After a few days on micro.blog it occurred to me, I don’t have a clue who follows me. Or when someone starts following me. I know who I follow, around 136 people, most of them from micro.blog. A few from the wider Fediverse. To be honest, I don’t know what to think of this. I am so used from other silo’ed and algorithmically driven networks to seeing who follows me, if they are interesting to me to follow back. Not even the follower/following ratio, I couldn’t care about that. But just exploring and discovering fascinating stories in my followers-list. It’s something that’s missing here deliberately, and I need to get used to that.
Does that make sense? Does it feel familiar?
