Lots of features and ways to find people.
Federates with both diaspora & OStatus (and tells you where people post from)
Hashtag cloud in profile, hashtags, mentions and subjects are highlighted at the bottom of every post.
Intermittent PHP errors.
Closing thoughts for today:
Mastodon is still where it's at for open source social media as a whole from my very limited research point of view. It's hard for me to pick between either at the moment. While the features of #friendica are tasty, my gut really likes #diaspora. Time will tell as I explore further.
@trevdev I've already found almost too many people to follow who share my interests. It's hard to read all they write each day. I don't need any more "timelines" or 'feeds' or firehoses.
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!
