LinkedIn is actually, along with Mastodon, one of the best social networks out there. Sure, sometimes my feed is puffing of vain celebrations, recruitment ads and people patting each other on the back, but that is easily fixed by being strict about who you follow. The rest of the content is golden.
I've also yet to see any negativity-filled bullshit or hate speech on that platform – which doesn't mean there wouldn't be any of that, but at least it's not pushed to my feed constantly.
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
