    they charge money to see posts that were posted by premium members.. they have none of the features that Facebook has.. literally the only thing it has at this point in time, is a main feed wall to share posts, that's it.

    Mastodon is decentralized and open to all kinds of people. It is closer to Twitter than it is to Facebook. It doesn't seem to attract the alt right like other Facebook alternatives do. I love the interface. It is very well structured and even though you join up for only one instance, you can interact with the whole world!

    Not a replacement for Facebook. Gab is a Twitter clone. I need something Facebook-ish. Twitter is a bad and confusing format for me personally. Gab being a Twitter clone doesn't fit as a FB alternative.

    It's similar to the old Facebook, which means it's simpler and without advertisements. Unfortunately, not very popular in Western Europe.

    VK might be a tad bit more private than Facebook, but the biggest benefit is being able to download files and see profiles/posts without an account.

    Twitter is an online social networking service that enables users to send and read short 280-character messages called "tweets".

    Twitter vs Facebook opinions
    This alternative is disputed. Twitter is still a legitimate alternative to Facebook, but it might have issues that some users think are important.

    Because it doesn't collect data about my place of birth, school, and besides, I can enter a nickname and it's OK too. I am also happy about the Twitter Lite version on google store

    Twitter, like Facebook is a censorship platform that will ban your account for minor offenses. They cover the truth and allow lies and misinformation.
