Mastodon's a cool place, but it's private like a local coffee shop, not a home bathroom.

Remember that the admin of your instance can see EVERYTHING you post, including direct posts. They can even disable 2 factor authentication, if you have it enabled (and you should. No really, enable that stuff now.)

Bottom line: Find an instance where you feel you can trust your admin, and don't send direct toots unless you trust the admin at the recipient's instance as well.

yup especially media, which goes into a public CDN only obfuscated by a somewhat randomized URL, if you don't want your nudes to leak don't post them, even in DMs!

mastodon isn't unsafe, but it's not totally private, at all. only end to end encryption can get you that and that's just not a thing at the moment.
