The world of general social networks is dominated by Meta, with Instagram and Facebook, Twitter and TikTok, with a high level of penetration across a large part of the population. However, there are other alternatives and among them, we find Mastodon, which presents itself as a decentralized social network.

A social network that offers privacy

Having adopted a cute picture of the prehistoric animal, which is its mascot, it presents itself as a social network that is somewhat similar to Twitter, where users can follow other profiles, read their posts, publish their own posts, and reply to threads... and all ad-free. But perhaps the feature that really sets it apart from other social networks is that it is decentralized, which means greater user privacy and the absence of a large corporation that controls the data generated.

So, if you are looking for a social network where you can find content that interests you and where you feel more protected in terms of privacy, maybe Mastodon is what you need. These are its main features:

  • Decentralized management.
  • Ad-free.
  • Express yourself with emojis, images, GIFs, videos, and audio.
  • Share content from any application.
  • Discover accounts and hashtags fast.
  • Create surveys asking for user opinions.
  • Dark, light, and true black mode for the interface.

Requirements and additional information:

  • Minimum operating system requirements: Android 6.0.

Mastodon Tips & Tricks

  • Mastodon vs Twitter: comparison and differences

    It is not the social media with the most users. Nor the most profitable for its creators. But Twitter has become a reference platform. Celebrities from all over the world share their opinions on Twitter. Including actors, directors, sportsmen, writers, politicians, journalists, and more.

  • Mastodon Instances: what they are and how they work

    Mastodon has caught on in the face of changes and bad vibes on Twitter. It defines itself as a microblogging platform, like Twitter or Tumblr, but says it is not a social network. In reality, there are thousands of independent social networks.
