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 ? 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! :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.



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 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!
