decentralised social media is a really amazing idea that will live or die on the successful communication of the concepts

unfortunately "instances" and "federation" are not even a tiny bit self-descriptive and that's a real shame

here's a concept I just pulled out of my ass -
Instances > Planet
Federation > Galaxy

I'm a member of the mastodon planet and can see the planet timeline. to see all other planets at once, i view the galaxy timeline

don't even need to explain that really

@malki mastodon.social defffffinitely bans hate speech as well.

the main reasons to choose an instance are a) you trust the admins and b) you like the feel of the community/local timeline. mastodon.social doesn't *really* have much of a community to speak of, and is really large so it's hard to find new people, but it makes up for it by being the flagship instance and the most populated. that's about it!

Still trying to figure out the relevance of being in a certain instance vs. another. If I understand right, mastodon.social is "nothing specific, most people are here" and then mastodon.xyz is the one that's "nothing specific except we ban hate speech" ?

thanks pals for reminding me that this site exists
