Q: When is it appropriate to tell a woman what she should wear?
A: You're a fashion consultant and she's paying for your time.
@iamabhinav A social media that doesn't replicate the toxic behaviour that we see on the big commercial ones is possible. 50% of what we need are technical tools (and Mastodon is very good at this), but the other 50% is a community that actively discuss, works and collaborate to mantain their instance a nice place.
That's why I will always suggest the creation of local and community-based instances.
(PS - here you can find a complete introduction to Mastodon with many tips, partially derived from some of the toots you boosted http://rame.altervista.org/mastostart )
Mastodon is not Twitter
BUT THIS ALONE WILL NOT HELP...
...if you are still tangled in a Twitter-mindset!!
Are you still searching for the Trending Topics that will impose to everyone what is the thing about whom you "must" talk today?
Are you searching for "people to follow" instead of "people to interact with"?
Are you still planning time wasting things like hashtag wars instead of doing something real?
Are you searching for emotional and social gratifications by the number of retweets you received?
Are you still judging a post by the number of likes that received?
Are you still writing '"cool lines posts" for obtaining likes insted of writing interesting posts that stimulates discussion and interaction?
If so, pkease pay attention: there is still much Twitter INSIDE YOU.
