In: Social Media

Mastodon is a decentralized and open-source social media platform designed as an alternative to centralized social networks like Twitter. It operates on a federated model, where multiple independently-run servers (instances) connect to create a network of interconnected communities, referred to as the ‘Fediverse’.

Mastodon is free and open-source software developed by a non-profit organization. Public support directly sustains development and evolution.


Pros & Cons

Decentralized nature means there is no single central authority or corporation controlling the entire network
A more customized and focused social experience and privacy controls
Mastodon's federated model and the concept of instances can be confusing for new users
Smaller user base compared to mainstream social media platforms
May not integrate as seamlessly with third-party apps and services
