solid Twitter thread about the need for social networks to evolve https://twitter.com/jvelo/status/1126014424215621633
@jalcine Fuck yes. This harmonizes very well with my antipathy towards "The Feed", and it's exactly this next generation of social media that I want to help build.
I'm intrigued by the proposition that it's going to be desktop-first installable applications, though. I can't help but think that being as low friction as possible is a boon in this context, and downloading and installing apps is a pretty big speed bump.
@jalcine I say much the same thing about search!
@jalcine I don't have the full picture though, just what I think is the start of one.
