Instagram has business accounts with additional features.
We are considering a different approach, Page Accounts.
Pages will support Multiple Users and ship with a Dashboard, Post Scheduling, Page Stats, Relationship Manager and more!
This will be rolling out to instances soon as an opt-in @PixelfedLabs experiment.
@pettter @pixelfed @PixelfedLabs because Pages as described in the original post are designed for multiple users. So we can assume they are specifically not run by an individual, but by a group of people.
They also are described to have features that presumably are not important to individuals (like page state and relationship management).
(If those features were important to individuals, why not add it to regular accounts?)
So basically, this reads as a feature intended for corporate/group use, and therefore is basically a persona representing a brand. Basically, a bot.
(If the bot flag doesn't make sense, please propose another flag. Like "brand", "corporation", or "multi-user").
Not every users' ideal feature set is identical. For some people it will likely make sense to get a Page account, and for others not.
Similarly, for some groups, getting a regular account would make more sense than a Page account.
@pettter @pixelfed @PixelfedLabs the described feature is _literally_ the feature set of a product designed for brand/corporate use by a company that makes money from brands using that feature. They've optimized it for brands.
If an individual wants those features it sounds like they're intending to turn themselves into a brand. Same difference.
Your argument sounds like the one against gun control: an AR-15 is literally designed to kill people effectively and efficiently, but because some people _could_ use it for hunting then it shouldn't be required that AR-15 ownership is controlled.
I'm not saying that fediverse use will get me killed, but the way that people interact on this thing is somewhat decided by the shape of the tool they use to interact. And a brand-shaped tool sounds like a social weapon.
relationship manager is like mastodon's relationship manager but idk why it should be limited to page accounts. i really dont know why any of this should be limited to page accounts tbh
