Love initiatives like this. It can and must not be the truth that the big companies keep us in their power just for the money they earn of try to earn with us.

Pros:

Opensource alternative to the big players

Cons:

A bit hard to understand how the whole network works together

I'm really worried about the future of instagram, I see it becoming like Facebook: bloated by ads.

I can't wait to have all my friends on a decentralized and ads free platform powered by the open-source community :)

Pros:

Great design, decentralized, open-source and ads free

Cons:

No as many users as instagram, but it'll change for sure :)

Provides more security and less theft of advertisement by way of coroproate expolitation.

Cons:

Still early in its adoption, feature parity on its way

well, I love it :)

Pros:

open source great UI and UX no ads and tracking filters you already know from Instagram two profile layouts to choose from

Cons:

federation is unfinished no mobile apps yet, but I believe web app is great enough
