How to source on the lesser known sites!! Mastodon.Social

Recruiting Process

Mastodon is a free and open-source self-hosted social networking service. It allows anyone to host

their own server node in the network, and its various separately operated user bases are federated

across many different servers. Mastodon.Social is a little known site in the community and

few have tried to source in it. Well to do this without worry you need go no further than into your

bag of tricks and pull out an old tried and true tool, called x-raying.

So to source within Mastodon.Social you simply need to create an x-ray string, like the one below.

site:Mastodon.Social developer

If you run the strings above in google you will get the results below.

Now keep in mind you will see some great info, all you need to do is put on your Social detective hat and away you go.

If you need more info on X-raying see my blog post…

Until next week may the source be with you!!
