My sole accomplishment so far this Saturday morning is creating a Ryan Gosling meme to make my husband laugh:
Day 3: Still the only user of most of the hashtags in my personal tag cloud.
Welp, now I'm thoroughly baffled. A search--in my other instance--for a hashtag I have used here *twice* turns up *one* hit over there: my second usage (which I posted here after I joined the other instance). Turns up zero hits for other hashtags I've used here once (before I joined a second instance).
The results of my highly scientific experiment, then, are that hashtag search works across instances only if the Red King is still dreaming.
Okay, I joined another instance (and I have no idea if that's uncool or not) and tested the hashtag search. Seems to be specific to your instance. For inst--er, for example—I show up as the only user of #kidlit so far on this instance. I searched from another instance and got zero hits for that hashtag. #learningtheropes
@Lissa and we've all been dropped off on roughly the same day, not knowing hardly anyone.
NEW FRIEND TIME :grin:
I just looked up hashtags for a bunch of my main topics and...looks like my crowd hasn't arrived quite yet. But I cross over to lots of fields.
About risk profile:
- Mastodon is like email because you can't delete federated toots
- Mastodon is like twitter in that Google's search bots index it, unless your admins robot.txt it away
- Mastodon is like being a teenager because the people that own your instance can see all your private stuff
Have a talk with your admin about their policies.
By default, assume everyone will be able to read your toots forever.
