Imagine two identical with mainstream users. Same number of users, same connectedness of the social graph, same demographics etc.

Social network A only has an algorithmic feed. Social network B only has a chronological people-I-follow feed.

What would the usage numbers look like in comparison? Numbers of posts, numbers of likes/replies/boosts, growth trajectory, etc?

I would expect somebody has done some research on this. Anybody know of any public results?

Why? I don't like Joe Biden. The idea that anyone has to convince you to fall in love with Joe Biden is as absurd of a assertion as the cult and , that is about

Il faudra bientôt avoir travaillé minimum 8 mois sur une période de 20 mois pour ouvrir des droits aux allocations chômage (contre 6 mois dans les 24 derniers mois). Jusqu'à fin 2019, c'était à peine 4 mois sur 28 mois... Pour les chômeurs de 53 et plus, la période de référence reste à 36 mois mais pour combien de temps? Que la force soit avec nous... https://www.lesechos.fr/economie-france/social/la-reforme-de-lassurance-chomage-dans-la-derniere-ligne-droite-2095778

So this question is part and part story -related and asks you to be very honest, but here goes:

— What do you, personally, think is/are the value(s)/benefit(s) of interacting socially with other humans?

  • Also—if you’re happy to disclose—are you neurodiverse or neurotypical?

for reach appreciated.

Interesting approach. But it's commercial, not decentralized, and is backed by Sam Altman and more Big Tech honchos, so my first reaction is skepticism.

Tranquillou, Ambroise Méjean, 20è sur la liste de Valérie Hayer, admet qu'il profite de son chômage (2500 euros par mois) pour faire campagne. "Le choix de ne pas travailler n'est pas pénalisé en France", comme le répètent Macron et ses fidèles. Deux poids, deux mesures. Pour rappel, le papa du candidat est le cousin de l'ancien secrétaire d'Etat Cédric O https://tiktok.com/

I heard the term "attention farmers" used in context of "haters" trying to spin up #drama with conversations on #social (usually because those get the most likes/reposts). Love that term.

Time is precious, so little I have of it. Focus on productive things and be a barren wasteland for attention farmers.

Dear European based LGBTIQ+ people.. (so basically everybody).

Today I attended an event in #Amsterdam organized by @waag @DeGroene @gemeenteamsterdam and the #oBa Amsterdam public library called #StateOfTheInternet

Featured speaker this time was Euro Member of Parliament @kimvsparrentak who passionately spoke on the need for a more free Internet detached from #bigTech and more focussed on #Democracy and real #Social interaction.

When confronted with her presence on X and Insta, and the lack of active presence here on the #Fediverse we promised to help her.

Please help us get a decent follower-base here and follow her account right now, before she even gets a chance to get more active. A follower base of more than a 1000 people will surely help her convince her party members to spend time and money on a real presence here.

I used a cut out of the image posted by @sicco in this post: https://todon.nl/@sicco/112372340250592627 thank you for that Sicco.

Our family friend Mimi Wada co-produced and co-starred in the new "Snack Sakura" that shows ( hostess ) through the experiences of the expert Canadian Greg Girard. It is under 25 minutes and posted for free at https://hi-lo.tv/Our-Work or permalink https://player.vimeo.com/video/935465833

Other professors used to take me to snacks when I was single, so I was well aware that hostesses were mostly divorced or single mothers. Mimi sheds light on the nature of snacks by saying that has a dark side. Regarding the that Greg mentions, Mimi clarifies that there is a double standard whereby men can go to snacks openly, but it is shameful for to work in them. Now I'm a family man, but I sympathize with such women, who would otherwise have to for close to the minimum wage.

A documentary succeeds insofar as it sheds light on the topic. If you watch it, perhaps let us know your impressions.

One concern raised about this proposal is that it is symbolic and might not do anything to improve the lives of people with visual impairments.

I would like to hear perspectives from people with visual impairments on whether this kind of action is helpful.

Just discovered that most of the people I was following over at Bluesky haven't been active there in months, sometimes many months.

I've got a hunch that Bluesky is not going to be the Twitter successor they hope for. 🤔

There's this platform called Mastodon though… 😉👍
