Mastodon is not, and possibly never can be, the platform which will break the Twitter/Facebook/Youtube monopoly.
It is a Twitter-clone with perhaps something more of a social dimension.
But to really take on Big Tech what the Fediverse needs is a viable alternative to Facebook and neither Mastodon nor Pleroma fulfills that function.
Mastodon/Pleroma are too ephemeral. Real connections can be made, but they are the exception that proves the rule.
The fediverse must evolve.
@dublinux My money is on Hubzilla on that front, but
Have you used Hubzilla?
@dublinux A bit here and there. Nobody I know uses it and it's still under development afaik but it has pretty much all the stuff you'd want to use FB for and it's nominally AP-compatible
The social network of the future: No ads, no corporate surveillance, ethical design, and decentralization! Own your data with Mastodon!
