I greatly dislike how Mastodon users never like/favorite posts “because it doesn’t do anything for the algorithm.” I’ll see posts with hundreds of reblogs/retoots and not a single favorite. I never ‘like’ content for any algorithm, I ‘like’ it so the OP knows I enjoyed the post. It’s still a meaningful way to support content even if it doesn’t feed the algorithm.

Anyways, I hope Mastodon becomes a better experience, since a certain egomaniac billionaire has killed the bird app.

@its_sedimentary Absolutely agree. Fortunately, my experience is a bit different: quite a lot of Mastodon users do seem to use the favorite feature.
