Greetings #introductions! CygnusX11 here looking for an alternative to Facebook. I was tired of the tracking, bullying and downright selfishness of Facebook. It was turning me into an angry person generally. All I want is to enjoy free thinking and my Linux, gaming, music, running and traveling hobbies without all the baggage from the power hungry corporate social networks. I chose this instance because it seems like a good fit for me. I'm looking forward to some fun discussions, 😀.
If you've never used Mastodon before.... Home tab is where only stuff you follow goes. Local tab is for all of Fosstodon. And Federated is the whole federation of instances..... so literally anything on Mastodon's main fediverse can be on there.
Spend most your time on Local to meet people and Home to curate stuff.
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
