Last week, Mastodon adopted a beginner-friendly default interface 👍

So, maybe this would be a good time to spread the word about Mastodon to a wider audience?

If you're on Facebook/Twitter, you could do a little post about Masto with a link to joinmastodon.org ? And a link to a good instance running 2.9 or above?

(Also, I think some people were doing Mastodon posters?)

If people hear about Mastodon from many different sources, they are more likely to try it.

@switchingsocial Yes! If you know people who do obstacle course running, feel free to forward them to OCR.social! :D We created a single column layout with some custom CSS, but this is much easier :)

@switchingsocial please for the love of god, don't bring any more folks from twitter until we've trained the ones we already got, please don't flood us.

@switchingsocial also finally a good way to browse the TL on my vertical monitor, there were too many columns.

@switchingsocial It's pretty exciting to see so many #FreeSoftware projects with such nice design and so usable. I think we've reached a point where many of these projects' challenge to adoption is not feature parity, but instead promotion, onboarding and support for accountable hosting - which is a GREAT place to be.

@clayton @switchingsocial Bad onboarding flow and bad UX in general are still a massive hurdle that prevent people from joining. And unfortunately, social networks need critical mass of people.

Mine:

Getting bit tired of ads in your stream? The fact that they collect all your info bothers you but *shrug* what to do? Tired of Trump posts and wish there was a better filter?

I'm mastodon.technology. What are you? #mastodon

@switchingsocial Oh this is such a relief. Having so much on screen before was overwhelming and claustrophobic for me. This is a nice option to have!
