Pixelfed is really great and im excited for the app. The developer really cares about the project and app and listens to users needs especially when it comes to safety. Glad he’s the one at the helm of it.

does this work? @dansup@pixelfed.social I think hes also on lemmy @dansup@lemmy.ml

oh wow that did work i wonder if his pixelfed account got notified from @ing him. The fediverse is so impressive

Agreed! Dansup is great. Very transparent and connected to users and developers in a down to earth way. Will respond to you if you need help and clearly cares about the project and anyone using it while valuing your input.

The official apps for Android & iOS are getting ready to be released for Beta testing very soon. I’m not sure but there may be a FOSS third party app out for Android already

I was about to email the author who previously wrote about the woes of Instagram to tell about Pixelfed… but apparently it wasn’t needed. Good job!

@SteveKLord did you see this from my post? I was surprised I hadn’t seen anyone mention it. I was just randomly reading the verge and came across it.

Haha, yeah I have to give you credit for this. I first saw your post on my PixelFed account. Didn’t see it here but thought it was worth mentioning. Thanks for sharing as always!

@SteveKLord federation working as intended! I wasn’t implying I needed attribution or anything, just curious if my post was the seed! its cool to see when you post a link and then see it start diffusing

Oh, definitely! I love when it all comes back home like that. I’m newer to PixelFed than Mastodon but I love how the two services work together through federation via Activity Pub along with Lemmy, etc. Really says a lot about the Fediverse that the origins of a post can get blurry and less important

Fediverse is a portmanteau of “federation” and “universe”. It is a common, informal name for a federation of social network servers whose main purpose is microblogging, the sharing of short, public messages.
