one of my favorite things about Plume so far is that you can customize the licensing (think of it like a copyright) on individual posts. This actually is great for protecting against the plagiarism that ran rampant on Tumblr. (click to read more about Creative Commons Licenses)
I witnessed the rise and fall of Myspace, I was there in the early days of Facebook (which I may also leave soon), I had a Twitter account way back in the beginning, I've dabbled in Ello (it's like Tumblr and Twitter somehow had a baby that is worse than both of them), and honestly, this Plume thing seems really promising. I know it doesn't look like much yet, and I can't get the tagging system to work (please send help), but this platform actually has "it"...
