Over on the KinshiPress blog, I wrote about the new connection between ActivityPub and WordPress.
During the last few years, social networks have been splintering and it would be a major improvement for social users to have control over their own profile on their own site.
Over 10 years ago, I wrote a post with this title: “There is an Open Source Rival to Facebook: WordPress“. In the last decade, the potential I described hasn’t been realized.
In that post, I walk you though how the ActivityPub plugin works, explore the key features, and see whether this is finally the open source social platform that could gain traction.
