There’s a new playbook being written right now when it comes to the future of social media. The early-mover advantage is still in effect, and there’s a lot to figure out. Gone are opaque algorithms and the whims of any single company.

The fediverse represents a chance for quality journalism to shine again.

We talked to two leaders at fedi-forward publications — @TheConversationUS's @BostonAbrams, and @404mediaco's @jasonkoebler — about why they’re investing in the open social web, what they’ve learned so far, and their advice for other publishers just getting started.

Having to parse, remove all trackers and URLDecode the links from the @Flipboard newsletter is so annoying.

Sorry about that! Is that for the 10 For Today newsletter? All the content is available as a feed to follow here, if that helps? You might occasionally see a story in there that doesn't make it into the final lineup because the editor curating it changes their mind, but it should be pretty much the same!

Question for @Flipboard

Is there a way to flip @lisamelton's coverage of the Hush Money Trial into a magazine to follow that way? Her curation is :boost_requested:🥇

Flipboard ,
@Flipboard@flipboard.social avatar

Hi @starrwulfe! Not sure if @lisamelton is on Flipboard (we love her too!) but if she is, she could create a Magazine of every link she shares here, which would then be followable on Flipboard and in the fediverse once we federate her account. We know her as the queen of the boosters, so not sure if she would be interested in curating individual URLs into a Magazine.

645 days after setting up my own Mastodon instance, I finally tackled tuning my Postgres database config last wk & today setup multiple Sidekiq Processes after my queue got to 10K for the second time this wk

I read the guides multiple times over those 645 days but it never clicked in my head. I was afraid to mess with Sidekiq because I didn't want to brick my instance.

Then today, during the thunderstorm, the old grey cells clicked in and I understood.

Queue cleared up quickly

Question for the people! -- What platforms on the Fediverse offer the best content discovery capabilities? Services like Flipboard and Threads are integrated into the Fediverse now, we should be getting a lot of contents, but when I search for specific topics, the results are still really sparse.

Flipboard ,
@Flipboard@flipboard.social avatar

@chnynf Hello! We haven't yet federated all our user accounts so you won't be able to find all Flipboard publishers' or creators'/curators' content in the fediverse. However, here is a blogpost about publisher federation and a Google sheet with a list of federated curators and the topics they cover. Some of them will use hashtags in their captions when they flip into their Magazines, which means you should be able to discover their content here (depending on how well search is working!). Otherwise if you follow individual curators'/creators'/publishers' Magazines (topical feeds) you'll get all their content on that subject. You can also follow our new account, @FlipboardMagazines for frequent Magazine recommendations, or for fantastic non-Flipboard recommendations, there's @FediTips.

@Flipboard dear Flipboard, I would like you to stop recommending that I follow the Israel-hamas war, and the Russian-Ukraine war topics. I have the screenshots on my phone to verify this has been going on practically every week for months now. I find that recommending war, even if it’s just to read about it, is completely vulgar and deeply unsettling. It is also against the Mastodon Server Rules. You should be ashamed of yourselves. Sincerely, a normal ass dude from New York.

@Flipboard@flipboard.social avatar

@smicha84 Chiming in to say that blocking topics is on our product roadmap as we do see the value in making sure users are able to control what they're seeing. In the meantime, you can use the "Show less like this" function. Here's a bit of info about that.

@smicha84 Ok, let us look into this a bit further! It could be that it just takes some time to refresh as we jumped the gun. As we said, we don't have the capacity to completely mute a topic, but you can use the controls to get your feeds a little more to your liking.

I REALLY need to stop reflexively typing in “news.google.com” as a “check on the news” reflex.

It really is just a habit, and the fact is I get a way better “news at a glance” from, say @Inoreader right off the bat

@Wraithe We definitely recommend you unfollow topics that you're no longer interested in or that aren't quite what you were expecting, mute sources, follow different publishers and so on, and even report in the product when you see a weird tag or something that you really can't figure out why you're seeing.

You may already know all this, but just in case, here's a page on personalizing your feed, and one on organizing your Home Carousel so you can immediately find exactly what you came for:

Hi @Flipboard

The messaging on your “Do Not Sell My Info” footer link is a bit confusing. ^_^

This paragraph (2nd paragraph) suggests turning it “off”:

> You may opt-out of the sale of your personal information by toggling the button below off (green is on, grey is off).

While this paragraph (5th paragraph) suggests turning it “on”:

> Do not sell or share my personal information / opt out of targeted advertising (If you select On you are asking us not to sell or share your personal information and opting out of targeted advertising)

I'm not sure if it should be “on” or “off”. ^_~

If I may suggest, you can remove the second paragraph, as it is also explained in the 5th paragraph.

Then the 5th paragraph can be reworded to something like:

> Turn on the “do not sell or share my personal information” option. If this option is enabled (green “on”), we will not sell or share your personal information and you are opting-out from targeted advertising. (Default is: off.)

  • I used “turn on” since it's simpler (more understandable to a wider audience; than using words like “enable”/“disable” and “toggling”; also the button is labelled “Off/On”.
  • Since the default is “Off”, it's more appropriate to “Turn it ‘on’”.

If, by any chance, the 2nd paragraph is needed according to your legal team, may I suggest something like:

> You may choose to not allow the sale of your personal information by turning “On” the button below (“On” is color green; “Off” is grey).

  • Also simpler for a wider audience. Especially in countries where English is not a major part of their curriculum.
