RSS3 is developing a MetaMask Snap which aggregates, streams, and displays decentralized social information, such as content from Farcaster and Lens Protocol. This Snap aggregates all supported decentralized social graphs and provides close to real-time notifications of Web3 social activities.
RSS3-Social-Notifier-Snap: Decentralized Social Aggregator
Currently, the RSS3 Social Notifier Snap allows users to sync and aggregate all of their existing on-chain and decentralized social graphs (on Farcaster, Lens Protocol and Crossbell for now) into MetaMask Flask. After installation, users would receive a simple human-readable style of pop-up notifications on their MetaMask Flask whenever their friends post something on these networks, allowing users to easily stay up-to-date with their friends’ latest social activities.
“Basically our snap enables users to catch up with their following’s latest activities – just like having an RSS reader integrated into their wallet. This Snap is the very first one to showcase the practicality of social modules within MetaMask Snaps. We believe this is an important milestone and highlights the potential of MetaMask Snaps as a gateway to diverse Web3 interactions beyond cryptocurrency transactions.” – Henry, CTO of RSS3
“This Snap is built with the composability and interoperability that Web3 promises – one should be able to access any public information with any client, and the MetaMask Snap makes it possible for RSS3 to bridge such information to a crypto wallet. RSS3, as the Open Information Layer will continue aggregating and bridging information to all through any application” – Joshua, Founder of RSS3
Currently, in the final stages of development, this Snap is available for trial through MetaMask Flask, the developer version of MetaMask. Interested parties are encouraged to contribute to the open-source project at the link.
MetaMask Snaps allows users to add features and functionality to their MetaMask wallet. Individual snaps are features created by third-party developers that MetaMask users can install directly into their wallets.
Invitation for Future Collaborations
RSS3 is exploring collaborative opportunities to support the development of innovative Snaps using RSS3’s open information. This effort aims to make Web3 more user-friendly and accessible, and RSS3 welcomes builders to reach out and join this initiative.
RSS3 is the Open Information Layer, structuring open information for the next Twitter, Google, and OpenAI. RSS3 contributes to construction of the Open Web by enhancing the free flow of open information. Visit rss3.io to learn more.
