I’m genuinely looking to dump Facebook and I’m sure I’m not alone (!!!)
Discourse is clearly a
great much better alternative to Facebook & Yahoo Groups. (and others)
But how about modifying it to support befriending and personal feeds with associated privacy control?
Would this be a total rewrite?
Am I totally off here?
I guess this might not scale as sign-ups iterated recursively? You could quickly chew up server capacity and have to migrate to bigger and bigger machines?
If not Discourse, what social network platform could I replace Facebook with?
(Just seen https://meta.discourse.org/t/ability-to-follow-and-friend-other-users/1584, feel free to close if you believe this is not adding anything)
