A colleague of mine is looking for a facebook alternative. He is using https://www.disciplemedia.com/ now but that is quite expensive for his 10.000 users. How could we use opefire plus tools plus a modern interface to achieve this? In our project Citizens Island, which is a personal virtual machine, we already use Pade. Thank you in advance, Roland email@example.com
I’m not sure there’s going to be useful way to overlay social media over a messaging application. I’d look at something like Mastodon or Diaspora.
You can see a social media action,a “post”, as a message to a person or group. A social media platform is than a presentation of messages which are stored in a database.
Only a “facebook like” user interface is needed, I think, as Openfire brings everything else that is needed. What do you think?
I agree and once upon a time there was an Ignite project called Openfire-Social that did that using WordPress and BuddyPress all integrated with Openfire.
I am currently juggling too many projects and one of them is reviving the one-social-web project done by Vodafone Research. See https://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/socialweb/XMPPAN~1.PDF
I have managed to build the Openfire plugin, but that is as far as I have got for now.
Wow that is fantastic! How can I help?
