I just created a #Pixelfed account and everything is hunky-dory, except that it doesn't seem to federate with anything! Not with other Pixelfed nodes and not with other federated platforms. All I can see is the local results - and that's slim pickings at best. Is this a permissions issue related to my pixelfed server of choice only?
So, to rephrase this as a question: how do I find content from other Pixelfed instances, and how do I follow people on different #ActivityPub platforms?

Are there any known synchronization problems between #mastodon and #friendica ?
I can currently send messages to #activitypub, but I'm not receiving any from there.
I've done some tests to prove it and it just isn't working properly.
At first friendica's account appeared with a lock on mastodon's account, and then I changed that condition to friendica. Can that condition have any effect on the communication?
Thank for any answer
Approximately one year ago #Microsoft bought GitHub, kicking of something that become a group of people discussing formalizing a specification for federated code hosting platforms. This specification work ended up with the name #ForgeFed and is currently developed by the #Peers community. The end result will be a set of extensions on top of #ActivityPub that allows any code hosting platform to federate with any other code hosting platform.
ForgeFed is using the brand new #Feneas forum for discussing various spec items. Everybody is welcome to participate, though especially good would be to get people from the various code hosting platforms to give their thoughts about what they would be happy to implement.
Join the discussion here: https://talk.feneas.org/c/forgefed
The ForgeFed repository for the specification is hosted at notabug.

I tried it on my Nextcloud instance and it is possible to interact with #ActivityPub services like Mastodon or Friendica, but currently it's far away from production and lacks some core features.
There's also the open federated #Prismo, which is in a more advanced state of development:
You can try Prismo at:
(If you copy a Prismo user or post address into the Mastodon search box and click search, you can interact with it.)

it's still very early and requires both Rust and Qt but here it is: https://cgit.kde.org/scratch/jalcine/activitydesk.git/
still investigating wrapper libraries versus building it from scratch
(The first thing I want to do is help make a local group for posting stuff I wanna give away)
This lets anyone on Mastodon etc follow your site, comment on posts and share them on the Fediverse.
There are two WordPress ActivityPub plugins available right now:
AP for WordPress
An example of a WordPress site using Pterotype is WeDistribute:
#Fediverse #ActivityPub #Blogs
I wish I had more to show for the past few months, but since I work for The Man it means a lot of sh*t I deal with is the kind where if I aired it out it would have disaterous consequences for myself, my wife, and my dog. And render the project unusable. I can't let a side project that I do for love ruin three lives.
It's one thing to tell me go-fed/activity as #ActivityPub software is faulty on technical reasons. Or politely poke fun of how few users there are. I am ok with this, it is a software thing. It can be fixed.
But it's entirely another thing to try to tear *me* down over it's lack of users, or say I am undeserving of praise, or that I am holding the AP ecosystem back because of this library. This is a people problem that can't be fixed.
Q: are there any well working JSON-LD libraries or shall I just go the way I initially was going to, ie "it's all JSON"? 😀

I have this old #blogger page that I would like to cross-post on and show Federated comments in the comment section.
Is that possible with the Blogger #addon? I am already stuck with the fact that the old Blogger API URL seems to not exist anymore?
Also what happens if I post via the Blogger.com interface... does Friendica pull these in, or is this a one way link? What about comments?
Alternatively: anyone had luck with using https://fed.brid.gy/ with Friendica now that #ActivityPub is available?
- No single person created the #Fediverse
- No single authority controls #ActivityPub
- #ActivityStreams allow federating data
- AS can be readily extended to have new kinds of data
- Instances are the authorities on their own data
We should work towards having decentralized (instances) "AS/AP Authorities" who can extend the protocol and own the extensions, while federating these extensions so other devs can discover them in a centralized manner.
Expanding on my idea, they should add support for #WebTorrent too. Wouldn't it be awesome if anyone could setup their own podcast site and then people could follow via the #Fediverse or #RSS and stream via webtorrent so a popular show doesn't bring down their site?
I would like to have the ability to discover content on the various new fediverse platforms that are using #ActivityPub (for example Pixelfed or Peertube).
Would it be possible to split the Activity Pub entry in the Protocol widget into the various platforms? Then it would be possible to go to /community and say something like
