There’s a new, bright future for social media, and Pine.blog is just one piece. Open Social Networks like Pine.blog come in all shapes and sizes, and they can all talk to each other. Whether you’re using Pine.blog, Mastodon, WordPress, Micro.blog or something else, you should be able to talk with, share, and follow everyone else in that network. In this way, Pine.blog uses the Web itself as a Social Network.
With Open Social Networks, users are always in control. If you don’t like that a service shows you ads, or charges a fee, or tracks your clicks, you can move to another service that doesn’t and you don’t have to lose your followers, your timelines, or your posts.
