How about joining Diaspora,   the community would really like more big
players like Mozilla on board so that you can engage  in the community
and that also encourags others to come to Diaspora.   - join link for the
joindiaspora pod,   but you can join other  pods or set your own up.

welcome to join

Interestingly since the news about FB / CA  daspora and I think other
alternatives appear to have seen an increase in new members or certainly
people looking for alternatives.
