A browse through the Google graveyard makes me a little weary of using tools they bring out. I was a big user of Google Hangouts and Google Air for instance. Killed by Google I’ve been using Google Tasks and Google Keep a lot lately, but don’t want to get too attached. https://killedbygoogle.com/
Some answers I've come up with:
1) Not many people
Yep. But the platform is gaining traction. Just look at the kind of conversations I have been having here. People are crazy responsive.
(Here I show them the same post I've done on Birdsite, Facesite and Mastodon.)
The quality of responses here are wayyyy better too. Not some "jali na teri" memes. People will come! You come first!
2) Can't find people here even if they're here
Sure you can. But then, think of it this way, go to #India #Introduction and just follow a new lot of people. You can follow the regular folks on Birdsite only, but here you get to follow a whole new crop of interesting folks.
(Here I tell them to go to "Follows" on my profile)
Hopefully this will help. I'm following a lot of Indians here. Cheggit.

Hi all, a lot of you have been dealing with questions about moving here to Mastodon from Birdsite.
I thought I'll offer up my reasons for migrating here and tell you why I feel pretty good about it. Maybe it'll work, maybe it won't, but it's worth giving it a shot.
Do read and share with people who want to move here!
hi new users!! i'm not sure how to reach a large amount of you other than having this post on the local timeline.
i'm a moderator here!
when reporting someone, doing it once is fine. real humans are handling your reports, and reporting someone multiple times adds to the workload!
also, when you do report someone, please add an explanation as to why you're reporting them. you can also add specific toots that you believe break our CoC, which you can find here: http://mastodon.social/about/more
I'm also going to try and NOT repeat my Birdsite content and post it here.
Will have some Mastodon exclusive content which will (hopefully) encourage more people to follow me here from birdsite.
Going to try and actively help with the migration by consistently asking people to follow me here.
Let's try this out, shall we?
Youguys! Frend @Manisha_ is now on Mastodon!
She's a vigilant newswatcher who does Republic instead of drugs! Do follow. You shall not regret.
Folks from India, I sent you two fuckin cyclones to distract you from #ayodhya What more did you expect me to do?
