Hey from Steve,
Introducing the ActivityPub plugin for WordPress
Version 1.0 of the ActivityPub plugin is now available.
ActivityPub is a “decentralized social networking protocol”. It could form the basis for a new social network. And your WordPress site could serve as your profile, and source of content.
Over 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 content on their own site.
I’ll 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.
