Mastodon is a free, -source social network server based on where users can follow friends and discover new ones. On Mastodon, users can publish anything they want: links, pictures, text, video.

All servers are interoperable as a federated network (users on one server can seamlessly communicate with users from another one, including non-Mastodon software that implements ActivityPub)!

What is Mastodon?

Mastodon is Twitter-style social networking combined with email-style instanced servers. It's named after the metal band, but themed after the extinct megafauna.

How is it like Twitter?

You post relatively-short status updates, and you can see a streaming list of your friends' status updates. You can keep notifications (replies, boosts, favorites, and DMs) in a separate column.

Welcome to all new users! Wonderful to have you on board!

✅ Before you begin edit your profile, create a bio and upload a cool avatar!

✅ Then it's time for your first toot! Use the hashtag to introduce yourself.

✅ Now follow some users, some will probably follow you back when they like your introduction and bio.

You find users on the local and (especially) the federated timeline.

📖 And don't forget to read our code of conduct over at mstdn.social/about/more

Happy tooti'n!

If you see a post that breaks the rules on your instance (such as spam, hate speech, doxxing etc), you can report it by clicking "..." below the message. This message goes to your own instance admin, who can block the account.

Optionally, you can also anonymously report it to the instance of the account that posted it. Just click on the toggle switch to do this.

This means the rule breaker's own instance admin can potentially close the account completely.

If you're on Mastodon, you can contact the admin who runs your instance by clicking on "About this server" in the bottom left corner.

The section marked "Administered by" should include contact details for your instance admin.

Bear in mind, because Mastodon is federated, the admin only has control over their own instance. What happens on other instances is beyond their control, though they can block connections with specific instances if necessary.
