"To help some of the newcomers make connections: name 5-7 things that interest you but aren't in your profile, as tags so they are searchable. Then boost this post or repeat its instructions so others know to do the same."
I'd love a way to have like a master account that acts as my face across instances and syncs who I'm following and all that between them.
One of the things that makes getting into Mastodon confusing is dealing with accounts across instances. I have three accounts that I use. One, because it has a large general interest population that's interesting. Another has a cool queer community that I like to see. My main one (this) is a personal instance that I would like to use to interact on these other ones. It feels silo-ed, the information you see on profiles is limited, and the jumping between accounts is a pain.
