The most important open and standard technologies to decentralize the web are openid and rss / atom feeds.
Let’s see how far social networks went in supporting these technologies.
It turned out, gplus provides openid, and works as rss reader (they killed reader for that).
That means we cannot follow google users from here(gplus is not federated), while they actually can follow us by subscribing to our atom feeds.
I remember there were discussions and bugs opened.
Just want to say - these features may deserve more attention.
