Okay, I just came up with a great hashtag for the fediverse, regarding #FollowFriday, also known as #FF.

🐻 Bear with me, while I explain why it's so good, and why it will stick.

It's been suggested that we need a #fediverse specific ff-hashtag, but nothing interesting ever came out of it.

Today I saw #FFOS (Follow Friday on Saturday), and I was like, what if, instead of forgetting, we could do it every day, and #FFED was born. Follow-Fediverse, and Follow-Friday Every Day, rolled into one.
For this #followFriday I recommend @catstar for lots of cat pics filling your timeline 😻

I'm gonna keep this simple, because I can't word good... These are people you should consider following (in no particular order).

This list is not complete, so please don't be offended if you're not on it!

Warning: Some of them like cats. Sorry. Most are animal lovers of some sort (hell, Mike is on the list just because of his Macaw)

Hey everyone! As you might know already, suffered a catastrophic hardware failure, taking us down for about 2 weeks and forcing us to move to a completely new instance.

A lot of us (myself included) didn't back up our follows either. So we're very much on square one.

How you can help:

- Contribute to #ff (follow friday) tomorrow. Everyone could do with the follow suggestions.
- Check your follows. If anyone is from '', refollow them on ''.

@cypnk It may be too late for a #FF, but there's still time to name @bob in a #SubSunday post.
It's a bit late for #FF, but if you want a sprinkle of philosophy in your TL along with some hacking, @bob is well worth your attention

quick #FF on monday of people who post good stuff if you're new to mastodon and/or want to learn more about how it works

@cassolotl @Gargron @maloki

some hashtags: #mastotips / #mastotips #tootorial #FAQ #mastopedia

i also recommend following admins from other instances when you see them around - they usually have a pulse on the #meta of #mastodon (the #mastometa if you will)

#Mastoversary #tootrospective: the first time I appeared in FF. I was a little excited and overwhelmed.

FF still makes me acutely nervous. I like sharing my friends with others, but I don't like people to think they are less important to me by exclusion.

Pro Tip # Eleventy Billion

Instance Admins and Moderators *CAN* see your IP address and other bits of information related to your account.

If you're at risk, be mindful of your instance choice. The admin/moderation team *CAN* see your IP.

See attached screencap for how much data the admin and mod teams have access to.

Be sure to follow the following:

Emelia of Sugars - The tears she sheds as she flees become spiced gumdrops on the lane! But: The more you eat, the slower the pursuit, so pace yourself, hungry peers! Sweets and terror!

Truth's Shade - Usually found in libraries and other quiet, shunned spaces. Identified by the goggled gaze of those who've followed it ahead of you. Are you sure this chase is for you, pally? That you can't instead live with your charming ignorance?

Bug AH33 - That's what I named this bug right here. Look at its legs. See how they go.

If you're thinking about creating a bot, think twice and know is an instance, it exists and is where your bot account should likely live.

Mastodon is PEOPLE FIRST and a poorly developed bot and/or a bad actor bot will get you strung up by your toenails quickly.

Seriously, think twice.

This instance is for bots and bot allies. Anyone can sign up to be a user here or run your bot here.

Users agree to the Code of Conduct listed on the extended description page.

#Introductions #DeleteFacebook #FF #FollowFriday

Sensitivity is a 'thing' here. As a whole people with Mastodon accounts tend to be sensitive towards others needs/wants/desires/triggers and the like.

You'll see a LOT of posts with Content Warnings (-) or (+) or (~) [neutral]in the title. This helps us avoid triggers, increases sensitivity towards others and HELPS.

We also ❤ sensitive media as well. #FreeTheNipple but be respectful at the same time. We may be progressive but we care too.

Boost vs Retweet vs Reshare

Boost are *INTENTIONALLY* setup so you can't comment as part of the boost.

This is VERY DIFFERENT than retweeting and re-sharing.

Gargron has made it clear this is going to remain this way for the foreseeable future.

It forces people to interact directly rather than flinging commentary into the void without meaningful or useful discussion.

tfw your #ff posts don't count

#FF #FollowFriday (alphabetical order) #Introductions:


I'd add @phessler, but if you're on you got him for free. ;-)

N.B. If you're new, add an avatar to your account. You're more likely to get follow-backs.

Also, when posting images, you can add alt-text if you hover over the image after it finishes loading (before clicking "Toot"). Really helpful for the visually impaired.

Please recommend to me more people to follow who talk about music and old technology and vintage scifi and maybe text adventure games?

#followfriday #ff

It's hard to find new people on a small instance, so boosts and replies are welcome and encouraged.

Hey, @daspitzberg, who's a #platformcoop organizer and key to the #BuyTwitter effort, is on #socialcoop!

Welcome! :)

#FF #followFriday

Fair enough, and nicely done with the dual purpose of posting. ^_^

Although -- and I suppose this is me being overcautious, more than anything else -- I suppose it'd be polite to ask people about being #FF -ed anyway, just in case they're not looking for a follower burst or something?

Maybe that's just me.
