Bluesky: a social network that attracts all users
The Bluesky social network became available to everyone after a closed beta testing that lasted about a year. The platform, developed by Jack Dorsey, co-founder of X, formerly known as Twitter, was previously invite-only.
Bluesky - an alternative social network
Open access to Bluesky for all, after the removal of restrictions on registration, can lead to a significant increase in the number of users, which currently has more than 3 millions of people.
The essence of the platform and features
Bluesky is a social network similar to Twitter and Threads, but differs in concept and functionality. According to information published on TechCrunch, this social network is based on the open protocol AT Protocol, which makes it decentralized. The platform's code is completely open, which provides users with transparency about development and operation. In addition, developers can create their own applications, from custom algorithms to entire social networks.
This approach allows users to have more control over the platform. In particular, they can decide for themselves how to consume content, which distinguishes Bluesky from centralized social networks such as Facebook, X and TikTok, where users cannot change algorithms or reject updates they don't like.
