5. Explore! Did you know you can follow people on other Mastodon instances? Try the search feature, or browse the federated timeline. Did you know there are mobile apps for every platform? Just search for Mastodon clients, and login with your account here (@[email protected]).
Do you know someone who would make an excellent addition to best head? You can send invitations to get them in the door! Just check your settings menu!
3. Follow some people. You can check the member directory, scan the #introductions or topical hashtags, and browse the posts in the local and federated timelines.
4. Join the conversation, or even better, start one! What are you working on today? What's the best thing you've read watched or heard recently?
Welcome! Make yourself at home. Luxuriate, only briefly, at the tantalizing potential of a blank page. Then get started:
1. Toot an introduction with the #introduction hashtag. Who are you? Where are you? What do you do?
2. Set up your profile. Show us your lovely mug. Add topic hashtags to your bio to be listed in our directory. Add links to your other profiles.
I love discovering, promoting, and attending local startup and STEM events (and hackathons and geek meetups and...). I spent so much time tracking and sorting them, I decided I might as well build a site to share them. Check out HawaiiCal.com... and please help spread the word (and add your own events) if you like it! #hawaii #startups #stem #scitech #events #calendar #thatnewsitesmell https://www.hawaiical.com/events/list/
Anyone really into micro.blog? Many people I follow are really into it, but I'm not sure I understand the draw. #microblog
@Gargron @dansup Fascinating. Thanks. Scrolled back to see the specific @mastodonusercount update. I saw some hubbub on Twitter, I'm gathering it's not gone smoothly for them. Pity. https://bitcoinhackers.org/@mastodonusercount/102383537675433031
Whoa. What happened on July 5 to make the @mastodonusercount register an additional million users in the #mastodon #fediverse? https://bitcoinhackers.org/@mastodonusercount/102396749689401626
@Gargron Any plans to allow more flexibility for moderated instances? I'd love to direct new users to a survey form rather than a single text box to explain their interest in joining. Allowing us to specify custom text or just an "application" URL would be fantastic!
