Mastodon includes a system for verifying website ownership. This is useful if you want to prove your identity.

✅ To verify site ownership, go to Edit Profile > Appearance > Profile Metadata. Add your website address (including https://) to the metadata, then paste the verification code into your website's own code, then click "Save Changes".

If you've done this correctly, the address on your profile metadata will turn green with a tick next to it.

Mastodon instances have a variety of different themes to choose from.

✅ You can change your Mastodon theme by going to Preferences, then Appearance, then Site Theme, then click on "Save Changes".

This is particularly useful if you have several different accounts open, so you can switch between them without getting them mixed up.

Different instances have different selections of themes, ask your admin if you want extra themes added.

If you are looking for a privacy-friendly alternative to Facebook Events, you might want to check out Mobilizon:

joinmobilizon.org/en

It's a free open source federated events platform, and is part of the Fediverse as it uses the ActivityPub protocol.

Because it's still new, it currently only federates between Mobilizon instances. You can't follow Mobilizon instances from Mastodon yet, however this is planned for the future.
