Another thing I love about and in particular is that you don't have to feel free to like or boost or whatever your favorite folks.

If you enjoy something people say, have a conversation with them.

The boost only shares what you enjoyed with other folks.

The favorite is just saving it for later in your favorites.

Don't feel obligated to boost something to indicate to the person you liked it. If you want to just tell them you enjoy what they're saying, having a conversation!



@ozoned I don’t find that to be any different from :birdsite:, honestly. Do people really feel obligated to retweet/like things on there?

@knd775 When I first started on Mastodon I did and I catch myself doing that sometimes even now. :-)

Have to constantly remind myself that clicking that boost means I want to share it with folks, not give internet points. :-D
