With Mastodon having a few years under it's belt now, how are your friends/family reacting to you using it vs. the traditional social media outlets? Have you been able to convince anyone to come over and check it out or start using it exclusively? What are the arguments that you're hearing for using Facebook/IG/Twitter, etc. over Mastodon?


@cooper My SO loves to scroll endlessly on FB and instagram, a slave to the algorithm. She’s coming around now and at least admits she’s doesn’t WANT to use them. Facebook could be deleted and forgotten, but she uses IG for all information.
I’ve convinced her that the future is decentralized services and internet, so she’s interested. I’m hoping between mastodon and pixelfed she can find a replacement
