@moneybirdy Most of us are and if they are not you can just mute / ban / ignore them. So I hope you find a very cozy home around here. Feel free to ask if you have any questions. It's just a little different but better imho.
@luricaun Thank you for your assistance. I really appreciate it. 😀 I feel good here but don't know to get my friends from other fb to connect me here.
@moneybirdy Well yes and no. You can post a "Direct Message" to people mentioned in the toot you are writing.
BUT, the admin of instance you choose (here: fosstodon.org) and the admins of the people you wrote can (theoretically) read even "Direct Messages". So there is no guarantee that it is real "private". It's a question of how much you trust your instance admins.
@luricaun Oh! I see that's how it works. I understand a little bit now, when I hover my mouse in the three dots, I saw the DM function. Thank you for your explanation. x
@moneybirdy Well to get a glimpse idea of how Mastodon works and how to use it I will leave a couple of links here. Also ask if you have more questions. There are a lot of helpful people around. Especially the concept of privacy settings of a toot can be a little confusing at first.
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
