Hello, Lains. I'm sure you've all heard of Mastodon, the free, open-source, decentralized, and rapidly-growing social network. If you haven't, here's a quick rundown:
>Mastodon is a free, open-source social network. A decentralized alternative to commercial platforms, it avoids the risks of a single company monopolizing your communication. Pick a server that you trust — whichever you choose, you can interact with everyone else. Anyone can run their own Mastodon instance and participate in the social network seamlessly.What sets Mastodon apart:
Timelines are chronological
500 characters per post
GIFV sets and short videos
Granular, per-post privacy settings
Rich block and muting tools
Ethical design: no ads, no tracking
Open API for apps and services
Please feel free to share your Mastodon info in this thread, to find other like-minded lainons to connect with. And if you have any questions about Mastodon, this is the thread.
Trying to figure out which instance is right for you? Here's a handy tool to pick one out: https://instances.mastodon.xyz
Personally, I use cybre.space, and would recommend it to most lainons looking to give Mastodon a try as it's pretty comfy and it has a unique cyberpunk/glitch art theme.
