Explaining Mastodon in a conversation is so much easier than doing it through text on a website. That has never gotten easier. In fact it's gotten harder because now you have to worry about not sounding like a cryptocurrency because the concept of "decentralization" has been co-opted...


@Gargron How I would describe it to someone who only knows FB/Twitter:

It’s like a community website which can be general or focused on a topic. Each site has its own rules and admins. There are many of these sites around the world and admins connect them together to share their users’ content with other sites.
