I mostly stick to the fediverse/Mastodon. For those who are not aware this is a decentralized social network service where anybody can run their own server (or "instance") that connects to the wider fediverse. Each instance has their own moderation policy that can range from libertine to draconian allowing people to self-sort according to their own preferences in moderation. Most of these instances are funded by donations instead of advertiser money so you avoid a lot of the anti-features in mainstream social network services which exist to benefit advertisers instead of users.

There are a couple downsides but the most obvious one is small audience. On the other hand, it feels kind of niche and subcultural which has its own value in my opinion.
