Hello Everyone !
You have maybe heard about Mastodon during the last few days ? If not you should take a look at this new social network.

What is mastodon ?



Mastodon, a distributed, open-source version of Twitter, is almost identical to the platform it's based on, but with key differences: posts can run 500 characters rather than 140, and users can make individual posts private. Just in the past 48 hours, the network has grown by 73 percent, to 41,703 users

Want more informations about mastodon ? Here some good articles about it :

If you have not registered on mastodon yet, We have launched yesterday an instance. You can register at https://mastodon.top
What do you think ? Will you stop using Twitter ? :rolleyes2:

Looks pretty nice actually. Are you able to interact with users of other instances?

Thanks for the head's up. Wow--I've never heard of this, and it does look pretty cool, Still, I have yet to have digested all that I can do with Twitter yet. I must admit, having access to more characters, which I assume equals more hashtags, is pretty appealing to me.

Never heard of this social media prior to bumping into this thread. As far as I am concerned I am not going o check this out, I am happy with old social media because these are the places where everyone is present. It is not that I am against the new social media, however, it is true that you cannot be present every where. It takes a lot of time to social network on these sites.

Mastodon is not a copy of Facebook at all.
It's similar to Twitter, with less restriction (500 characters per message instead of 150).


The main difference with other social networks is you will never seen any ads on mastodon, and you will not have to worry about your personal data usage.

I'm trying to figure out how to see public facing profiles, if that's even an option. I reckon one has to join an instance first.

Any help on getting started?
