I tried Mastadon for awhile, got a list of anarchist accounts from a friend who used it. It seemed cool for the international socializing possibilities, especially if you speak additional languages that have a community on the site. However, I just lack the energy to keep up with it. It seemed to take more energy to build out and maintain than twitter, which it is seems to be a federated clone of.

Unlike raddle, which I think is an excellent replacement for reddit with the exception of a few forums that don't exist (mostly sports related). Mastadon, to me, required too many clicks to add new folks...and was used a lot more "socially" in a way that I don't particularly need social media for. I like being able to miss a few days and go through the archives to see what I missed. With mastadon, that's a super waste of time once you have enough connections that similar conversations start reiterating through your feed over time. All that being said, I would still recommend it for anyone who hasn't tried. It did seem to facilitate strong digital bonds for the folks who invest their time on it.
