On , for larger instances such as mastodon.social, you should use the Tab to discover new users and posts, since the local and federated timelines will be choked.

For personal instances, why do we need a local timeline? The Federated Timeline should be easy to handle, though.

Apparently the good news from the exodus to is that it will convince more people to set up specialized fediverse instances. I hope that the Object Show community sets up a Mastodon instance, for example. I hope local communities set up instances.
I hope people set up their own instances for their own communities. By doing this it makes the much healthier and less prone to control.

If you run your own servers, it’s better since you own the data and are responsible for any breaches that happen. It also keeps federation healthy in the .
So if you want more security, switch to the Fediverse and you won’t need for now.

On a shared instance, I can simply call myself James. On my self-hosted instance that only I use, I have to call myself @james@pleroma.jamesp.org.
Mastodon gives me better discovery, Pleroma gives me more control. That’s why I use both accounts.
