Little-known Mastodon features:

Profile directory: You can opt-in to being listed on your server's public profile directory, and you can use hashtags in your bio to appear under those hashtags

Featured hashtags: You can choose hashtags to be displayed on your public profile so that people can browse all your posts under those hashtags

@Gargron featured tags sound like a great idea! Didn't know about those!

@ldexterldesign @Gargron hi! i'm still new to mastodon but could i ask how you're able to get the social page/instance?

@moonsterm sorry, don't understand the question. If you're self-hosting and missing functionality then ensure you're using latest [r]elease. Regards.


@Gargron people should be opted in by default, otherwise why ARE you on a social network? #CommonSense

@Gargron An explanation of "featured hashtags" should probably be added to its settings page. Perhaps copy-paste the text from this toot?
