If you want people to find your public posts on Mastodon or the rest of the Fediverse, there's something important you need to know:


For privacy reasons, the only way to search for posts on here is by hashtag. If you don't include tags, no one will see your post in searches.

Hashtags have to be spelt exactly, so #MastoTip and #MastoTips would bring up two separate sets of results. Include multiple tags if you're not sure.

Candidates: Privex, hopefully something else? I'm getting recommended BuyVM but I find it sketchy. Most hosting services renowned for being privacy-aware like Njalla, Orange Website, 1984Hosting or Bahnhof are just way too expensive. Most big, cheap services like OVH, Hertzner, DigitalOcean, Linode and Vultr make me 🤔 a lot. Cockbox is... Cockbox.

Sprachassistenten wie Siri, Alexa und Google sind zentralisierte, proprietäre Wanzen, die den Nutzer belauschen.

Es geht aber auch anders. Mit Snips: Dezentralisiert, quelloffen und lokal.

(Nur die Webseite sollten sie mal dringend von Google und Co. befreien!)

"Gmail keeps a record of your purchase history in plain sight"

Wird aber noch besser:
"Google is also data-mining the inboxes of paying customers—including corporations, nonprofit entities, small businesses, and schools—for transaction data."

Das ist der Grund, weshalb man sowohl Privat als auch Geschäftlich auf Google verzichten sollte. 🧙‍♂️

tips for newcomers

follow, boost and fave all you like! we don't care about follow ratios and faves are private. go hog wild!

boosting your own posts is 100% ok. no shame. the TL is chronological, so there's no algorithm to fight.

please do use CWs. if in doubt, use one just to be safe.

hashtags are your friends and really the only effective way to search for posts. be sure to use them to maximize your reach.

don't be afraid to engage. dumping pictures is fine but stay and chat a bit too!

Did you know that "git checkout -" works much like "cd -" and switches back and forth between two branches?

You're welcome.

Little-known Mastodon features:

Featured hashtags: You can choose hashtags to be displayed on your public profile so that people can browse all your posts under those hashtags

Something broke tonight. Sorry for any inconvenience.

#GitHub is blocking users based on national origin, citing US trade controls law restrictions....

People from #Iran, #Syria, #Crimea, #Cuba, and North Korea woke up one day to lose access to all their public and private repositories. There's reporting that even people *who traveled* to any of those countries in the last 2 years are losing their data...

And #GitHub has not said ONE WORD ABOUT IT.
