On joining Facebook, Twitter, and Mastodon

I joined Facebook in 2007, and Twitter in 2011. On both sites, finding people and organizations to friend or follow was easy and intuitive, and I've been able to cultivate many connections on Facebook and add to my list of people and organizations to follow on Twitter so that both offer me rich interactions with people all over the world, as well as a wide range of information on my feeds. It takes years to build up such personal networks, so I don't expect my four-day-old Mastodon account to be the same yet. But so far I have found it far less intuitive to find and follow people and organizations there. (Andrew Shields, #111words, 11 November 2022)
