Was feeling a bit like some TED talk speaker as I wrote this article, hence the cover image. Deesco made it.

Welcome back! In the previous blog post, I announced our plans to expand the Satania Dropout community by creating a Mastodon instance to complement the Discord server.

For most of you, this will be your first time using an independent social network, as we are the ones running the instance by ourselves, no companies are involved.

In this blog post, I want to share my predictions about the future of online communities, and explain why I think independent social platforms are the future, to justify my wish of making of Satania Dropout an early actor in this movement.

This post will talk about all indie social networks broadly. Not about Mastodon or the Fediverse specifically.
