Today in #FediTips to birdsite settlers: Please refrain from attention hacks such as regularly boosting/reboosting your own toots. Seriously.

Over here, you are not trying to trick the Algorithm into thinking your posts are interesting and should be shown to someone. Over here, the people who are interested in what you have to say follow you and they are guaranteed to see your post in their timeline. Repeating that same post in their timelime is, in fact, a pretty predictable way to loose followers or end up on ignore lists.

Be person, not a SEO consultant.



@Retrograde this is not true, I boost myself all the time, you should do it too! Being your own algorithm is good actually!
