@stux I'm confused. Is mstdn.social something different from mastodon.social? A different instance?

@doubleblind Correct! There are thousands of Mastodon instances ❤️ :fediverse:

@stux The concept hurts my brain. LOL I signed up over at mstdn.social just now, but it seems like a huge hassle not being able to interact with it and mastodon.social, from one place, or is that possible? i.e. do I have to start from scratch on mstdn.social, following people and posting?

@doubleblind :blobcatgiggle:​ that's not needed my friend! As i see you are currently on your @mastodon.social account and you can interact with me on mstdn.social :blobcathearts:

That's how Mastodon and the Fediverse works! It's all "connected". Instead of using only the "handle" here you use your "full handle" like @Username/@domain.com (without the /, otherwise i link haha)

@stux, so you're saying I didn't need to sign up on mstdn.social, to be able to interact with people from that instance? The other reason I signed up was to see what the front end interface looked like. It looks slightly different than mastodon.social. I haven't found an interface or app that I really like, yet.

@doubleblind @stux
You can access all other instances from just one instance, excepting instances that your instance has blocked.
