Mastodon is a free, open-source social network. A decentralized alternative to commercial platforms, it avoids the risks of a single company monopolizing your communication. Pick a server that you trust — whichever you choose, you can interact with everyone else. Anyone can run their own Mastodon instance and participate in the social network seamlessly.
Mastodon is a distributed, open-source social platform. This instance is run by a graduate worker and physics PhD candidate in Ithaca NY, but can be used to connect with people on any other GNU Social compatible instance. There are no formal rules on this instance for now, just don't be a jerk! We reserve the right to keep anything and anyone bad off the server.
