What do y'all think of making the first of each month be a social media push day?

Like, if you have limited energy to improve the social media world (eg by getting your friends to try or doing some setup or hack project) let's to do it in the same rhythm so we can support each other better.

Like, if four of your friends all try mastodon for the first time the same day, it's likely to go better than if they each try a different week.

Worth a try for a few months?

@sandro Might work!

This will also help up us feel less alone against all of those users of other social media which seem to just never stop trying to force you into the same place as they are.

This is a good idea, and similar to the DuckDuckGo awareness day every month on the 1st.

The only issue if you and friends have different interests; what instance to join.

@sandro worth an attempt. I just blogged a bit about Mastodon missing a long tail. Changing that requires the smallest instances reaching out to their network, and take them in/help them set up their own instance.
