I added link to my Mastodon profile on my website -- :feet: seems like the appropriate icon

About risk profile:
- Mastodon is like email because you can't delete federated toots
- Mastodon is like twitter in that Google's search bots index it, unless your admins robot.txt it away
- Mastodon is like being a teenager because the people that own your instance can see all your private stuff
Have a talk with your admin about their policies.
By default, assume everyone will be able to read your toots forever.
This doesn’t feel like the indie web’s last chance, but it’s easily the best chance in a while. We let Facebook eat our relationships, we let Twitter create a new but terrible medium, and then we let Medium eat blogging. I don’t know that Mastodon will be the first new platform in a while that nobody owns, but god, I hope so. Having our lives depend on 7 different domain names is just lying back and inviting net neutrality to get eaten.
