comparison to birdsite 

I decided to block mastodon.cloud from my view of the Fediverse. I can’t abide the mob mentality that is prevalent on the birdsite coming to Mastodon.

This seems to be a good balance of being able to keep up with what I’m interested in without feeling overwhelmed.

I check my home feed on mastodon.social to get an easy overview of what’s happening with everyone I follow and post general stuff there too. I’ll engage on other instances based on leads I find in my main home feed or just by hanging out in the local feed of other instances.

So, I think I’ve figured out how I can get the most out of Mastodon. Mastodon.social is my main instance. I follow all accounts I want to follow on any instance from this account. I have accounts on other instances for specific topics I’m interested in.

Just as a heads-up, don’t use PMs/DMs on Mastodon, and if you have to never share any private information.

Admins of sending and receiving instances can read those, as there is no end-to-end encryption. Even if you trust the admins, instance ownership could change or hackers or government could get in.

Use different tools designed specifically for this.

Fun fact: while you may only have heard of Mastodon recently, it's been around for a while! @Gargron registered the domain 'mastodon.social' in March 2016, and hundreds of people have contributed to its development since then.

Let's take a moment to say thank you to the thousands of people who have contributed to Mastodon's development and community over the last two and a half years! We wouldn't be where we are without you!

@Ronnie Thanks for the follow and following me across instances. ;). I think I’ve found my home base finally.

time, I guess. I was on Mastodon a while back, but didn’t do much. That “other place” has pissed me off so much, I figured it was time to give Mastodon another shot.

I’m a addict with too many interests. I’m an fan, lover, , and love to .
