Is it possible to create Groups in Mastodon? A bunch of folkdancers are considering an en masse migration out of Facebook, but wonder how Mastodon could serve to connect our community? Sorry for the basic question.

So Mastodon has an interface for developing apps, but I don't see any apps that I can add to this instance of Mastodon. Am I just not figuring out how to do this?

I'm a recovering PhD in Classics, working on a piece that involves the misuse of stats by Classicists. It would be a better piece if I understood stats myself.
