Another quick helper for people coming from the #TwitterMigration (slightly overly simplified).

Feeds:

Home = people you specifically follow, no matter what instance they "live" on

Local = the feed for the people across the same instance you're on, whether or not you follow them

Federated = public posts from people "known" to your instance, ie people on the same instance as you OR people followed by people on your instance, like a 2nd degree connection (it is NOT "every user on Mastodon).

Feels great to have a pathway forward for ditching instagram. Looking forward to the iOS App coming out of beta. 😎

My #ADHD understands the #fediverse like moving to a new city.

#1.. choose a neighbourhood to live in (instance / server)
#2.. move into, and set up your new home (profile)
#3.. meet your new neighbours and build your new community
#4.. explore your new city (the fediverse)
#5.. Learn the communities cultural norms and don't be a jerk.

What am I missing?

We have #mastodon to replace #twitter, #pixelfed to replace #instagram, now we really just need a good #facebook replacement in the #fediverse and maybe I can see about getting some of my family members away from those services.

People that post on LinkedIn: You all scare me.
