Also, this is how I see the post on mastodon (see image). A title with a link to the article, that seem like the correct way to show it 🙂

@futureisfoss @trom Nice. I wish tho that the federated platforms would display the original content as default. Like how did you read the article? On Friendica? If so you went back and commented on the link from mastodon? Am curious...

I had to open that link in my browser, like how I would read an article if you just posted its link. I went back to my mastodon client to reply.

Not all of your posts are shown like this, but the articles definitely are. From what I understand, it'll detect if its an article by seeing if the post has a title, so on mastodon these ones will show the title with the link to the full article.

@tio @trom
I actually did try out friendica using an account I had on venera.social because you said. Now I thought to give it a second shot since they made it work with all mastodon clients. I can have that old familiar look of mastodon while having the awesome features of friendica. So I tried it using fedilab and it was just too buggy, I couldn't even see my global timeline button. But I think this is the issue of the app itself and not friendica.

@tio @trom
Fedilab is currently trying to rewrite some of their code to improve UI and stuff - toot.fedilab.app/@apps/1073283

I'll just ping @apps here so maybe they would look into fixing these issues. Fedilab is actually the only app I could find on fdroid that explicitly said it supports friendica. But the friendica support on it is pretty bad right now, and there's definitely room for improvement.

Friendica is so underrated right now, and part of the reason is that it don't have a good mobile app
