Joining a new social network in 2021: first, the added weight of coming up with something you're going to share, so you can get something out of this new place. you can read something, sure, but you're swimming in 72 tabs of things to read; how do you know this is going to be worth your time at all?

if the network offers a way to get paid, what do you have to offer that's valuable enough? do you need a different voice here? are you going to just word-vomit something and press “Post”? are you just going to react to content that's already out there? is a “like” the biggest mark you can make in this new space to get off the ground? or can you have a real conversation, maybe with someone you'd really love to talk to? is there something to do besides produce and consume “content”? is there actually anything of value in this new place?
