@ttscoff hey, welcome to :mastodon: Mastodon and the :fediverse: Fediverse in general!

It's weird, but it also has cool emojis!

@nate Thanks! I really like the idea of this, especially as I try to start divesting myself of social media…

@ttscoff Yeah, same. I feel like the conversations here are healthier than conversations on twitter (usually...) and more honest than conversations on Facebook (again, usually...)

@nate so how does one get/use the cool emojis you mentioned?

@ttscoff The default web client has a little image up in the right corner that lets you search them. You can also just type them if you know the one you want; it's a word between colons. So if you type "fedivervse" between colons you get :fediverse:

If your instance has "seen" an emoji you can generally use it, and an admin can import other people's favorites into your instance manually as well.

Frogmob Life

Hey there! The frogmob life is a simple, calm life. Frogs don't waste energy on anger and fighting. Or something. I like those two words together and my very first ever website was called, so I resurrected that here in the fediverse. Expect this text to change. We are interested in low-stress, happy and open discussions of life, faith, the universe, and Doctor Who.
