Did you know that Mastodon is part of a wider network called the Fediverse?

These (and more) are on the Fediverse too:

PixelFed - an Instagram alternative (pixelfed.org)

PeerTube - a YouTube alternative (joinpeertube.org)

WriteFreely - a blogging platform like Medium (writefreely.org)

Lemmy - a Reddit alternative (join.lemmy.ml)

You can follow Fediverse accounts from Mastodon, because Fediverse platforms talk to each other.
