Hello new #Mastodon folks! 🐘
Have you heard of the #Fediverse? 🗺️
It's a set of community projects that use the #ActivityPub standard to talk to each other.
Mastodon is the most well developed, but there are many works in progress too:
YouTube -> PeerTube 🎞️
...and many others.
Basically, yes, you will be able to follow people from one platform on another, and comment/like their posts.
The range of interactions depends on the platform, for example PixelFed will let you follow Mastodon accounts but will only display posts that have images attached. You'll also be able to follow PF accounts on Mastodon.
GT is not federating yet, it's still being worked on. The list is works in progress rather than finished projects.
If you want to try out the cross-platform federation, you can follow PeerTube users from Mastodon, e.g. @blender
PixelFed is also just about to become federated, you can already find some PF users listed on Mastodon.

@funkwhale @switchingsocial @pixelfed @GetTogetherComm this is really great news to hear! I will patiently wait and keep testing and promoting - my next steps include finish uploading everything from my netlabel backcatalogue and add much more from other netlabels and start making public playlists of netaudio 😃
PixelFed sounds REALLY interesting !!!
mastodon.at is a microblogging site that federates with most instances on the Fediverse.
