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!

Do you miss your friends on other social networks?
Don't fret! Invite them to join!
Under settings is a tab that allows you to create invitation links that you can send to friends, compadres, associates, and contemporaries. The limit and expiration options are available so that the same invite doesn't get used more than intended.
Give it a try!
Although we're still a small instance, please consider adding yourself to the directory so that both existing and new users can discover you via your interests
