I don't think we'll see a federated Clubhouse or TikTok anytime soon.

The correlation between ease of content creation and the success of federated projects is clear, low-effort mediums like text or photos are much easier to participate in than others.

And even then, you can look at the proliferation of TikTok videos on Instagram Reels as another issue.

You can have everything right, but first-mover advantage isn't something you can always buy.


I have to say though, I'm really impressed that Mastodon didn't adopt Fleets/Stories.

They could have, but clearly saw something that even Twitter didn't. I'm not quite sure what that was, but I think all mastodon users owe Gargron a thank you for sticking to his vision and not just adopting the latest "hip" feature!
