Phenomenology of Mastodon Show more
How do users recognize one another in social media? This paper focuses specifically on the phenomenological experience of using the website “Mastodon.” Mastodon is an open source social media platform. Its format is similar to Twitter; however, users can create their own servers for specific groups of people and continue to see posts from the main Mastodon server. Mastodon users refer to this as the “fediverse”, short for federated universe.
