A colleague is asking me what PR should do with #Mastodon. Hm, I think understanding the principles of M is a first step. This should lead to the insight that branding, corporate communications or marketing are misplaced here. Would this answer be reasonable?
Still, I'm not very interested in playing with bots (except Slackbot) but this story is good read http://www.niemanlab.org/2017/04/this-is-how-the-new-york-times-is-using-bots-to-create-more-one-to-one-experiences-with-readers

Mastodon User Guide on Github, very handy https://github.com/tootsuite/documentation/blob/master/Using-Mastodon/User-guide.md
Good piece from @sargoth about building communities, about "cyberoptimish", and about doing something a bit different within Mastodon - https://medium.com/@sargoth/mastodon-pineapples-social-media-and-other-unanswered-questions-c5127c7c9aa0
I understand my social bookmarks as reading recommandations for others and I'm happy that my favorit service Refind.com now offers feeds for this. Wrote a short blog post (in GER) on it. The bookmarks are in GER and EN, topics are tech, politics, online communication.

There's an app for that: Using Mastodon with #Amaroq now which is working really fine.
btw.: Found this article by @seanbonner on Mastodon very helpful https://medium.com/@seanbonner/taking-a-ride-on-mastodon-4fe0c6e60e04
So more and more people seem to get confused by Facebook and its new functions. To me it sounds like Facebook has a serious problem to keep its users active. Guess, many of them feel similar like I do: The platform seems more and more a waste of time and the algorithm is making things even worse. So I'm curious where playing with Mastodon will lead to.
