The social network decentralized Mastodon announced that it will be making it easier for users to register an account with the Fediverseor at a minimum, it has its own servers. When you attempt to sign-up on Mastodon it will offer the option of creating an account at Mastodon. social instead of selecting the server.
One of the major criticisms about signing up to the Mastodon network is the lengthy sign-up process for various servers. This can be a hassle when compared to a central social network, such as Twitter and Instagram.
Mastodon the founder and chief executive Eugene Rochko said in a blog post that this latest feature does not impede users’ option of selecting one server or moving to another one after registering. They can pick “Pick my own server” should they decide to switch to a different server.
Rochko added that the updated onboarding has made it simpler for people to begin and grasp the advantages of decentralization further.
“You might be wondering how a default server feature can help decentralize. We believe it’s crucial to Mastodon to be an excellent application by its own merits and not merely because of its philosophy. If we are able to only appeal to those who are already interested in decentralization, our capability to bring decentralization into mainstream culture becomes much more difficult.” the founder said.
“This gives us a far better chance of showcasing what decentralized social networks have to offer instead of having that person bounce and never hearing from them again.”
In the year 2000, when Elon Musk was appointed the new CEO of Twitter many users began to sign up on Mastodon to search for a different network. In one instance, the team of Rochko had to block sign-ups on Mastodon. social to ensure the quality of service.
With the most recent version, the social media network is updating its moderation and infrastructure tools to ensure a smooth and secure experience for its users.
In addition, Mastodon is soon rolling out enhancements like quoted responses as well as better content search and profile search, and the ability to build groups. This will make it a more effective social network for those who want to create followers and build communities.
I hope that these features help third-party Mastodon clients such as Ivory, Mammoth, and Woolly.
Over the past few weeks, the Jack Dorsey-owned decentralized Bluesky has witnessed a lot of activity. While it is in an invite-only state, it has recently released an Android application, released moderators that are new, released new tools for developers, and surpassed the 50,000-user mark. The network appears as Twitter in the sense of engaging with posts. This attracts users who may prefer another network.
Mastodon now has a much simpler registration procedure for users. Ivan Mehta originally published on TechCrunch
