@pixelfed I'm waiting for something just like Google Photos to move my 80GB of photo albums to the fedi.

@hyde_stevenson @pixelfed Does it support federated sharing? (that is, share photo albums with users on other instances).

Previously, I was self-hosting photos on codewiz.org, but had to stop because there was no way to share photos of vacations and social events without giving all participants accounts on my website 😕

@hyde_stevenson This is the same sharing model I had originally in my wiki: everything's shared with the whole world. It works for selected photos, but doesn't cover friends who'd rather not have their face crawled by all search engines.

You can have a password protected directory for that ...

@codewiz @hyde_stevenson @pixelfed
I think it does to some extent, although not activitypub (that is still in early development):


Still it is going to become the #pediverse. That is something totally icky, gross and illegal.

@jsilence @pixelfed It's deeply integrated with the DNS system which is anything but anonymous, so while there'll be some amount of whack-a-mole involved in keeping bad actors out, it's no worse than any other open web online communication medium, for example a PHPBB board.

Agreed, the nature and openness of the #fediversee makes it a bad platform for anonymous illegal activities. But I was only word playing anyway. Notit implying any dark netty viciousness

@pixelfed perhaps it's time to change that name to Phediverse

You've heard of (G)NOME and (K)DE but have you heard of P???
