What is Mastodon

Mastodon is an open-source social media software compatible with the ActivityPub protocol.

A Mastodon server can communicate with other servers in the Fediverse (other ActivityPub compatible servers), meaning its users can post, interact, follow or be followed by other users on remote servers.

No single company controls the Fediverse, and the servers in the network are independently operated. Anyone can run a server, even you!

"OpenStreetMap exists to take control of maps from centralized governments or megacorps. Thanks to Masto.host, we're taking control of our social media. The service from Hugo has been top-notch and stays out of our way, so we can get on with mapping the world, without having to think about sysadmining!"

"Juuuust in case you haven't heard, @hugo is kind of a bad ass. I submit trouble report (without a ticket, because i'm a filthy casual) and he triaged/addressed in 4 minutes flat. now *that* is some response time I can get behind, because its better than any SLA I've ever actually experienced."
