Regarding Mastodon hashtag searches:
I’m writing a new Mastodon blog post and want to be sure that I understand hashtag searches - #needhelp please.
It seems that since I'm running a search when logged into a specific instance, that the results of the search may differ between instances, since each instance chooses which other instances to connect to. (?)
Could someone tell me please if I have a correct understanding of this? Thanks.
Preparing to enter the weekend on #mastodon: https://social.targaryen.house/media/CZcYezzTdLdA2AuIR5A
This plot is really interesting. It gives perspective on the fediverse, including GNU Social servers.
#Mastodon #GNUSocial #Fediverse
For those interested, we’ve been organizing & discussing #SMEM (Social Media in Emergency Management) on birdsite for 6+ years. We’ve also built systems for bringing together virtual teams of volunteers & we’ve been discussing that on the #VOST (Virtual Operations Support Teams) tag for many years also. The French tag for this concept is #MSGU & there are already many MSGU folks here. (Bonjour MSGU friends!) We have a weekly birdsite chat on the tag #smemchat at 12:30pm EST (4:30pm UTC).
Here’s a link (below) directly to the blog post mentioned above. I’’ve only been on Mastodon for a week and a half, but I’m really enjoying it and look forward to participating in this amazing, diverse, enthusiastic, funny and kind community. https://thinkdisaster.wordpress.com/2017/04/25/mastodon-yet-another-sm-platform-for-smem-and-vost-to-watch-during-incidents-and-disasters/?preview=true&preview_id=791&preview_nonce=dba56dd15f&frame-nonce=d93ef9e9b3
Hello tooters, nice to meet you, I’m Scott & I help people during disasters by “social listening” (on all SM platforms) & getting the info to people who can help. I work with professional emergency managers & disaster aid workers, as well as volunteer digital humanitarians around the world. I’m very interested & enthusiastic about #Mastodon. I’ve posted about it on my blog here: https://thinkdisaster.com
I’ve collected up all of the articles, posts, videos, resources & tools that I can find.
