@markmcelroy Intent is big for me. I like being in control of my data, similar to you, but today I unfollowed someone who uses the WP masto plugin because the content here makes no sense. Sometimes it seems as if they are responding to a thread somewhere else. I have no context for the toot. I'm here for conversation and sharing with others. I don't use social networks as a feed. I'm here for collaboration.
@steven_ovadia I think that’s probably the right mindset. I would like eventually to have “one site to rule them all” — in terms of content I create — where participation on various channels is archived. But maybe that’s not necessary. I don’t, for example, get much value out of the Micro.Blog posts now being archived at markmcelroy.com. Good food for thought — thanks!
