What are your thoughts on Mastodon? 🐘🤔

Let's not forget that two of the most popular websites in the world (Wikipedia and Reddit) are still very much Web 1.0 and are supported by fairly unobtrusive ad/donation models.
Agree about Wikipedia, John.

Apart from my occasional monetary donations, I also make the very occasional substantive contribution as well.
Maybe we're taking a step back to a simpler, kinder, web.
Maybe ...
But more likely not the case, now that electric Jesus has bought twatter ... :(.

Well how odd. I mean, thanks @Kevin, I read your entire explanation (I had already gotten wind of M being a Twitter 'alternative') but what really got me is that I happened to photograph a graffiti yesterday afternoon that ties in unexpectedly

Let's say that there are two local instance users, John Doe and Jane Doe.

I just discovered that there is also a distributed, open-source, photo sharing platform, a la Instagram


I'm on there too now.

Looks like a really interesting and strong platform.

Only why they had to copy Instacrap verbatim? What kind of a role model is that anyway?! 😅

I don't really use Twitter so I'm only mildly curious about Mastodon. I like its distributed, open-source model but that will probably limit it as well. If a significant number of my friends started using I'd also use it but I doubt they'll use it.

Follow me on Vero!

I like the aesthetic of Vero. Though who knows what new platform will be the next big thing. In the end, I will probably just end up not involved in any of them, leaving more time to be creative just for me (and you people here on Cameraderie.)
