ok so now that Google+ is dead can other social services please hurry up and clone the one good idea they had in “circles?”

embr 🐉

@ticky You can do that very easily with ActivityPub on a protocol level, but no servers actually implement it to my knowledge :(

@embr does ActivityPub make any actual guarantees around this? Would Mastodon actually properly understand a post directed at only some people who follow a user?

@ticky Yeah, everything is implemented in terms of inboxes and outboxes, DMs are technically this already - posts delivered to only some people's inboxes (timelines), but not your outbox (public profile) - and there's no rule that says you can have only one inbox or outbox
