Attached: 1 image #Bluesky just added algorithmic content filtering. And here I find the most obvious problem. They give you the option to show violent hate groups. Which means they know their platform could be used to spread hate but are offloading moderation to users and algorithms. What can ever go wrong? Well, it means that if people deliberately want the option to show violent political groups, Bluesky has given them the welcome mat. And based on what happened on Twitter, we know what happens.
Interesting discussion on the approach to content filtering at #BlueSky.
@sharearea I’m also not a #BlueSky user yet but I do like the account portability aspect. Currently with #Mastodon, if you switch instances you can’t carry over your posts. You can manually copy them over but then you lose all timestamp information. And theoretically I like the Speech -> Reach layer separation, which is tied with account portability, though it remains to be seen how it’ll really work. Elon promised that over at Twitter but didn’t follow through. Mastodon is no better in this aspect so it’s lead some, like myself, to attempt to keep post data in our own databases and push them out to the #fediverse.
