Hello World!

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

Our latest experiment didn't go as planned.

We have been testing Sentiment Analysis locally for use in detection of potentially sensitive comments and captions.

The false positive rate is too high to be useful for us.

We are not giving up and are investigating other means to help improve platform safety.

Sensitive comments and potential spam will soon be hidden behind a warning. #pixeldev

Hello folks!

We're going to be releasing a new experiment to help improve platform safety and reduce spam and malicious content ahead of the full federation release.

We have a few new experiments to announce after v0.9.5 is released!

We are back!

Thanks to @b and @hex for running this instance 😀

Introducing Simple Mode for Timelines, an experimental content-first timeline layout!

This experiment is already live on one instance, we look forward to your feedback! #pixelfed #pixelfedLabs

Discovery is important, @PixelfedLabs is testing Profile Suggestions in Timelines with an easy opt-out method.

To be included in Suggestions, you have to opt-in and they are displayed in Timelines as opt-out.

We look forward to your feedback on this experiment to help us decide if we should make it a feature. #pixelfed #pixelfedLabs

We have added the Profile Suggestions Experiment to Timelines, we look forward to your feedback!

You can now pick one of 12 header backgrounds on your MomentUI enabled profile! #pixelfed #momentUI

What a coincidence... @PixelfedLabs was announced months ago and its interesting to see IG focus on improving mental health #pixelfed #pixelfedlabs

We have put the Profile Suggestions Experiment on pause until we can give users the option of disabling it.

You will not see Suggestions in timelines until you can opt-out of them.

We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate the feedback that lead to this decision.

#pixelfed #pixelfedLabs

Should we end the Profile Suggestions experiment until users can disable them?

We have 3 ongoing experiments we are testing on

- Hidden Like Counts on Timelines

- Opt-in Profile Suggestions

- High performance Notifications API

So far everything is exceeding expectations and we look forward to announcing a new experiment soon!

To participate in the :pixelfed: NotificationService experiment, add ```EXP_NS=true``` to your .env

🔬 New Experiment Alert! 👩‍🔬

To prepare for full federation support, we are testing improved Notifications. You may notice they load a lot faster on instances participating in this experiment!

This experiment will pave the way for network timelines, mobile apps and real time updates for instances of any size!
