@Naeva @valgrind When I started I looked at the federated timeline (that's the feed that contains everything that is seen by your instance, in other words any post by people that others on your instance are following).
If anyone on the federated timeline said anything even remotely interesting I followed them. I then followed people whose posts were boosted by people that I was already following.
After a while the feed got too full and I started unfollowing people and now I have a very nice feed with people posting things that I enjoy reading. I saw your post because @mike boosted it.
