    Pros: 

    Many communities with different flavors, but connected via ActivityPub federation

    Cons: 

    None?

    Mastodon development is very active, and Eugen (@Gargron@mastodon.social) is incredibly responsive to the community. Whether you're spinning up your own instance or joining a community you're interested in, it's a fun place to have real conversations.

  • Pros: 

    The software product that gave me the most joy in 2017

    Cons: 

    Not enough people I know in real life are on it yet

    I dumped Facebook in ~2013, and I don't tweet (I do reply there for people I know). Whatever fleeting thoughts I feel like sharing with the universe, I send through Mastodon. I'd been waiting for a federated, non-commercial social network since maybe 2008, and I finally found one with some traction in April of last year. Mastodon was my personal Product of the Year. Get on it.
