Mastodon is on a mission to realize social media’s potential to bring us together.

Social media companies have earned huge profits by making us enraged and addicted. They make it hard to leave by keeping our social graph hostage. They serve investors and advertisers first, and then us eventually. Why should our online meeting places all be controlled by a few large companies that put us last?

Join the movement.

Take back social.

Mastodon is social media run by your community, not a company. No ads, no algorithms, no manipulation, no surveillance. Your content and social graph are yours to use on other services. And it will stay that way; Mastodon can’t be captured by monopolies because it’s open-source and non-profit.

Mastodon is the future of social media, and it’s growing fast.
