media system; and Funkwhale, a community-driven music platform.

In any case, I don’t want to disappoint you, but @tchambers basically rejected any protocol other than ActivityPub… 🙁

> Prodromou, however, has strong words for any organization looking to enter social media with a new decentralized social media protocol. “I’m not interested in any protocol besides ActivityPub,” he says. “Anyone working on brand new protocols in 2023 should stop immediately. They are going to do more harm than good.”

@witcraft I agree! But it’s not fair to expect @tchambers to mention all the platforms during an interview with a popular slant 😂

Decentralized Social Media Rises as Twitter Melts Down. @matt_on_tech 's interview whith @tchambers
**[Mastodon is just the start—here comes the Fediverse with PeerTube, PixelFed, Friendica and Funkwhale](** [@fediverse]( > Most companies looking to support decentralized social media are adding support for ActivityPub or, in some cases, building new platforms for a decentralized future. Meta is rumored to be working on its own decentralized social network, code-named P92, which is said to include ActivityPub support. WordPress, Flipboard, and Mozilla have all announced features that integrate with the Fediverse cc ### [ Is available here ]( [@mattontech]( 's interview whith [@tchambers]( ###
fedilink configuration error led to data leak
**[As part of the expansion of hardware and software at Mastodon, an archive server was visible to all users for several weeks](** [@fediverse]( > The cause of a data leak at Mastodon was not an external intrusion, but an insufficient configuration of the Mastodon server for storing user data. This made it theoretically possible for every user of the service to view the data uploaded to Mastodon discovered the bug on February 24th and closed it within 30 minutes. However, the leak had existed since the beginning of February because the infrastructure had been upgraded at the time, the provider writes in an e-mail. ### [Link]( ###

Linus Torvalds and the Fediverse...
Linus Torvalds is not interested in religious wars in the fediverse. [@fediverse]( Linus Torvalds knows there is a time to administer and a time to use. Linus Torvalds knows that the Fediverse is free because it is made up of different faiths. That's why we like Fediverse. And Linus too 😅 The [@torvalds]( 's post ⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️ ♲ […](

France aims to protect kids from parents oversharing pics online
**[PARIS — French parents had better think twice before posting too many pictures of their offspring on social media](** [@privacy]( > "The message to parents is that their job is to protect their children's privacy," Bruno Studer, an MP from President Emmanuel Macron's party who put the bill forward, said in an interview. "On average, children have 1,300 photos of themselves circulating on social media platforms before the age of 13, before they are even allowed to have an account," he added **[By LAURA KAYALI on Politico](**

A new test instance for Bonfire is born!
Interested in testing [#Bonfire]( and providing feedback? Join [the new test instance]( ---------- [@fediverse]( **[The website has also been updated](** which hopefully explains the project a bit better 😅 While the playground (an older test instance) was about experimenting with the UX and all the different features and extensions in the works, the campground only has the core and social extensions enabled while focusing on stabilizing them (incl. federation) before a v1.0 release 🔥 **[Link to original post](**
