Setting Up a Mastodon Profile

  • Adam Douglas

Understanding how Mastodon works and how to interact with it can be challenging for some. The Mastodon project does provide documentation for the end user, which is great to see. However, the end user documentation to me is missing some formatting improvements, and it also lacks some important information. So I decided to write up my own documentation to supplement the official documentation.

Assumptions

The docs assumes a Mastodon instance has been chosen and an account has already been created. If you need help understanding Mastodon as a whole, check out Kev Quirk’s posts below.

Documentation

The documentation has been posted on my knowledge base at Mastodon Profile Setup.
