Brands, businesses, influencers and power users will eventually join the fediverse. Why not embrace them? Its in our best interest to grow the fediverse.
I started a new suite of tools in June to support them. It was created with privacy in mind, you will only see public data insights and stats. Any user will be able to use this feature. After federation support is finished I will focus on this again! #pixelfed
@Michcioperz There is no federated timeline on pixelfed. Just your personal timeline and the local timeline.
@Michcioperz How? You willingly follow the users whose content appear in your timeline. You can unfollow them or report them too.
@Michcioperz By using public data like a discover page based on hashtags you've used as well as content relevant to accounts you follow.
>but ads can be brought into the federated timelines through spammy accounts
Which already happens if one takes a look at the federated timelines.
Also, "influencers" are mostly enterprises, aka they sell products (mainly themselves, but not only). Some of them don't, but most of them function like that.
They won't come here any time soon because there's not enough people (nor mainstream consumerist background) to "influence" (sell) profitably. My guess.
