I decided to create a quick start guide for people to reference that's visually focused. I didn't find any guides that I particularly liked for onboarding a complete beginner, so I made my own. Feel free to share this as you please!
I finally decided to set up a mastodon server to host social media for me and my friends! This is an invitation to folks to join. I've sent it to people directly as a way to ask if they're interested, but if you happen to stumble across this on accident feel free to read it over. Register if it makes you interested!
A friend on my feed recently shared a story about a day in the life of a Facebook moderator, which unsurprisingly isn't a great time. After reading it they were asking themself if they could genuinely leave Facebook. That inspired me to ask the question on my feed "What keeps you on Facebook?", hoping that I could write about my experience leaving and what I did to replace the things that kept me there. Enjoy!
