@mavica it’s less that i’m confused about specific issues and more that i’m frustrated with the general inaccessibility of using mastodon if (like me) you aren’t familiar with the underlying structures that it operates on

@wren yeah my issue is more that it's kind of difficult and opaque to like, find the people that i want to follow, or understand why people can't find me sfsdf

@wren yeah that's basically the only thing i can do at this point

it's just very obvious that this was built by developers without the kind of oversight that would ensure that it has an accessible experience for users who aren't developers themselves... the non-thought of computer engineers. which isn't the worst thing ever but it's hard to transition from a product designed to be used by any idiot with a computer to smth that requires me to like, understand it

i'm still thinking about what i do and don't like about masto. the issue i think is that the reasons i like it are kind of abstract (no threat of random suspension, not subject to corporate interests) whereas the issues i have are like. very direct in my user experience

the playlist i was listening to vs. the song spotify selected to play next

@starscream i think the UI is similar enough to twitter where i can sidestep this just by avoiding any larger congregations of people but i understand... mainly my issues are kind of like, functionalities that aren't there bc it's independently developed w/o a large company to like, smooth the edges for mass usership. which is both good and bad

i'm logging all the pros/cons between masto and twt in my brain... having both is at the moment too much social media load for my brain (altho i have the same mutuals on both) so i'm thinking and thinking

i have no earthly idea how public my posts are rn so if i seem like i’m running through the town square nude then please have the understanding that i’m your grandfather who doesn’t know what is going on bc the town square and the clothes are made of computers

@troubleMoney i was thinking of my personal social circle mainly but that’s true as well... little social pockets

obv if everyone moved to masto this aspect would cease to exist but i’m enjoying the smallness over here

i fell asleep so hard i’m now about to d**. i guess i can say “die” here
