Mastodon seems fresh and modern! But all these different instances makes it feel overwhelming. How do I know I'll join the "right" instance? What happens if my instance gets taken down? Can my friends join my instance or could they suddenly close registrations for my instance?

Thanks for the reply! I actually already knew about Gnu social as I've been using Quitter (a twitter replacement) for some time (tbh I've mostly been lurking there) which is built around that platform.

What about more forum-like websites?

I'm asking because I want to join and interact with more like-minded people, but also for inspiration as I am working on creating an online community for leftists myself.
