Thought experiment: If FAANG (Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, Google) is the modern-day AOL c. 1999, what is the modern-day equivalent of the Internet at the time that eventually outgrew AOL?

@kiLLe512 Welcome. I too am discovering this brave new network. How did you come to find out about mastodon?

I feel like the right answer is to run my own mastodon instance and domain, but it feels a little hard at the moment.

twitter.com/search?q=mstdn.io

Ok can people please suggest cool things to follow on mastodon?
