Visibility and discoverability have been much discussed topics recently, especially when Mastodon announced the introduction of a full-text search. Protecting users from abusive searches is a major concern. In the case where one instance follows another, this results in a different complexity of the problem, especially if there are two software applications that specialize in events but have a completely different approach to them, like Gancio, Mobilizon or a local community site run with WordPress.
We would like to find a common denominator for this problem and have therefore opened a topic on Socialhub. We look forward to everyone contributing to the discussion or just leaving some thoughts in the replies.
