@Cheri Great write up on Mastodon. When I first created my account (2 years ago?) I couldn’t find much of interest. But when I took another look about a month ago I found new folks to follow and a relatively healthy population. I still find it a bit hard to find new people to follow but at least it is easy to avoid the toxicity.

@ronguest Yeah, discovery is super slow.

@Cheri I had no idea Mastodon had autodelete! I was looking for this as a third-party service! Glad I read your post today. :D

I prefer to have my Toots short lived instead of there for life. :)

@pcora @cheri nifty built-in feature - had mine set to auto delete after a month or was it three months. :)

@pcora @rom I have mine set to a month. Most conversations have ended well before that , but I like a bit of wiggle room.

@Cheri Where is a good place to start with Mastadon? Where to create an account? I created an account a few years back, but deleted it (or discarded the login details) as I wasn’t sure where to go or what to look for. Any pointers would be appreciated. 🙏🏻

@crossingthethreshold Start by finding an instance that appeals to you. You can look at their pages to see who’s there and what they’re talking about. You can follow people on any instance, it’s just that discovery is easier within your home instance. Start Here.

@crossingthethreshold I’m on writing.exchange, and I meet lots of nice folks from mastodon.social, mastodon.online, mastodon.nz, photog.social, weirder.earth, mstdn.social, mastodon.technology, and octadon.social - as a start. 😀
