@sir how does word processing translate to social networking at all?
@ThatSoftwareBat it's all the same shit. Proprietary document formats or proprietary protocols, there's no difference
@ThatSoftwareBat a social network isn't a protocol only as a business decision. Social networks embrace interopability as a hook to get users in but throw it away as soon as it's not necessary.

But some people will... and when it comes out that someone has been, then switching to another is possible with little fanfare. The same does not hold of Facebook et al.

@ThatSoftwareBat but users on Facebook have no where else to go. They leave behind all of their friends and family if they leave.
The social network of the future: No ads, no corporate surveillance, ethical design, and decentralization! Own your data with Mastodon!
