Elon Musk drove more than a million people to Mastodon – but many aren’t sticking around: More than 130,000 people were joining the new independent social media network a day in November. So why hasn’t it taken off?

diaspora* is still a thing, and what you describe looks like its concept of "aspect", which was developed before google+ " circles". It is AGPL, you're welcome to contribute or fork it. https://github.com/diaspora/diaspora

to be fair, its not Mastodon, its the #Fediverse. Mastodon is arguably the least rich platfrom on the 'verse. IMHO Friendica is where its at, and you can still communicate with all the twitter refugees on Mastodon, as well as meater content on services likeDiaspora*, not to mention full integration with Lemmy (which works fairly similar to Reddit) while Masto you can see lemmy posts and replies without having to leave your preferred application or webpage, but you can only reply, you can post your own from a Mastodon account.

I think that is what Diaspora aimed for. Although they made it WAY too complicated. Hasn't even reached a million active accounts.

I miss having users

Old-school bbs seem pretty dead and gone, although I was looking at Discourse as a possible modern revival-in-spirit. Haven't dug deep into it yet but lately I keep stumbling onto instances of it in the wild.

Building a forum for software sharing, like https://github.com/discourse/discourse, is a workaround. But anybody knows self-hosted app store options?

I came up with a better way to communicate with users
2 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 22 Sep 2022
I like the idea but I am not sure if a discord server / whatsapp will get indexed by Google? If not you might loose out on getting free traffic. You might just consider a good old forum, e.g. discourse  which is pretty easy to implement and what we use .
