Some people I have spoken to think that there are 300k on the whole of Mastodon because mastodon.social says it has 300k.

With smaller instances this is an even bigger problem, people may think e.g. an instance with 25 people only has 25 people to talk to. It is not clear at all to newbies what the true reach of Mastodon is.

It could at least be an option for instance admins that they could switch on or off?

I'm struck by how similar the Russian influence ops were to traditional Internet direct marketing campaigns. Make organic ad copy masked as legit content (guides, etc), buy targeted GOOG/FB/etc ads pointing to content. Main diff is payload: manipulating your vote, not your purse.

On thing in Mastodon that is kinda annoying is that if someone posts say just an image, or a text with mostly hashtags its very hard to "click on the post" so you can see the comments on it.
You need to click the little dots which isn't really all that intuitive.

Digital Empowerment in Rural India - powered by FreedomBox.

Sudhamsh Kandukuri and I presented yesterday at XConf India 2018.

An inspiring story of a grassroots movement where people rejected Facebook's Free Basics and installed low-cost community Wi-Fi networks instead.
A FreedomBox on the network provides most of the essential digital services required, offline.
