Do you like Mastodon, but wish there was a privacy option to only post on your home instance without federating?
There's a fork of Mastodon for that called Hometown:
You can still post normal posts that federate, but Hometown also lets you post non-federating posts if you prefer.
It also has other differences such as rendering full articles from Write Freely (and other federated blogging services).

Does Zot have onboarding for non-tech people?
I think you're right, Glitch is mentioned in the link:
"I don't intend to stray very far from mainline Mastodon with this fork. If you want something that provides a ton of new features and widgets and stuff, the Mastodon Glitch Edition fork is a wondrous kitchen sink of major and minor tweaks."
mastodon.at is a microblogging site that federates with most instances on the Fediverse.
