Mastodon is a free, #open-source social network server based on #ActivityPub where users can follow friends and discover new ones. On Mastodon, users can publish anything they want: links, pictures, text, video.
All #Mastodon 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)!
We do not serve ads, track or sell your data. Every little bits helps a lot ❤️
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 #introduction 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.
