#Newbies: 6 Tips for beginners
1/6 Post a short personal introduction headed by #Introduction, then you have to pin it to make it stand out on your timeline. Use #hashtags for all relevant words. Example: https://mastodon.cloud/@jlori/109331733327310686
2/6 Explore the internal search engine: you can search for tags (#hashtags), users (@username@instance), profile URLs (https://instance/@username) and posts URLs (Toots).
3/6 To follow users from other instances you have to copy the username or profile URL and paste it in the search field.
4/6 To follow a topic (for example: #MastodonTips) search the tag and fix the column (top right corner/ Settings/Fix).
6/6 In order to make your content more visible in #Mastodon, you can use hashtags within the text and also at the end of your postings.
