Hello everyone who is new to Mastodon! Make sure you try and find some folks to follow who have been here for a long time. Don't make the mistake of just following folks joining right now or those you know from other places. Because many of these will leave soon, making you think this place is dead when in reality it's buzzing with activity. I've seen it happen too often with new social services and sites.
@LukasRos Ok but how to find?
@hinterwaeldler It's good to start with the users instance admins boost a lot, then go through the people they follow / boost and pick the ones you like
@hinterwaeldler Check out the public timeline (local or federated) or search for hashtags. If you see something interesting just follow them. (You can still always unfollow later.)
@LukasRos Leaving Mastodon nowadays is not easy for most people, I suppose. 😅
@LukasRos ok i followed you, is this a reply to u?
@garethfenley Yes, got your reply, so it worked!
@LukasRos Are there any users you could tag for me to follow? I just joined, and am scrolling the federated TL, but the "mute bots":"follow cool folks" ratio is not where I'd like it to be!
@LukasRos Thanks for your info lucas really appreciated !
@LukasRos why not provide us with a list of interesting people?
@xvilo I feel it's kind of difficult to make suggestions because I have no way to know what you're interested in. Right now there's no general "must-follow"-person on my mind but I'll think about it.
@LukasRos I do like a lot, what are some people here that you like? And why?
