Finding people to follow on the fediverse (e.g. Mastodon/Pleroma) is simple!
1. Start by checking the timeline for your local instance. See an interesting post? check the author's timeline. Are they or their posts interesting? Follow them.
2. Check their boosts and give their authors the same treatment.
3. Rinse and repeat. 🔄
Is your local instance too quiet? Try the federated timeline, but brace for noise!
@polychrome I check tags I'm interested in, too. Mastodon's web interface will let you pin searches for tags as a custom column, and you can even add extra tags to it, so I have a column that has hashtag introductions, hashtag startrek, hashtag stevenuniverse, etc. Really useful!
Cybrespace is an instance of Mastodon, a social network based on open web protocols and free, open-source software. It is decentralized like e-mail.
