lux blue mastodon Mastodon hosted on social.lux.blue

An instance of the Mastodon social network. Hosted by Nathan.

The code is open. The host is trusted. We're all friends here. Have fun!

Watch this brief video for an overview of Mastodon. Check out the about/more page for quick tips on getting started. More detailed information can be found in the User Guide and the FAQ.

Try the Fedilab or Tusky apps on Android. Try the Amaroq or Tootdon apps on iOS /iPhone. It also works well to simply open social.lux.blue on most desktop and mobile browsers.

The rules: No hate. We practice love and respect. This is a community, not a popularity contest. Spend more time with real people than you do with your phone. Go outside once in a while. We'll be here when you get back.

We don't track you, look at your stuff, show you ads or determine which posts you see. We don't manipulate, exploit or capitalize. We value lively conversation and civil debate. We strive for community. We have a good time. We use the tools to share the best of who we are.

Nathan runs this show and he reserves the right to silence voices he deems hateful, disrespectful or deceitful and to revoke any user's access permissions, at any time, for any reason, except as limited by law. That said, unless you're a jerk we can probably work something out. There is also no guarantee that your posts will stay around forever or survive Nathans's tinkering with the server.

What is Mastodon?

Mastodon is a social network based on open web protocols and free, open-source software. It is decentralized like e-mail.

Administered by:

Built for real conversation
With 500 characters at your disposal and support for granular content and media warnings, you can express yourself the way you want to.
You’re a person, not a product
Mastodon is not a commercial network. No advertising, no data mining, no walled gardens. There is no central authority.
Always within reach
Multiple apps for iOS, Android, and other platforms thanks to a developer-friendly API ecosystem allow you to keep up with your friends anywhere.
A more humane approach
Learning from failures of other networks, Mastodon aims to make ethical design choices to combat the misuse of social media.
