hoo boy... if anyone has suggestions on how to find cool people in the big wide fediverse (I know there’s tons out there!), pls send suggestions my way

@piper I've usually ended up finding people because they got retooted by folks I already follow. It builds slowly, but I think that's kind of nice.

Meanwhile, you can always check the local and federated timelines if your timeline is a little quiet. (The federated timeline is usually pretty noisy.) 😁

@darth_mall @piper Yeah, it feels much more organic. Like how you'd run into someone at a party etc.

Rather than an algorithm serving me people

@piper I've found that it takes time, but is fairly organic. I've found, and been found, by using hashtags around and and a few other topics.

@piper look around in tags you're interested in, check instances that have interesting content, that's basically it.
