Is Scuttlebutt any different to the early version of Facebook?

It seems to be a distributed version. I've applied to join one "room", which is for people who are interested in technical stuff. I've not heard back yet. Until I get to use it properly, I won't be able to say what it's really like.

I've given up on it. It's confusing and I've not got past setting up my profile. I don't see it replacing FaceBook.

That doesn't seem like a substitute for Facebook or Twitter from what I've seen. I've tried Minds and Ello and they didn't hit the mark either.
