We cede these decisions to private companies and corporate interests. We get more convenience, but I’m not sure we get more control.
Maybe others are starting to catch on?
It looks so neat and can be done so easily by the users. Whoever doesn't care, just use plain text.
Can be done, let's have it. TY!!
@rgx I believe htown supports basic (inline?) Markdown in the text entry, something I recently learned.
Might as well test it!
Sometimes they ask me why, and then I tell them. The conversion rate isn't that good, but most of them are now conditioned to only use Facebook for talking to people they know in the real world ... and not reading anything 'promoted' by anyone/anything.
@yojimbo @randomgeek @GeoffWozniak Didn't mean to offend all of us who have relatives still happy and present in the FB network, but the platform itself, their algorithms and the revelation of all the dirt about Cambridge Analytica and their election manouvering is pretty disgusting.
Plus their CEO refusal to consider the content validity of political advertising, to keep ads and cash flowing unimpeded. Justified as freedom of expression, aff.
Abused expression, it there's one. Corporate donations untrammeled in the name of same in the US.
I do like that Crossposter and use it, as well as the https://moa.party one.
Reason - the admin of the Brazilian instance doesn't allow my Qoto account to access the crossposter (instance blocked), although it works fine with my other account (Todon).
Moa is agnostic and doesn't care, A bit more terse, but it works. Crossposter is more elegant in it's user interface and the finished output too.
Just like on my blog posts. Woot!
I asked Nolan if Pinafore would support rich Text and MarkDown, and he said it would display whatever the instance passed down to it. The same post looks rich here in GlitchSoc, and barren in Masto with all the niceties stripped out.
Yeah, bulleted lists are perfect, easy, no brainer. The text format I got to recall which works; suggestion - prepare a text as DM to yourself at another instance, then Delete/Redraft until it's perfect, then post public in that moment.
A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
