I gave a short (15 min) talk at CSVConf last month about federated social media, trust, and how we can better define community boundaries. In particular, I discuss the importance of local-only content that never federates, and the ability to tag other servers as "trusted" and federate things only to those servers. That last idea is something I call "neighborhoods".

@darius This was really interesting! It's good to hear more about where your thinking is on the future of friend camp-likes.

It's also got me thinking about how the technical and social networks influence each other, and how you could build something like the neighbourhood concept on the software layer, but it would never match up on a hardware network level.
