A Beginner's guide to Mastodon
#india The "local" timeline is a stream of everybody tweeting from the same instance, for example mastadon.social is an instance.
The "federated" timeline is everything on the local timeline, plus everybody who is followed by someone on your instance.
Each instance has its own administrator and its own code of conduct, so make sure you read up before you toot.
#india You can find about the code of conduct of this instance "mastodon.social" on here - https://mastodon.social/about/more which says "The following guidelines are not a legal document, and final interpretation is up to the administration of mastodon.social; they are here to provide you with an insight into our content moderation policies"
You can adjust the privacy of each toot,
- public, which means it will appear on the local and federated timelines;
- followers-only, which means only your followers will see it;
- unlisted, which is like followers-only, but it will also appear on your profile page. Unlisted makes sense if you’re not trying to keep the toot secret, but just don’t want it clogging up timelines or search results.
- direct, post only to the mentioned users
