Hi. I'd like to propose Dev.to implement ActivityPub. ActivityPub is a W3C standard for decentralized social networking. It's currently implemented by a few different projects, including Pleroma, Mastodon, PeerTube, Plume, PixelFed, and more are coming every day. GitLab and Ghost both have open issues discussing adding support.
Adding ActivityPub support would expose dev.to to more than a million new users. Users on the other platforms would be able to follow and interact with dev.to users. Dev.to would gain much larger exposure, while still retaining full control of its own moderation. The lead dev of Mastodon wrote a post that explains the benefits here
Thanks for taking the time to read this. If you have any questions, I'd be happy to answer them here or over at my Mastodon account.
