Federated social media will out live giants like facebook, twitter. They might have a small user base but that means nothing, they are not run for a profit and a single node going down has little impact on the hole of the network.

"The scientists think the tattoo ink was made using soot, and the fact that it is carbon-based allowed the infrared camera to pick it up very strongly.

Research published earlier this year in Endocrine Abstracts showed that polyphenols in chocolate improved insulin sensitivity even in people who did not have diabetes."
