Mike's one piece of advice for new Mastodon users - dive into that Federated column and follow ANYONE and EVERYONE who looks like they've posted anything at all interesting to you. Just hammer the button. There's no penalty for mistakes. Go wild.

Later, when your Home timeline is buzzing, go in and unfollow people you decide you're not enjoying so much now.

Then do that again a few times. Then some more. Forever.

@mike a good advice but unfortunately Mastodon (web) does not show number of new toots in the tab name.


@jeroenpraat @mike yes but it means I have to activate mastodon tab to see it. I want to see this at the title of tab. Also, this would allow me to read new toots when they arrive, not hour later when there are tons of them.
