Threads is officially starting to test ActivityPub integration - The Verge

ActivityPub is a protocol for making multiple social networking services interoperable. Services powered by ActivityPub allow users to view their profiles, followers, posts, etc. on another service, or to migrate them to another service.

Mastodon, Misskey, and others have already implemented ActivityPub, and Thread has been preparing to integrate with ActivityPub for some time.

On December 14, 2023, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg posted on Threads, ``We are beginning a test that will allow posts from your Threads account to be made available to Mastodon and other services that use the ActivityPub protocol.'' As a result, it has become clear that Threads is finally moving towards the official implementation of ActivityPub.

Connecting with other social networks through ActivityPub has been an objective of the Threads team from the beginning, with Instagram head Adam Mosseri once saying that 'decentralizing the platform is key for a new generation of creators.' We were talking.

At the start of the test, CEO Zuckerberg commented, ``By making Threads interoperable, we will be able to give our users more choice and allow our content to reach more people.'' .
