Really, asking "what should replace Facebook" is putting things the wrong way around.
A more interesting way to ask the question is, "what did Facebook replace."
People used to build their own websites. People used to have blogs. People used USENET which was truly distributed and un-censorable.
Facebook and Google took the open internet and open standards and monetized and made everything crappy. Enough of that. Nothing should replace Facebook, it's done, stick a fork in it.
The problem with the NC is that it's counter-productive and does not achieve what artists want it to achieve.
It does nothing to stop people who do not care about licensing from "stealing" your work.
OTOH it stops people who feel strongly about licensing from using your work, making derivatives, making it popular.
It's terribly vague -- what does it even mean? If I use this CC By-NC picture in a presentation funded by a grant, is that "commercial"?
CC By-SA is way better.

...I'm not sure if people would pay anything for the garbage fires that FB and birdsite have become, and suddenly pivoting to subscription model might look like bait-and-switch...HOWEVER...
It does show that it is feasible for federated social media to scale to billions of users, without productising users, costing around $1/month. Give that some thought if you're considering donating to an instance admin but think you cannot afford to make a meaningful contribution.

Sure not everyone is a fan of #Lunduke here but he is really on point here with his modest proposal of sorts:
In one video slide he shows how many open positions there are at #facebook. The number of jobs in security relative to sales and analytics is telling as to where priorities are.
I might come to a slightly different conclusion than Lunduke though...
Ok time to run for a while.
I have yet to experience this so-called "runners high" and I think it's fake. Also, it probably doesn't compare to better highs, like amphetamines, or Psychadelics, or a cold beer on a hot day, or masturbation, or a perfect burger, or love. Fuck running.
Silicon Valley is dominated by guys like Zuckerburg who lack this historical perspective and it is sad and a bit dangerous. The only world they know is post-9/11 where valuing privacy is often viewed with suspicion and are taught by those in power that surveillance keeps us safe and secure.
Add to that the only Internet they've ever known is one being monetized almost completely by targeted advertising?
Seems society has failed a whole generation.
Insight from #Facebook hearings...
Zuckerburg was asked if he knew about Poindexter's Total Information Awareness initiative and HE SAID NO. what??
But yeah he was barely out of high school so probably wasn't on his radar. He is so young he really only came of age after the era of BBSes, the invention of WWW and after Eternal September...and it looks like he showed no interest in learning that history and nobody was interested in teaching him either...
