Watching #MozFest session Dialogues & Debates: Making the Fediverse¹ and panelist @stevetex@mozilla.social (@stevetex) just announced that we (#Mozilla) are standing up a #Mastodon instance², starting with limited sign-ups.

I’m excited that Mozilla is experimenting with #socialWeb alternatives to centralized #socialMedia silos.

There are many #Mozillians with #fediverse addresses you can follow:
* https://wiki.mozilla.org/Mastodon

Several of these folks also have their own #IndieWeb sites.

It’s interesting seeing how people are individually choosing to use a fediverse address on someone else’s server, vs their own server like with a subdomain, vs just using their existing site.

One trend I have seen is people using someone else’s Mastodon server as a stepping stone, a learning experience, before migrating to either self-hosting Mastodon (or an easier to run alternative like microblog.pub³, not to be confused with micro.blog), or ideally directly using their own site, blog etc. to connect to the fediverse.

Do you have an @-@ address and want to use your own site instead?

If you’re a #webdev, you can totally do this by connecting your existing personal site with https://fed.brid.gy/ and own your presence on the web, social web, fediverse all at one place.
