Following up from discussion with @LydiaConwell ; I'm seeing a lot of journalists conflate fedi with mastodon.social-- essentially, a single website with a single point of failure-- and missing the point of distribution.
Is there a good article, infographic, or blog post debunking this, accessible to people without any technical background? (So nothing like "ActivityPub is a protocol", since most people don't know what communications protocols are.)
@MatejLach @cidney Actually choosing an instance is quite overwhelming and because many of them are defensive when they set out their rules (to put trolls off) they come across a little bit authoritarian and stifling. But once you're here it's easy enough.
It's much more social and much more diverse than other site, I feel.
