Hi @ColinTheMathmo
Firstly, I'm no great techie!

I use #Matrix with Fractal on the laptop and FluffyChat on the phone. I'm a fan of it. I've managed to persuade a group of friends to join. None of them had any problems doing so. And none of them are techie either.

Practical advice:
1) Remember that often, we don't see the whole picture, and thus, conclusions might be biased.

2) Learning from 'successful' people might not be the best idea. Learn from everyone :)

#Pleroma has chats (though I don't think those use #ActivityPub) and now #Matrix is experimenting with microblogging. Interesting how these two federated platforms are converging. I hope we don't end up with two isolated federated platforms
