Thanks I didn't know that!
I would definitely join those also spread awareness towards my friends and family as well.

I have seen so many small scale social networks come and go. It's not about privacy. It's. It about design. It's not about technology.

It's about the network.

When I received the 10th email from people I know asking me to join Facebook, I know I must check it out.

This is the reason why it's really difficult to build a new thing that compete with them.

Diaspora*, Friendica, Hubzilla are all here for around 10 years, so that is pretty stable.others have gone, right, or have evolved into different networks. The communities are small and narrow (although Mastodon seems to be a bit more - that goes to the design, they're better at that than others, it looks nicer).

In the end it's you to decide. People do poke me to join WhatsApp to stay in Contact. I tell them I use Matrix. They wouldn't use my network, I won't use theirs. For me that's okay. I miss quite some contact but for me that's okay. I know it is not like that for everyone.
