A thought about the #Fediverse and the origin of #Internet

I think that the #Fediverse has the potential to bring (social) #Web back closer to its original vision of its most important inventor, Tim #Berners-Lee:

"There is the idea that society can run without a hierarchical bureaucratic government being involved at every step, if only we can hit on the right set of rules for peer-peer interaction. So where design of the Internet and the Web is a search for set of rules which will allow computers to work together in harmony, so our spiritual and social quest is for a set of rules which allow people to work together in harmony." (source)

And from my point of view, the term "hierarchical bureaucratic government" also holds for "#centralized #commercial #social #networks".

Appeareance of images attached to a post

Hello @Friendica Developers @Friendica Support @ Hello dear community, I would like to discuss with you about the appearance of posts with multiple images on #Friedica. Here is my opinion:
The current way multiple #images are displayed is awful:

Yeah, you saw it by my embedded examples your self. What bothers me most is:

  • It just looks messy (especially when there is a mix of landscape and portrait format)
  • Besides the aesthetics, multiple images take a lot of room (when you do not use an add-on like show more)

My suggestion on which I would love to hear your opinion is to use a grid format like on #mastodon:

I would pitch a suggestion by adding a PR for a (from my point of view) "better" appearance based to this
tutorial. I do not like to use JS in general and would leave it out by determine the suited amount of columns in the backend.

But before I invest time on that, I want to hear your feedback. Thank You!

I am not able to confirm the issue. On my dev instance, clicking on any image in any of both column starts fancybox correctly (Tested it here:
Can you provide an example? Thank You!

@Marek Bachmann :friendica: @Grischa Don't worry about it, it's an issue with the fancybox addon specifically, and you need an image grid with two columns, it doesn't affect inline images like you've shared.

Deprecated Facebook Connector(s)

@Friendica Support
Hello again!
I just had the great or dump idea (could not test it out yet) to reactivate my Facebook account to advertise the #fediverse, and especially #Friendica . I drew my motivation from the text
With Friendica, you can also fully interact with anyone on Twitter, post on Facebook and receive any content on Tumblr, Wordpress or RSS. Friendica allows you to integrate most things on the web via a range of addons such as ITTT, Buffer; you will be able to easily control your own data as you decide.

But then I read:
Facebook Connector, Facebook Post Connector and Facebook Sync plugins are deprecated. As of the moment you cannot bridge from or to Facebook with Friendica.

How about updating the regarding the state-of-the-art in 2022?

BTW: I will nevertheless try to motivate the local Facebook crowd to have a try with #Friedica , evnen though I loved the idea to post there directly from the #fediverse .

The full Twitter interaction is still functional, though? (Never used it myself)
