Well, Mastodon looks great. Like some sort of Twitter/Reddit hybrid *and* it's FOSS?!

Hoping to use this to transition away from Big Bad Facebook™️.

Anyone out here had any luck with that? :blobthinkingeyes:

@stuts Welcome! Never had a Facebook account, Mastodon and other members of the Fediverse are more than enough to fullfill my social network needs.

@ericbuijs Thanks! And that's glorious to hear, I've had a Facebook account since I was around 11 so it's been in my life too long at this point.

I think it's great that you're fulfilling social needs with the Fediverse! It gives me hope!

Are there any other servers you'd recommend joining? I'm currently only in this one...

@stuts For Mastodon this instance serves all my needs (since they're all federated) However I'm also on Friendica (squeet.me). Friendica enables me to communicate with users within the Fediverse (not only Mastodon but also Diaspora and Pleroma for instance).

This link gives a good summary of the Fediverse and it's members. It also contains good links for further reading. fediverse.party/en/fediverse/

@ericbuijs "Fediverse", "Pleroma" "Diaspora"... Well I certainly have a lot of new terminology and services to learn about!

Thanks for the link, I'll check it out and hopefully this can become a comfy new home on the internet!
