Mastodon has a discovery problem.

There, I said it.

I really like it here and appreciate that the level of discourse is better than Twitter, but 2 problems:

- it feels like I'm not finding new voices frequently at all
- there's no sense of zeitgeist here

Different problems, but I think both related to the lack of algorithms.


You are not wrong. Here we need to be more proactive to find new voices, instead of passively finding them there. And it can be a good thing or a bad thing. Certainly room for improvement. Maybe the #explore feature will help.

zeitgeist might come with time, as it does.
