Kris^ (@krzysu) • Hey
Web3. Ethereum. DeFi. NFTs.
@lens/avara @lens/lens 🌿
- I'm testing new Orb, how do you like it?
- Lens is opening up the garden. Join the Space on Buttrfly today to learn more!
- Officially introducing t2 as the **publishing home** on @lens/lensprotocol! We’re bringing a social layer to reading and writing, with a seamless mobile experience via @lens/orbapp.
Now available to everyone with a Lens handle, activate your t2 account today 👉 https://app.t2.world/t2xlens?
- Today, we proudly introduce ourselves as Avara.
Avara is the home to some of the most innovative web3 brands: Aave, Lens Protocol, GHO, Sonar, and now Family, all building towards a people powered internet that benefits all.
We're thrilled to announce the acquisition of Family. With Family, led by Benji Taylor, we're reinforcing our commitment to making web3 accessible through world class product design.
Read the genesis post, penned by @lens/stani.
- For anyone interested in building with @lensprotocol.lens Open Actions: I created a boilerplate repo for writing an Open Actions Module with Solidity + Foundry. It includes all the essential setup files so you can immediately start writing the contract! 🧑💻
- It has never been easier to start building on Lens 👷🚧
- This isn’t the next Facebook.
This is a social operating system.
Every existing app and platform can already benefit from becoming Lens-compatible. When developers “port” their apps over it’s positive-sum for everyone. More Data + More Users = More Value.
To those building natively here:
There is room for apps of all scales and purposes, similar to a desktop or mobile operating system. Some apps here will become giants akin to Microsoft Office, Google Chrome, or Adobe Photoshop—universal platforms that become integral to the user's experience. These 'giant' apps are used by virtually everyone because of their broad utility and the network effects that come with widespread adoption.
Meanwhile, other apps will carve out their own niches, much like CCleaner, Notepad++, VLC, or WinZip. These are the 'utility' apps that perform specific tasks exceptionally well. They may not be universally known but they garner loyal user bases because they fill a need, solve a problem, or simply do their job better than any other app out there.
I encourage every dev right now to take a moment and look at the apps installed on their device. Lens has the capacity to host a similar diversity of applications, each contributing to the overall “Social Operating System” experience in its own unique way. Rather than compete with Facebook I would recommend building with the “Operating System” framework in mind and trying to solve your own niche problem/task first.
Not everything has to compete with Facebook’s scale!
A fun brainstorming game to play
Find an App or System Setting in your device’s OS and then ask ChatGPT for the Social OS equivalent.
Use this prompt:
I'm building apps on Lens (a new social networking protocol) and I'm told to think of it not as a Facebook competitor but as a new Social Operating System. They say there's room for apps at all levels, the same as a desktop or mobile operating system. So in that context, what would be the “Google Maps” of this OS?
* Social Network Navigation App: This app would map out the social connections between users, helping them navigate through their relationships. It could provide insights into how different users are connected, recommend potential new connections based on shared interests or mutual friends, and suggest paths for reaching out to new people.
* Event Discovery and Navigation App: This app could help users find and navigate to events within the social network. Just as Google Maps can help you find physical events and navigate to them, this app could help you find online events happening within the social network and guide you on how to participate.
* Content Discovery and Navigation App: This app would guide users through the vast amount of content available in the network. It could use algorithms to recommend content based on users' preferences and behavior, help users explore new types of content, and provide tools to navigate through different content categories.
* Trend Mapping App: This app could track and visualize trends within the social network. It could show what topics are currently popular, how trends evolve over time, and how they spread across the network.
What would be the Logic Pro?
* Social Media Music Studio: This app would allow users to create, edit, and mix music or audio tracks directly within the social OS. Users could then share their creations on their social profiles or collaborate with others. Features might include various sound samples, mixing tools, and the ability to record directly into the app.
* Podcast Creation App: This app would provide all the tools necessary to record, edit, and publish podcasts. It could also integrate with various social platforms to promote episodes, engage with listeners, and gather analytics.
* Audio Storytelling App: This app could provide a platform for users to create and share audio stories or spoken word content. It could offer tools for adding sound effects, music, and other audio enhancements.
* Collaborative Music App: This app would allow users to collaborate on music projects, providing a shared space where they can contribute tracks, mix together, and share their creations.
What would be the utility apps?
* Privacy Management App
* Content Scheduling App
* Analytics App
* Curation App
* Identity Verification App
* Anti-Harassment App
* Cross-Platform Search App
There’s a ton of opportunity here to build social apps which can sustain your lifestyle without needing to reach 1 billion users.
- **Introducing Lens Protocol V2**
Lens Protocol V2 – the next chapter in the evolution of Lens. V2 brings even greater control to builders and integrators as well as people exploring web3-powered experiences. Lens V2 retains its characteristic open design space that gives developers and integrators the choice.
Join us in shaping the future. Dive into the Lens Protocol V2 Open Source Codebase on Github: https://github.com/lens-protocol/core/tree/v2
Explore all the latest V2 features in our latest Mirror post:
- We’re testing a new invite system for Lens, allowing selected users to bring their connections into the Lens community.
If you’re a selected Lens user, you now have the opportunity to invite your connections to experience the unique features and benefits of web3 social.
You can check if you have invites waiting for you at https://invites.lens.xyz
If this test phase demonstrates promising results, we’re excited about the potential to broaden the rollout of this invite system to the Lens community.
- so Instagram's Threads is not available in Europe because it violates EU laws on users privacy, still got more than 100mln users worldwide in a few days. 🤦
what can we learn from that?
- do you know that all packages from lens-sdk are available as next releases and we release them often? so if you are waiting for that bugfix or "the next big thing", maybe it's already available there 🤔
- We're proud to introduce Lens Improvement Proposals (LIPs). This open, collaborative process will guide the future development of Lens Protocol.
Taking inspiration from the successful Ethereum Improvement Proposals (EIPs) and Aave Improvement Proposals (AIPs), LIPs takes a step towards decentralized governance. The LIPs process will foster an inclusive, transparent and collaborative environment.
You will find how to participate in LIPs in the Lens Protocol’s GitHub repository, which streamlines the community participation process. It gives anyone the chance to submit proposals, and promotes open discussion.
Let's dive into the first three proposals that are live today:
LIP-0: Establishing an Open Governance Model. A process where the Lens community can propose improvements to Lens Protocol. From the submission of proposals to transparent discussions — we aim to foster an open, collaborative, and inclusive decision-making governance model.
LIP-1: Open Standards for Algorithms. A proposal to establish open standards for algorithms — based on the open Lens data layer — that will encourage the development of third-party algorithms, diverse experiences and provide user choice.
LIP-2: Open Standards for Metadata. An initiative to establish metadata standards for Lens Protocol, promoting transparency, interoperability, and user empowerment.
Take a deep dive into LIPs in our latest blog: https://mirror.xyz/lensprotocol.eth/8uxN9fMYBOqyDW5yZ6O3DDdOLEv1jJtxcw9qk4c4wgM
LIPs are our next step in enabling community involvement in shaping Lens Protocol's future.

- Introducing the Lens SDK – your new go-to toolkit to create powerful experiences & applications for the social layer of Web3.
Developers rejoice! We have lowered the barrier to entry and made it easier than ever to create innovative, powerful, and engaging Lens apps and experiences. With the new Lens SDK you can plug into the Web3 social layer with just 10 lines of code.
Pick and choose the features you want - only the components you use contribute to the final size of your app bundles. These capabilities are all handled by the Lens SDK, allowing developers to focus on their core features.
The SDK is modular and composable. It seamlessly integrates with other Web3 projects, protocols, and tools such as @litprotocol.lens to enable token-gated publications.
Mobile apps have been some of the biggest success stories on Lens. The new SDK doubles down on mobile support, starting with React Native. With the SDK, you can build polished mobile apps without underlying knowledge of the Lens API or Lens Protocol.
Come build the future on the social layer of Web3.
Get started in our dev docs: https://docs.lens.xyz/docs/sdk-react-intro and dive into our latest blog here: https://mirror.xyz/lensprotocol.eth/LtJBLD6zX_P9EYdsJ2DrT9RaCbiE2vvtajF4Md6wHr0
- .@LensProtocol applications have experienced a significant increase in daily active users, growing by 9x in the last six months.
This surge has been concentrated in social media-based applications, with 44% of active users on @lensterxyz, 23% on @phaverapp, and 12% on @orbapp_. https://t.co/vFrTH8JwGR
- The early version of auto-generated reference documentation for Lens SDKs is available here, let me know if you find it helpful at all!

what do you think about very detailed, low-level, reference documentation for lens SDK in this form? It is generated from the source code thanks to typedoc. It will be an addition to handwritten guides/tutorials/recipes available on our official documentation page.
- I love videos from this channel! He is talking about things that we all know (or are easy to figure out if you try) but most people are afraid to speak up about or just take for granted.
ie. How America Got Hooked On Useless Corporate Consulting
- LensReact Hooks SDK Made Simple: A Quick Start Guide for Developers
The Lens SDK includes a collection of React Hooks containing all you need to interact with the Lens Protocol.
In this video you'll learn how to get started building on Lens in only a couple of minutes using the Lens React Hooks SDK.
- We've just released `@firstname.lastname@example.org` 🌿
- Added support for token-gated posts and comments using Lit Protocol.
- Updated all hooks/flow requiring `observerId` to automatically use Active Profile Id.
- Added appId to LensConfig. It is used when creating publications.
We also have a new `@email@example.com` package with defaults and support for web-only development 👷♀️🕸️
Includes support for token-gated posts via WebCrypto API (!) 🔐
If you are building for the web, you better migrate to `@lens-protocol/react-web` - it's basically the same package but with better support for the browser environment.

- I have a few questions for my Lens #builders fam:
- what programming language and environment do you use? (web, mobile, server, CLI, ???)
- what libraries or packages do you use to make your work easier?
i.e. I see a lot of people writing GraphQL queries to directly interact with the Lens API or even trying to interact with Lens smart contracts, but I know there are easier ways to do it!
