@josias I want some place where I am not tracked and traced or censored. I sometimes want to express myself. I sometimes want to see what people are saying in places free from censorship. I find it reasonably useful as a way to destress or take a break in moderation.
I don't actually find it that addictive. Not sure why, maybe when you get older the novelty of the internet wears off a bit?
People post a fair amount of dumb stuff but there's interesting content interspersed.
@Columbkille Hmm. I really should have put "ideology" somewhere on there, but alas, room ran out.
Personally, I've never really used Facebook or any social network that censors and tracks (the only exception being Twitter for a few months). I've spent almost my social media life on the Fediverse, so I don't have much to compare it to. Sure, I like the ideals of the Fediverse. I've preached them as much as anyone and despise Facebook's atrocities, but I also take them for granted more than others might.
