Would it even be worthwhile for me to get mastodon? I feel I need less social media in my life, not more. :v

If you like. I see it as a replacement for Twitter, personally.

(Also, your layout doesn't look quite right to me. o.o)

excuse me, but may I ask what web browser do you use? because I just tested it in Firefox, Chromium and IE11 and I didn't get it to display the blue borders

(unless somehow your internet failed to load the layout's images, that could be an issue)

It's not very useful if you don't know some people there already and can't convince others to move, because it's just a somewhat quieter place. Even I don't really use it as much as I probably should (compared to Twitter, at least); it's just... different.

For a while I was like "I admire Mastodon more than I like it, it's the Soccer-in-America of social networks"but now I've found some great people there and it's my main social media presence these days, at Mastodon.social/@cryptovexillologist

I didn't have a plan for what I'd do with it when I made it, but I accidentally found a new interest and a bunch of people to make jokes at.

I'm trying to make an account but the site keeps freezing for some reason...

Looks like a pretty awesome site though, I'll definitely be signing up once my computer stops being shit.

It's gonna be hard to convince myself to use it as much as Twitter when most of my friends are on Twitter already and convincing them to even try Mastodon's gonna be impossible...

I'm back on Mastodon again, I guess.

Dunno if I'll be super active on it, but I'll have an account around, at least...

There’s another social media like this too. It’s called Diaspora which has the more Facebook atmosphere to it I believe.

So Mastodon is kind of blowing up again because there's a move to deactivate Twitter accounts in response to their shitty handling of Nazis and APIs and whatnot. It's kind of interesting. I don't think many will stick around.

Oddly, I signed up about a week before any of that happened on a whim. I think the universe is trying to tell me "get away from and don't go back to Twitter you dimwit." (Or, of course, it's purely coincidence. )

Personally I've never felt very engaged with Twitter. I like the micro-blogging structure, it meshes well with me. But Twitter is... er... I'd like to put it into nice words, but honestly it's just shitty. It feels like it was made with heart originally and then at some point the corporate machine sucked all that away and left us with a husk of a platform that's been overtaken by however many tech buzzwords you can think of (machine learning, algorithms, etc.)

Having something in-between longhand conversation and chatting is delightful. Extending that with a platform that gives power to the people is ingenious and more importantly it works. Etiquette can always be taught. But it only matters when the environment encourages it.

E: Oh, right, it's @marrub@sleeping.town (backup is @marrub@mastodon.technology)

With all that's been going on with Twitter I've been considering it more lately, but I hardly tweet as is.

I'm still alive and kicking on .social, for some reason, even though it basically collapses every time Jack Dorsey says/does something stupid again. Ah well.

The influx of new users/followers is pretty nice though, even though it's led to another wave of discourse about decentralization/federation/etc. and a bunch of bad takes about "will this Twitter clone actually last????" (even though it's been basically thriving for two years or so now?)

I really should start following people back again. I think I've pretty much just been getting followed by cool people and then completely forgetting to do likewise.
