@wakest "Q: What makes Mastodon so addictive?"
"A: If you find yourself addicted to Mastodon, please file a bug report so we can add features to counteract this."

@gaditb @wakest @trwnh it’s neither of these things really. I can’t believe someone thought to pose the question like that.

Oh right, “Social Media Manager”. Hmm.

I like the conversations, so keep coming back 🤔

@gaditb @wakest In all seriousness, I wish Mastodon had an option to disable infinite scroll. Maybe I should try to implement it.

@wakest social media analysts will never figure out why people love the taste of federated toast crunch

@wakest I'm going to continue to tell them how boring it is in order to buy us a few more months time

@wakest kind of agree here too. though i wonder whether it's a lasting "feature"

@wakest I would say that if Mastodon (or the fediverse) keeps growing and engage more people, it's just a matter of time before marketers see it as a potential platform.

@wakest
'pinterest marketer'? I've got two words for people like that, and the second one is 'off'

@wakest
lets hope Mastodon does not use the same mind manipulation design tricks big tech uses.

I really like its decentral nature. it means it cannot be targetted by the deep state, as Gab has now figured out.

#ImageDescription for lastboost: The image shows a quote of Elba Niño, a "Pinterest Marketer", who writes she did a poll and 90% of asked social media managers (!) didn't know Mastodon. She then also details that she couldn't get into Mastodon, because her instance was not that active.
