Can't wait for the new arrivals to discover they can use their fedi account to follow video channels on @peertube instances, photo stories on @pixelfed instances, events on @mobilizon , musicians on @funkwhale , and @owncast streams.

Curious how we can do better marketing of these things? I'm planning on DJ streaming in the near future, and while I'd love to do it through open culture experiences like OwnCast, I've yet to see good examples of people promoting themselves on here, so I've been gun shy.

@roadriverrail I think why you're not seeing as much blatant marketing is not every stream is looking to gain as many viewers as possible. Some stay completely private and don't want the public to know about it at all, and many are casually just hobby-streaming. But you should totally market your stream if you want viewers, there's no wrong way to do so. Making sure you're on the Owncast directory, telling your existing communities, and sharing your stream on the Fediverse are all good starts.

@gabek By "market these things", I think I meant more like "raise awareness for these Masto integration points". For example, I didn't know any of the things posted above until today, even though I've made posts on Fedi asking about similar things. Likewise, while I've got some nice acquaintances on here, I don't really have a community here to share with, and I've been running an instance for years. This makes me wonder if these are challenges of the system or if there's something I'm missing.

@gabek Also, just as a follow-up point-- I've actually never seen anyone mention their streaming efforts on here. Like, not once in over 3 years. So, if I'm missing a wing of the fedi due to being out of view of it, I want to find it.
