petermolnaryesterday, during the VirtHWC we talked about a probably important approach, especially for gen 3 and gen 4, which we haven't yet included: number of followers. Is anyone "backfeeding" those numbers from silos to display on their site already?
petermolnarwe also concluded that with a special mf2 markup and webmentions, we could let sites know we're following them and for those who don't support this extra, it will be a simple webmention to their main domain
sknebelI'm also not convinced following and "open" announcement of following have to be connected. what's wrong with follow posts for the latter? (which a reader could offer to automatically generate/update)
