I'm sort of testing out quit.im, a part of the Federation that looks and works like Instagram (yes, even with the filters), and has a nice, progressive ToS. I am mindblown! Finally a decentralised alternative to proprietary image sharing based social networks. 👍🏼
@lilletale tell us more about your experience with it.
@pinkprius I'm pretty much going to compare it to Instagram, though. quit.im is like the browser version of Instagram a few yaars back, before DMs and stories. But it has "Moments", which is a collection of (beautiful!) pictures, kind of like Instagram's explore tab. I have yet to find a mobile browser that works with the posting process, that's a minus. The UI is nice, my post at the start of this thread looks like this in my quitim feed: https://chaos.social/media/9Guzz3D4VJAQGZp_VS4
I never turn on geolocation on my phone camera but on (alas increasingly rare) occasions I find the time to use a "proper" camera I actually like to share the EXIF stuff about aperture, ISO etc to help other photographers (as my core job is in IT and infrastructure so I'm not in competition with anyone). Its one thing I still like about Flickr!
@vfrmedia Filters aren't mandatory, but I don't know about the rest.
@lilletale I've joined up (already noticed a picture I tooted from *here* in the moments!) - looks like its federated to here so EXIF is stripped out (isn't that much of a loss when I'm only using mobile phones on full auto settings anyway which is more common)
its a good thing that @maloki and "curiosity to help some cats" encouraged me to read some Swedish today, as half of the comments (and some of the UI) are in SE! Does "borgerligt" in this context mean "add to friends/followers?"
@vfrmedia You'll figure out what it means soon enough 😆
@mcscx @tomas before looking these things up with what (very basic) Swedish I know (mostly from I'd got -rätt and -råtta mixed up and thought it was some kind of ancient Scandinavian concept of wild open areas / woods where everyone co-existed in peace with rats (and other such animals)
- although maybe I wasn't /too/ far off 😆 🐀
@lilletale Iiinteresting. Is there a mobile app?
@nev Nope, haven't found any. Yet.
@lilletale I wish it had a better name... Exciting to see this tho
@lilletale oooooh, intriguing!!
@lilletale Still very much work in progress.
@lilletale This is great! I like how it's running on an existing protocol that can interoperate with existing services.
Will check it out
@lilletale bei mir will es nicht so wirklich Bilder hoch laden :/ Hof aber sehr, dass es sich weiter entwickelt. Ich mag instagram ziemlich gern aber mag halt nicht, wo ich da meine Fotos hin hochlad und so :/
