a short story on my adventures with socials platforms!
plus a huge cook secret directly from Aztec cuisine!! if you're interested in cooking anyway!
@BabyWOGUE "Mastodon is a blockchain node network" 😂
@BabyWOGUE it has nothing to do with blockchain. It's just decentralized like blockchain and email.
@BabyWOGUE btw if you don't like the 512c limit you can find an instance (that's what we call them, not "nodes") with a higher limit or without any limit. Or run your own with whatever limits and other stuff you want.
@bugaevc oh! i thought it was a global thing! thanks!
btw i dont see a reason to run my own instance! so i wont do that!

There are ActivityPub social networks that don't have the limit, you can do normal blogging there, they have different features and UI than Mastodon. And they're still compatible and connected to Mastodon. The closest to G+ is probably Friendica.
The thing is — GNU Social, Friendica, Mastodon, Pleroma, ... — they're all a part of the Fediverse, so you can use whatever you like and still talk to and follow anyone else anywhere else on the Fediverse.
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
