Mastodon

Note: The documentation has moved to a different repository, where it is compiled to docs.joinmastodon.org. This repository is no longer updated.

Mastodon is a free, open-source social network server based on open web protocols like ActivityPub and OStatus. The social focus of the project is a viable decentralized alternative to commercial social media silos that returns the control of the content distribution channels to the people.
