If your Mastodon server does not have enough activity to be interesting to new users, that chicken-and-egg problem can now be solved by subscribing to a so-called **federation relay**. Federation relays are separate servers that act as a, well, *relay* between participating Mastodon servers, that is, every participating server receives every public toot from every other participating server.
It has to be mentioned that the core design of Mastodon where a server receives only toots from users it follows, rather than all toots from any one server, is more scalable long-term. However, servers that don't yet follow a lot of people can often feel like ghost towns, and federation relays fix that.
