The Fediverse is more than just Mastodon!
If you like to share photos you might want to check out @pixelfed, an Instagram-style photo sharing network on the Fediverse.
You can find out more and sign up at:
PixelFed uses the same federation protocol as Mastodon, which means Mastodon users can follow people on PixelFed and vice versa. You can try following a PixelFed account right now such as @Iancylkowski or @JoseMel or @connyduck
If you love books, the best part of the Fediverse is probably @bookwyrm, a GoodReads-style social reading network.
More info and sites to sign up on are at:
Because it uses the same ActivityPub protocol that powers the rest of the Fediverse, you can follow BookWyrm accounts from Mastodon etc.
For example, the lead developer of BookWyrm has an account at @mouse
The best place to watch and share videos on the Fediverse is @peertube
You can find out more including places to sign up at:
Just like the rest of the Fediverse, PeerTube uses ActivityPub protocols, so you can follow and interact with PeerTube from Mastodon etc.
Good instances to explore include:
There's a dedicated free open source PeerTube app called TubeLab available through @fdroidorg and Google Play.
If you would like a more Facebook-style interface on the Fediverse, maybe you should try Friendica:
As it uses the ActivityPub protocol, you can follow and interact with accounts on Mastodon etc from Friendica, and vice versa.
You can also follow RSS feeds as if they were Fediverse accounts, and when an RSS item is published on that feed it will appear in your timeline as if it's a Fediverse post.
You can write very long posts on Friendica, you don't have to worry about character limits.
You can use Friendica accounts through the FediLab app, available on @fdroidorg and Google Play.
You can follow the latest news about Friendica on its official blog at @news
