I am happy that is the case currently. But there is a fear deep within, there always comes a time when network effect kicks in. When users who do not really have much attachment to a specific platform tend to settle down with the platforms where most of the acquaintances are. And then it is a snowball effect from there.
There has rarely been a place for many social networks to co-exists1. Hopefully, this time it is different. I doubt, but strongly wish that’s the case.
Twitter is not a social network. It was only Facebook for so long.↩
