Since January 2019 I'm on Mastodon and since early 2020 I'm using Matrix and IndieWeb standards. And I am really happy to see that decentralised protocols are finally gaining some traction on many fronts. Meta has been rumoured to play with ActivityPub in with their Project 92. The EU through the Digital Markets Act (DMA) will force important online players to adapt some degree of interoperability by March 2024. This might finally (and I hope slowly) start the new era of decentralisation of social networks.

However, this requires a mental shift in how we understand and practice our online interactions. There is a nice article about this at the Atlantic: Ben Franklin Would Have Loved Bluesky, which draws an analogy with how it was also initially difficult for Americans to get used to their new constitution, back in the 17th century.
