@pixelfed If you support stories I'll probably get like 50 people to switch, that's the main feature that Instagram has over Pixelfed.

@DashEquals
Yeah, but there have to priotise mobile app though since that where people will usually browse the website.
@pixelfed

@ahmd_amsyr @pixelfed That's true, but a mobile app is pretty easy in comparison to stories.

@DashEquals
Yeah and stories must have high storage and bandwidth to operate. So good luck to @dansup
@pixelfed

@ahmd_amsyr @DashEquals @pixelfed You can store 1TB of media using wasabi ($5/mth) or DO Spaces ($20+/mth). To give you an idea of how much media that is, pixelfed.social hosts over 50k media (images/video) using only 13.5gb of storage.

An 8mb photo gets optimized to around 260kb on average.

In the future you will be able to shard media across various CDNs/accounts for redundancy/cost efficiency with any S3 compatible API object storage provider.

@DashEquals @ahmd_amsyr @pixelfed Not officially, but it has worked since the beginning. The only issue is the optimization pipeline. It expects local files. I look forward to shipping proper S3 support in a future release!

@dansup @ahmd_amsyr @pixelfed Ah, great! I don't have enough local storage so once S3 is fully compatible I'll be able to set up my instance!

@DashEquals @dansup @ahmd_amsyr @pixelfed same here, looking to do a S3 and Cloudfront deployment on AWS to give speed to serving images
