BookWyrm is a Fediverse alternative to GoodReads.
They've just opened their onboarding site at:
("Onboarding" is when you make it as easy as possible for people to join something.)
BookWyrm and its instances are currently still in beta testing, but you can join now if you want to try it out. Instances marked as "closed" mean you can join but you have to request an invitation.
Onboarding is the process of making it as easy as possible to join something.
So, for example, if you have a clearly written website aimed at beginners that explains how a social network works, where you can sign up etc, that's onboarding.
It just means helping people to get on board a platform or app!
@matthew @feditips The only thing I’m reading rn is the book of Isaiah 😃 But once my summer class ends I plan on reading Intellectual Schizophrenia by Rousas J. Rushdoony and The Human Future Revisited by Harrison Brown, they should be relatively quick reads and I got them basically for free from my college (they were having a fire sale of old books)
@feditips Does anyone know if we can see messages originally posted on a bookwyrm instance on a mastodon instance yet?
I tried to find a random user from bookwyrm.social/ from the mastodon instance that I am, but could get it.
Any idea why that could be?
mouse profile was https://floss.social/web/@firstname.lastname@example.org
but it doesn't show up.
