Is there someone you follow on here and you enjoy their posts but you don't want to see their boosts?
Do you wish you could hide their boosts but still see their posts?
You can do this on Mastodon:
1. Log in through the website
2. Go to the profile of the person whose boosts you want to mute
3. Click "..."
4. Select "Hide boosts from..."
If you want to see their boosts again, just do the same thing but select "Show boosts from..."
"Boosts" are the Mastodon equivalent of retweets.
So, if someone shares another person's post on their own account, that's called a boost.
@feditips can I also block toots that contain specific words or domains in links? Kind of tired of my feed being filled with reposts from the bird site.
Yes you can, there's a content filter that works by words or phrases.
On the website, go to Preferences > Filters > Add New Filter
@feditips nope. People post what they post. If I follow someone, I’ll see what they post. If I don’t, I won’t.
