> With a fresh new start we have the power to enforce some unspoken etiquettes on the site in the hopes of a better platform than Reddit.
> One great feature I see no one talking about is that we can write our own text when posting links, which is extremely useful for communities that mostly link articles. A lot of the political and tech related articles are mostly fluff, filled with jargon and clickbait only to have a one line news at the end of it all.
> We should try to make it a habit to write the main point(s) that the article is making to avoid misinformation and ragebait titles. Ideally, a post without any text backing the article would become a red flag that it's posted by some bot or mass spammer, and would not be floated to the front page.

I’m a bit confused as to what platform I should look to for my exodus from Reddit. First we have Lemmy which is a direct Reddit alternative. Then we have kbin which is ALSO is own Reddit alternative AND portal to Lemmy/Mastodon. Finally we have Mastodon which is the well established Twitter alternative that doesn’t really portal to Lemmy or Kbin.
I’m ok with Mastodon being it’s own thing, but what about Lemmy and Kbin? Kbin seems more secure and flexible but Lemmy is longer running with apps available on iOS and Android.
Which do you think you’ll be gravitating towards?
