    @sda I have run mastodon, it was bulky and slow compared to GNUSocial. My instance has been up a couple months, but I used to run as well. Technical differences:

    # has (And Mastodon does not):
    - PHP
    - Plugins, modules, etc (easier to customize)
    - Runs in Apache, Nginx, lighttpd, etc
    - MySQL support
    - Windows Support with IIS and PHP5
    - User polls (Voting system)
    - Groups
    - JSON, ATOM, and RSS feeds for accounts and API
    - True support for SSL/TLS
    - Admin can set text limit. ( can send out 2000 char. notices (Or toots as they are called on Mastodon))

    # has (And GNUSocial does not):
    - Content Warning System (Allowing users to hide posts)
    - Privacy Settings (GNUSocial kinda has this, but is way too limited)
    - Runs on Ruby with or without docker (GNUSocial has docker support as well, but that is old)
    - PostgreSQL with Redis Queue (GNUSocial can use redis queue as well like my instance does, but Mastodon uses it by default)
    - Native Statistics page (GNUSocial needs a module installed for this)

    I can't think of anything else at the moment. I prefer GNUSocail because it is written in PHP (Which I know and love, unlike ruby)

    Let me know if you have any more questions, also (Ran by me as well) has a great tutorial for installing and maintaining Mastodon AND GNUSocial. Check it out sometime.
