What Is a Mastodon Server?

Unlike centralized social media platforms, such as Facebook or Twitter, Mastodon operates through independent servers made by different individuals, organizations, or communities.

You can choose which server (group/community) you want to join based on your preferences. Each server can have a different focus, community guidelines, user base and moderation style.

How to Join a Mastodon Server:

Explore the list of available servers categorized by language, interests, topics, sign-up process and themes.
Choose a server and click on "Create account".

Follow the server's instructions for creating an account and joining their community.
