The user's software or service is transparent to viewers, who can get your status updates on their own sites and reply, like, or re-post your updates. OStatus is an open standard for distributed status updates that references a suite of open protocols including Atom, Activity Streams, PubSubHubbub, Salmon, Webfinger, which allows different messaging hubs to route status updates between users in near real-time. *In January 2012, a W3C Community Group opened to maintain and further develop the technology.
