@taylorsmith Yes, the community piece is hard to replicate. I first got on Facebook to stay in touch with my Rock ‘n’ Roll Camp For Girls pals. And I enjoyed being in an Orphan Black fan group and a guinea pig owners group. But it was a lot of mental overhead, as those groups were large.
I am in a Slack with my podcaster friends from The Incomparable. That is the perfect small private group. In tandem with Micro.blog, I feel I’ve got a good balance of socializing, entertainment, education, information and support.
