Replacement of Open MicroBlogging standard
- OStatus, while intended to attack the same problem as OMB, approaches the problem rather differently. First, rather than being a stand-alone spec it builds upon several existing (and evolving) open web standards including: PubSubHubBub, WebFinger, Activity Streams and Salmon. OStatus serves more as a usage profile than a brand new spec. As to the naming specifically, there is nothing inherently "micro" about the protocol (or it's usage), and it's a term we're consciously trying to outgrow. http://ostatus.org/faq
driven by StatusNet
- which became GNU Social
seems like a lot of overlap with Google Buzz
