Did you know there are centralized alternatives to the #Fediverse?
They are great!
Instead of being developed by volunteers for the community they are developed for millionaires with the sole purpose of getting them more money and influence over the "users".
They contain ads and algorithms, so you don't have to decide, what you want to see, but you get to see what makes you addicted, so you view more ads, buy more stuff and thereby support the capitalist system that we all love.
Instead of anonymity you get to enter your phone number and other form of identification, which totally helps against hate speech, right?
I could go on with advantages, but I think it's best you check them out for yourselves.
