ActivityPub is a social-networking protocol that provides a client/server API for creating, updating and deleting content, as well as a federated server-to-server API for delivering notifications and content. ActivityPub is a standard for the Internet in the Social Web Networking Group of the W3C. At an earlier stage, the name of the protocol was "ActivityPump", but it was felt that ActivityPub better indicated the cross-publishing purpose of the protocol. It learned from the experiences with the older standard called OStatus. In January 2018, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) published the ActivityPub standard as a Recommendation.
