I've been asking people around me what is holding them from using Mastodon (even after some of them joined), and I got 4 reasons:
1) Not many people here2) Can't find people here even if they're here3) It looks very complicated, especially the instances thing4) Doesn't seem too different from Birdsite so why bother
For people to adopt this platform, these four points need to be addressed. And that too in ultra-simple non-nerdy language.
@Memeghnad It is definitely less toxic than bird site for sure. But it needs more posts of breaking news ..Would encourage each one of us to post. I know it is not as easy as bird site, but let us get it rolling!
