@jsh If you paste a URL in the search bar and it can be resolved, the profile/post/etc will show up in the Mastodon app. For profiles, you need to know their account handle (@ user @ domain . tld), or their direct URL (if their server is running Mastodon, it'll be https:// domain . tld / @ user)
@jsh If you search for their username in the search box, it should show that name across all instances.
Follow friends and discover new ones. Publish anything you want: links, pictures, text, video. This server is run by the main developers of the Mastodon project. Everyone is welcome as long as you follow our code of conduct!
