i love to "engage" on social media https://tenforward.social/about/more
i kind of want to do a little illustrated PSA about mastodon, federation, and privacy to share what i've figured out by asking around and reading docs over the last few weeks. none of it was self-evident. i'd love to see each instance include an FAQ page for new users, explaining the details in a way non-tech people can understand
this is a pretty solid article about the security/privacy caveats with mastodon. (i don't think any of them are that bad as long as you understand them.) https://blog.malwarebytes.com/security-world/2017/04/mastodon-risks/
My review of @Gargron's Mastodon is up on PCMag! It felt weird to assign a number and metrics to a work in progress, but I think the review itself highlights all the best aspects of ol' Masto.
Interestingly, it gets the same score as Twitter did when it launched a decade ago. :thinking:
