    Small, geeky community. Growth will be constrained by the DIY aspect, but that's part of the point.

    Pros: 

    An excellent alternative to Twitter or Facebook. Self hosted so you own your content. Awesome community.

    Cons: 

    Limited template choices at the moment

    Micro.blog is the social network that people should be using.

I like the simplicity of the design and the ease at which posts can be made. It benefits from a fun and engaging community without all the nonsense and harassment found with other platforms.
