New Social Platforms

One of the things I’ve learned over the years is that it’s hard to know in advance which social media platforms are going to take off and which are going to fizzle. So I’ve gotten into the habit of establishing a presence on the new ones that pop up and then letting the universe decide.

I’m currently set up on Mastodon and Post. These seem to be leading contenders to reap the rewards of mass dissatisfaction with “new” Twitter. I put up a profile on Mastodon in July of 2021 and Post I just got started with this fall when I got my invite into the beta. Both are still fairly primitive in terms of user interface and actual engagement but whatever, it’s got to start somewhere.

You can follow me on either service using the links below. I’m following people back in these early days, so let’s see where it goes.
