Why Mastodon then? I love open source. It's federated. It has people behind the rules. There's no publicity. You choose what you want to see. There are no stupid algorithms. There are so many options for you to join. It's humane. There are real people checking things. You can have privacy because your data isn't being exploited. And I like to be connected with other people who have similar points of view on things and with others whose points of view are different too.
