Well considering we left for lunch at 1.30 and got home at 10.30, I’m not feeling too shabby

Hello, new users of the #fediverse:

You're probably wondering how to find people to interact with in Fedi. On the right-hand side of your screen there are links to the Local timeline and the Federated timeline.

The Local timeline consists of the posts to the fedi server you're on in realtime. They are your fellow users wherever you are.

The Federated timeline (or the firehose, as we sometimes call it) is a realtime feed of all of the activity on the Fediverse that your server (your "instance") sees from everywhere on the Fediverse.

There is no rush to find people here. The Fediverse doesn't do content or influencing. We do community. We make friends and occasionally do weird shit.

Take your time. You won't be sorry.

To help some of the newcomers make connections: name 5-7 things that interest you but aren't in your profile, as tags so they are searchable. Then boost this post or repeat its instructions so others know to do the same.



I’m at the end of semester B of the second year of an English lit and Lang degree, after a module (loved it) and and Enlightenment Era module (harder going) I’m now reading Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

A few years ago I made this flow chart of which Mastodon posts end up in which timelines!

So, you can see how each instance will have a different local timeline, and even a slightly different federated timeline - and you can see why the federated timeline moves so much faster than the local one, too.

This is why it's important to boost good posts and use hashtags - the fediverse is fragmented and harder to search by nature.
