[The following is a chat log from a Slack group]
How’s this for a new social network?
- There are no likes
- There are no followers or “friends”; they’re called contacts
- There are no “re-posts”; you can only share someone else’s post with your contacts and add your comment to it (similar to Tiwtter’s quote-tweet), but people can’t reply to your “share”. Your “share” of the post appears under the original post’s replies, and any time someone who saw you share the post would want to discuss it, replies have to be made on the original post.
sounds fancy. I "like" the no-likes part. Would the contact thing be equal to what we currently call "mutuals"? i.e. both parts have to actively seek the connection.
