@dansup my understand was more along the lines of twitter lists
@dansup why not just be able to follow hashtags? That be very cool.
@dansup That was my plan for Anancus. It looks like federating will be easier considering that we are all using AS2 groups as hashtags.
@marsxyz Groups are defined in the ActivityStreams v2.0 vocabulary in https://www.w3.org/TR/activitystreams-vocabulary/#dfn-group
@dansup I always think of groups more like a type of communication relay between everyone subscribed to it, rather than a hashtag subscription.
The reason being that Diaspora actually had hashtag subscriptions, but it only worked for tagged content that your own pod knew about. People on smaller pods ended up missing out on a lot of content as a result, because the tag subscription couldn't pick up on content from other pods that they weren't connected to.
