A science community for science communication.

A science community for science communication. Mastodon hosted on scicomm.xyz

This instance is aimed at scientists, science students, science communicators, or anyone with a rational mindset wanting to interact with each other and to help share science-related topics and thinking to the wider Fediverse.

So come here to ask questions, answer questions, and to share ideas with other science-minded folk. The federated nature of the network will also help to spread your science know-how and enthusiasm with the rest of the Mastodon network!

We are only a small instance at the moment but we are stable and secure.

What is Mastodon?

Mastodon is a social network based on open web protocols and free, open-source software. It is decentralized like e-mail.

Built for real conversation
With 500 characters at your disposal and support for granular content and media warnings, you can express yourself the way you want to.
You’re a person, not a product
Mastodon is not a commercial network. No advertising, no data mining, no walled gardens. There is no central authority.
Always within reach
Multiple apps for iOS, Android, and other platforms thanks to a developer-friendly API ecosystem allow you to keep up with your friends anywhere.
A more humane approach
Learning from failures of other networks, Mastodon aims to make ethical design choices to combat the misuse of social media.
