masto/fedi advice for artists 

one thing that is different here than commercial places you might be used to is that metrics doesn't matter. interactions do.

boost other people's work (or reply to them) engage in meaningful conversations.

the less you treat this place as a broadcast medium and more as a communication platform, the more you will enjoy the fediverse.

hope this helps

Also, for many artists a 👏 👏 👏 or 😍 😍 😍 toot is often more rewarding than a trivial click on a ⭐

And of course it doesn't imply a "I'm happy if you follow me".

@GustavinoBevilacqua @eylul these are important points. I cannot stress enough how much I appreciate the civil conversational vibe of fediverse/mastodon and how different that is from birdsite and other surveillance tracking algorithmic social media. I appreciate every post that brings attention to behaviour (and tools) that makes this space different.

I saw a few folk who does this recently and while I am trying to limit the meta I posts I think this is important to point out to win these artists.

a <certain> commercial photo sharing platform especially caused some pretty exhausting social media practices to be the norm and required. :)

I think even better than just emoticons a genuine comment that says why somebody liked a work or asks about process. or mention your work because they just liked it. It is the type of interaction that I rarely see and makes fediverse so much more rewarding.

Or even a shout-out to all the followers, specially if using a different main language instance (like I see something nice on a English of French or whatever instance and I translate it to suggest the toot to all my Italian followers).
