A little birdy told us you needed to know more about Mastodon.

Ready to escape the drama of existing social media platforms and try something new and awesome in the world of social media? In Mastodon For Dummies, experienced tech trainers Chris Minnick and Mike McCallister show you exactly how to use Mastodon, the hot decentralized social media offering on the web and destination for thousands of social media migrants. Learn how to sign up for the service on your choice of server and get familiar with the rules of what's sure to become your new favorite app. You'll discover how to connect with other people, attract your own followers, and make yourself right at home in the Mastodon community.

You’ve probably heard that Mastodon is the open-source Twitter or a Twitter alternative. There’s certainly some truth to those definitions, but they don’t really tell you all that much about Mastodon itself. It’s true that Mastodon is a microblogging service like Twitter. You can post short messages of up to 500 characters that friends and strangers can read and respond to. You can share links to news, information, photos, and video from across the internet. But Mastodon is far from being a Twitter clone. It operates on a different economic model and isn’t owned by anyone, especially a celebrity billionaire.

Mastodon is based on the open-source ActivityPub protocol. Unless you're planning to write your own app that integrates with Mastodon, you don't need to know anything more than that ActivityPub is freely available to anyone to do with as they please. Because it runs on a free and open standard, the official Mastodon desktop app and the mobile app are not (by a long shot) the only ways to use Mastodon. In fact, most long-time users of Mastodon will tell you that the official Mastodon app is currently inferior to many of the apps developed by third-party programmers. But you don't have to take anyone else's word for it, because nine of the apps listed in this chapter cost less than a beer at the local pub.

In the book, you'll find:
Easy-to-follow instructions on how to choose the Mastodon server that suits you best
Instructions for establishing new connections on a new social platform and learning the rules of the road
Tips for conducting business on...
