Bluesky Social Network Spreads Its Wings with Public Access and a Butterfly Logo
Bluesky, the exclusive decentralized social network, is dipping its toes into the wider world. Jay Graber, the CEO, spilled the beans this week, revealing that now anyone, logged in or not, can check out Bluesky posts. This means you can effortlessly share your content with pals who aren’t part of the Bluesky clique. While Bluesky has amassed around 2.6 million users, it’s still playing it cool with limited signups for the broader public.
They’ve got this fresh web interface in town, teased last month, making Bluesky posts open to a bigger crowd. To mark this shift, Bluesky’s also got a new logo – no more generic cloudy sky, now it’s all about the blue butterfly. Jay Graber captured the vibe perfectly in a blog post, saying, “Like a butterfly emerging from its chrysalis, we are starting to open up.” And get this, lots of Bluesky users were already rocking the butterfly emoji to represent the social network, so Bluesky went, “We love it,” and adopted it as their official symbol. Fly on, Bluesky!
