It does not. It’s a trade-off.

While I tell people to use e-mail or XMPP to write me private messages,
something that they want to be announced publicly needs to be on
Facebook as long as that’s what most people in the audience use.

Maybe some time in the future I can use OStatus for that.

They’re trying to do so with LibreJS. LibreJS is horribly slow. Also I
don’t need it, because the sites I use either don’t require JavaScript
(most of them) or really are proprietary (Facebook and university sites).
