Bluesky was originally created by Twitter founder Jack Dorsey as a project called to life. However, as of 2021, Bluesky is an independent company and is no longer funded by Twitter. Bluesky’s CEO is Jay Graber, a software development expert. Jack Dorsey and Jeremie Miller, the developer of the XMPP/Jabber communication protocol, are members of the board of directors, according to a tweet from Bluesky.
Bluesky is a new microblogging platform that looks and works similar to Twitter. The company behind the app aims to develop a protocol for decentralized networks on the Internet. This protocol enables a decentralized structure of the network and the exchange of content across different online services. Twitter founder Jack Dorsey explained the vision and technology behind Bluesky, an innovative social network.
- Bluesky differs from traditional social networks because of its federated structure. Instead of storing data on a central server, Bluesky allows users and companies to choose their own servers for data storage. The AT protocol ensures smooth communication between these different servers. As Dorsey points out, “There isn’t just one site running the network, there can be many.
- Bluesky is striving to move from platforms to protocols, eliminating the need for users to rely on private companies to communicate with each other. “Public debate should take place outside of private companies, just like the Internet itself,” says the technology company’s website.
Bluesky’s goal is to create a new foundation for social networks that gives creators platform independence, developers the freedom to develop, and users the power to shape their experiences. Another advantage of Bluesky is that users have control over the algorithm.
