Social Media with Fewer Narcissists

If you encountered this post via a social network that was recently acquired by a narcissist, you may be interested to know that I have a presence on Mastodon . I'm putting the link to it here because, while Noel Skum has been forced to backpedal on banning links to other social networks (which would have made him editorially liable for everything on the platform), I'm not daft enough to trust him, and besides, I don't expect that platform to survive more than a year (yes, I know he's stepping down as CEO, but he'll still own it, and he's not likely to appoint anyone other than a yes-man to run it as his proxy). Decentralised, non-commercial systems look to be the way forward for social media.
