Hello World!

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

After some consideration, we will not be releasing the Following Activity feature.

The potential for abuse/stalking outweighs any benefits it may provide.

We are organizing a town hall meeting to address the state of platform safety on Pixelfed and what we can do to improve it.

What would be the best medium for you to participate if you could attend?

New moderation tools, user notifications, and safety improvements will be shipping soon.

Here is a sneak peak! #pixelfed #pixeldev

We will be making an announcement next week regarding the Hidden Like Count experiment.

We have successfully tested federated Stories between two Pixelfed instances! 🎉

We'll have more exciting news to share this weekend 😎

I started @PixelfedLabs almost a year ago to ship experimental features and incorporate better mental health, privacy, safety and security initiatives into Pixelfed.

I'm happy with its progress and look forward to announcing some exciting news soon! 😁

The new ComposeUI is magic!

We've added some new features like:

- Continuity
- Camera Roll
- Photo Editor
- Collections
- Scheduler
- EXIF/Metadata Editor

It will be shipping this weekend 🚀


Working on Poll support!

Polls in Pixelfed will only be available in Stories, and will support custom text responses.

Stories, and Story Polls will be rolling out next week as an experiment on select instances. #pixelfed

Our 3 month roadmap is pretty exciting!

v0.10.6 - Mobile app support (eta: 1 day)

v0.10.7 - Performance, ComposeUI and Api updates

v0.10.8 - Circles

v0.10.9 - Stories and Instagram/Tumblr import


v0.10.6 will be released this weekend! 🎉

You will be able to use your favourite mobile fediverse app with Pixelfed!


v0.10.6 is just around the corner!

It will provide basic api compatibility with mobile apps like @fedilab and @Tusky

If we want people to use the fediverse, then we need to focus on them, all of them.

They don't care about OCAPs or datashards, they care about real life privacy, safety and security.

Attending a conference in Prague will not solve the abuse, cyberbullying and stalking problems on the internet and fediverse.

It's up to the fediverse developers to take action.

Our new COSTAR service is GDPR compliant and optional.

NLP, ML and Sentiment Analysis requires a lot of resources and will be disabled by default.

Natural Language Processing, Sentiment Analysis and Machine Learning is at the core of the new COSTAR service.

Admins will be able to set SMS, Slack or Telegram notifications to aid in moderation.

Instagram has a lot of issues like Bots, Fake Followers and Spam.

We have to do better.

The Developer APIs will be released soon, and they ship with a few improvements in privacy, safety and security.

We have a few ongoing experiments related to this that will be announced soon!
