Hi there. I'm brand new to the world of Mastodon. Just trying to figure out how it works.

@bluesfreak72 Welcome! I’ve been in it for two days and so far, so good.

The biggest problem I’m struggling with is figuring out who to follow.

Follow

@caleb
Always a problem on a new social network. I'd recommend checking the Trunk

communitywiki.org/trunk

@bluesfreak72

@mike Thanks. I’ve run across that before but it looked like a random wall of names. I’ll take a closer look.

I think what I’d like to do is follow multiple servers since they seem to be topical. Essentially it’d be great to subscribe to hash tags or topics across all servers.

@caleb
If you're on android, is a great app that lets you follow servers, hashtags, and the like.

@nebunez
I had heard there was an app that allowed that. Thanks for sharing its name!
Right now I’m doing the whole “tab per server I find interesting” approach.
