Question for others w/multiple fediverse accounts 

Other than specific roles (like a dedicated admin account), how do you balance them? Heck, how do you label them?

I've got 4 masto accounts: 1 for "good" photos, 1 for book discussion. I keep changing my mind abt how to handle the other 2, what to post where, who to follow on which account & so on.

There's value in separating social contexts, but there's a practical limit too.

How many accounts do you balance? How do you keep track of them?

@kelsonv I have:
- My "main" account, this one
- My account in the main Brazilian instance (@romariorios), where the local timeline is actually usable
- My first account (@romariorios), which I keep for historical reasons

Even though this is my main account, I keep using my Brazilian account more and more because interactions with strangers there tend to be more fruitful than over here

Question for others w/multiple fediverse accounts 

@romariorios Yeah, local timelines being usable make a big difference!

I see you also used the same username across each instance. I did that with the first few I made & keep confusing myself. Do you find that the different avatars help?

Question for others w/multiple fediverse accounts 

@kelsonv I don't see how using the same username would be too big of a problem, since you only really see on mentions -- and I don't mention myself too often

@romariorios Yeah, good point.

@kelsonv So, yeah. Different avatars _and_ different display names do definitely help
