    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!

    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.

    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

    Facebook allows for long-form posts that can span paragraphs, while Twitter is only capable of recording fragments of thought.

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

    Matches Facebook technologically as a platform, but the loudest voices in the community are conspiracy theories, antiscience, and MAGA types -- the platform actually promotes these people as "You should follow". Example: When you search "news", you only get "alternative news", not y'know NEWS. The platform need to attract and promote truthful content to counteract all the "alternative facts".
