Hello World!

We created this account to post updates about @pixelfed Labs, an incubator for experimental features and projects.

We are delaying the Network Timeline until we release the updated admin and moderation tools.

Direct Messages are being delayed until we release the updated privacy settings which enable greater control over who can message you.


I'm really happy with the evolution of the UI.

ComposeUI v1 - May 17, 2018

ComposeUI v4 - Aug 18, 2019

#pixelfed #composeUI

We're making it easier to share your photos.

The redesigned ComposeUI will be released this week, we think you will like it.


It will ship with support for 10k+ cities, we plan to add additional locations in the future!

Add an optional location to your photos. We hope to ship this exciting feature next week!

We have some exciting news!

Our next experiment involves improving federated privacy and security in Pixelfed.

We will be testing ActivityPub + OCAP for the Stories feature which will be released later this month.

This will only effect Pixelfed instances, we plan to support other ActivityPub implementations in the future.

ComposeUI v4 will be shipping soon!

We're adding a few exciting new features:

- Collections
- Geotagging
- Photo Tools (Crop/Rotate/Zoom)
- Stories
- Tag Friends


This is our current federation roadmap.

I've been working on Phase 2 for a week already and I'd like to get it out this week if possible! #pixelfed

Pixelfed hid like counts then a few weeks later Instagram did.

Pixelfed allows you to hide comments, Twitter is starting to experiment with that too.

This is just the beginning, we have a lot more experiments to ship that will further improve platform privacy, safety and security! #pixelfed #pixelfedLabs

Before we ship the Collections feature, we want your feedback!

Does the flow of composing a new collection make sense? What could we do to improve it?

Thanks in advance, boosts appreciated! #pixelfed
