Is it possible to have closed/private groups to share interests and ideas and organise ourselves? Or is that an add on thing through a different platform?
Am loving the fediverse experience so far. The more familiar I get with how it works the more awesome it is!!!


@Elissa I'm afraid Groups is the one crucial functionality Fediverse is missing at the moment. 😿 Friendica and Hubzilla have "forums" that work best inside these federating parts (so not with Mastodon). AFAIK their forums are public. Smithereen has groups, but it's a new Fediverse project in alpha/beta stage, its groups work only within itself. For Mastodon there is a Guppe "addon" - gup.pe - but again it's public posts. I hope private groups will appear (some day?)
