@sonniesedge I might just keep thins one around though to follow random things.

Okay, I think I'm going to use @sonniesedge in preference to this one. If you're following me on here, please join!

PSA: if you see a remote toot and think "wow that is an amazing toot, why does it have 0 favs/boosts/replies"? It probably doesn't. It's just that nobody from this instance follows someone who fav'ed/boosted/replied to it.

One thing I found useful is to just eagerly follow people you see in the Federated timeline saying stuff you like. You can always unfollow/block later.

The Masto experience gets fleshed out the more you use an instance. Keep in mind toot.cafe is 4 days old. 😄

straight people: you /never/ see many queers hanging out with each other, that's not realistic

queers: okay but what if 40000 of us make our own gay leftist social network and also call everything toots

The biggest issue I have right now with the Mastodon:
- How to choose an instance. I've just gone for the default one, but is that wise? How does that impact things?
- Getting used to the interface. The whole concept of the public and federated timelines needs some getting used to.
- Posting publicly or just to followers (ala Twitter). I have no idea of the protocol on that (bugger it, just posting this one publicly)
