There are a couple of crucial things that facebook does that I wish Diaspora could also do. Many of these such as instant message chatting , video conferencing, groups, events, calendars and photo albums are among the items currently listed in the ‘Current and Future Development’ page on the wiki.
One item that isn’t discussed is ‘Pages’. As far as facebook is concerned, a Page represents a person, group of people, organization, cause, event, etc. etc. which most of the time are not the person managing the page. Pages allow a member to create and manage it who already has an account elsewhere, but they can also be managed by several users, as admins or moderators alike.
I feel that this is a feature sorely lacking in Diaspora, because although I could just create a second account specifically for a ‘page’ or business or something, I can’t manage that page/account and post as that account while currently logged into my own diaspora account. What are your thoughts? Can I get some likes for this feature so it can be added to the following page? https://wiki.diasporafoundation.org/Current_and_future_development
