Hashtags are the *only* way to find people who're into the same stuff as you without having to ask folks for help. So:
1) Add hashtags to your positive public posts, and
2) When you post a hashtag, click it and boost something positive from that hashtag.
It helps get positive and interesting posts further out into the fediverse, and lets newbies find and follow people who share their interests. :)

The deep state they warned about? I'm starting to suspect it is them.
