Dear #India after #twitter its also time to ditch #Instagram ! Here is the #Fediverse alternative for #photos - #Pixelfed a federated #picture sharing site. You can also follow pixelfed accounts and posts directly from #Mastodon itself.



"You can also follow pixelfed accounts and posts directly from itself."

sorry, it is not clear how to do that?

@janci @pavi Inside mastodon's search box, you can search for the pixelfed user you want to follow, paste his name in there, and subscribe to him. This way every update that person posts to pixelfed, it will show up as a toot on your timeline :) very useful.

@vancha @pavi

I am trying to find myself but not success. I can find another accounts from pixelfed on mastadon instance.

can you find my pixelfed account at

@janci @pavi probably, but I don't know what your pixelfed account is ^ ^ Can you share it? (maybe do it in a private message if you want)

@vancha @pavi

check my mastodon profile there should be link


Thanks @janci for helping out @vancha How does it feel linking up two different #Fediverse softwares 💪

@pavi @janci haha amazing ^^ did you know that because of activitypub, there are multiple platforms (like peertube) that connect to mastodon in the same way as pixelfed? :)

@janci @pavi put the full name of the pixelfed account in your mastodon search, for example @ handle @ My account, for example is @tofuwabohu and I can follow and boost it from Mastodon

if I write just name of account in search box it will find only mastodon account BUT if I write @ acount_name @ then it find my pixelfed account

well, it is bit strange because if I write "vancha" or "tofuwabohu" it will find all your accounts

anyway, @vancha and @tofuwabohu thanks for help

@janci That's because they are already cached, accounts that have followers or boosts from/on Mastodoninstances can usually be found on these instances. I don't know in detail how this works, but for newer accounts or accounts that had no recent connection to your instance, usually the full name is needed. Glad it worked :)
