will Mastodon ever be as big a platform for celebrities and politicians? probably not. we were pretty hostile to Wesley. we tend to use this for the community aspects offered by other social media sites and we tend to be pretty hostile to the more commercial aspects of such sites.
basically we're like "ok, we can get the good things offered by your site without all the bad things" - for people who don't agree that celebrity drama is one of the bad things, they'll probably always be on birdsite
the mindset with Facebook is like: OMG, people are on our site a lot, but they're still searching with other sites. how do we make our site a search engine? how do we make sure people never leave our site?
that's not the sort of attitude that community-based services have. we can't be everything to everyone, and we don't want to be.
masto.jews.international is a pluralistic, pro-Diaspora Mastodon instance for Jews to conspire, socialize, and debate together.
