The strength of unity and federation are unquestionable. – Rig Veda

You may have heard about Flipboard's recent support of the Activity Pub protocol. How does one find these Flipboard Accounts and Magazines to follow? One approach is to visit our Mastodon instance flipboard.social and search for flipboard.com to find profiles and Magazines to follow.

However, without an actual account on our Mastodon Server, you are limited in the content you can find where you can see individual posts along with profiles.

Another approach is to federate with flipboard.com and then you can receive all the posts from our federated Flipboard Accounts and Magazines via search on your own local instance, receiving all the same results. From Mastodon, this is easy to do from the administrative relays page on your instance

Click the button to add a new relay and add the url https://flipboard.com/actor/inbox into the edit box and then click Save And Enable.

We check daily for new requests and will review the request for approval. That's It! You can always disable the federation on your side if for some reason you decide to stop or halt receiving posts from flipboard.com.

I have not written a blog post, evidently, in 8 years when I documented a bike ride across New York State, which I highly recommend to any road bike enthusiasts. Reach out to me if you want to learn more about that trip.

However, with the looming Bluesky Bridge work, I decided to dust off the Markdown to lend not only my personal support, but as the Mastodon admin of flipboard.social, our full support of BridgyFed.

First off, kudos to Ryan Barrett for his transparency regarding this open source work, one of the principles of the Open Social Web, as well as his thoughtful and mature responses to concerns raised and proposed changes. Brave and thoughtful developers like Ryan everyday are building services we all can choose to be a part of or not, thanks to federation, and we should celebrate those efforts rather than allow the vitriol that has existed on closed networks to permeate this world.

Any software that helps marshal the ability of communities to connect as well as the moderation tooling that allow us as individuals to navigate these communities safely, is a win for federation.
