Halcyon the Mastodon Web Interface application has done something I've never seen as far as accessibility. Not only is it available as an app for Yunohost, but it even will automate the process!!

Bravo!!!! (golf clap)

The Fediverse is awesome!

Subscribing to some great artists on is easy :)

Browse artists on Funkwhale, now enter the username in the search bar of , follow, and voila, all updates will show up in your timeline!

Let the centralized services do that, ha ha;)

BOOST if you find it helpful!

For anyone looking for an compatible social home but would prefer a more FB like interface you may want to kick the tires on the social network.

Right now there are not nearly as many instances as you'd find for Mastodon but the great advantage is you can still follow all of your contacts from Zot.

Currently, I'm trying out freetobe.social where they are still offering free registration:)

Give it a try, you might like it:)

Be kind, don't make fedizens use Youtube, it's as easy as using a redirect service for Invidious services.

FRIENDS DON'T LET FRIENDS BE SURVEILLED

If you're wondering
invidio.us/ lives on, with a list of publicly run instances.

Please use INVIDIOUS or similar links instead of Youtube, we can all do our part;)

Select instance - Invidious invidio.us/

Don't forget if you want to follow topics on Mastodon you can search by , and people use them in your posts if you want them to be seen!

It's been said ad nauseum here, there are no algorithm's if you want others to see your content it needs to be searchable.

If you want to find content based on topic, group etc,

1 - search in the search bar
2 - click the hashtag which opens another column
3 - pin it

(1/2)

Now all they need to do is enable user creation (without upload) to allow creation of playlists and keep subscriptions:)

One big advantage about this new search website is that videos can be viewed directly on the site without the need to go to the original instance.

This is great, since you watch and view on one site instead of being presented with everything form the original instance. This goes a long way to filtering out the noise, and inappropriate content. While at the same time giving non-technical users a one stop frontend to all peertube content, like youtube does.
