 be your own algorithm. engage with people that comment on your notes. engage with people that post notes in your feed. use the global tab. use the conversation tab. find nostriches that are active and let them know that you're active too! boost your own notes when applicable. help nostriches find your content. rinse and repeat. proof of work goes a long way in a community that appreciates value.

 This is better than mute and gfy 😆 🤣  
▲ ▼
 good for you. 
▲ ▼
 🤲🏻❤️ Love your content,my friend!

 im just a nostrich. thank you <3

 just don't go too deep. some clients don't handle threads all that well 😂 
▲ ▼
 I am realising that the term "proof of work" is applicable to a lot of things in life. for example, governments don't prduce any value! proof of stake!! 
▲ ▼
 agree. proof of work is beyond bitcoin and can be applied to most things in life. 
▲ ▼
 Very true! On Twitter, I’ve made most friends by commenting and liking 
▲ ▼
 interacting is key on every social platform, it's just even more important and apparent here, where we don't have algos to bring content forward. 
▲ ▼
 Warpcast / Farcaster has channels. I think that can be done on #Nostr clients as a standard 🤔 
▲ ▼
 i don't know what these things are. i don't shitcoin :) nostr has channels and group chats too. it just depends on your client. 
▲ ▼
 Lol 😂 Farcaster is the Ethereum Nostr 
▲ ▼
 Well said.  
▲ ▼
 we gotta keep saying it so that new nostriches don't get lost in the void. 
▲ ▼
 I've not been on here long and can honestly say that my experience has been improved massively by people's willingness to help and engage with me, including you. So thanks 🤝 
▲ ▼
 you're welcome. you'll find that most people are kind and helpful. 1) because we don't have ads and controversial content making us angry and 2) we want nostr to succeed and love to help!

 😆 
▲ ▼
 Wen MAGA merch @vrod 
▲ ▼
 🤗 
 One MAGA Pez dispenser please.  
▲ ▼
 hilarious. though i could never wear it. maybe if it was purple. 
 I would buy this shirt as long as it includes the words "make algorithms go away." 
▲ ▼
 Buy your own algorithm? Isn't that what happens when you invest in Primal? 👀 
▲ ▼
 I honestly hope many clients allow us to buy algorithms via an algorithm store sometime later this year. 👀 
▲ ▼
 Me too, but that's not what I mean 🤣 
▲ ▼
 I know what you meant by it 🤣 
▲ ▼
 😬😝 
▲ ▼
 This is the way 👏🏻👑💜🫂🚀

 We gotta do what we gotta do 🤙🏻🫂💜

 I 100% agree. thanks for all you do for the community @derek 
▲ ▼
 you're welcome <3 i do what i do because i love this community <3 
▲ ▼
 It shows <3 
▲ ▼
 Yes 
▲ ▼
 Yas! 
▲ ▼
 hi derek 🙂 
▲ ▼
 Yo. 
▲ ▼
 Is there a way to separate followed tags from followed accounts? I would like to follow a bunch of tags to make my own feed but also don't want to drown out the people I specifically want to follow from my home feed, 
▲ ▼
 This is client dependent. Some allow following or hashtags and allow them to be in a separate feed. 
▲ ▼
 Interesting note. You outlined the Nostr, protocol, and incentive structure in the clearest way I've seen to date. 🤨 
▲ ▼
 glad to be of service. 
▲ ▼
 100%

 its social media. not algorithm media. be social 
▲ ▼
 Do people boost their own notes? Does that help visibility? 
▲ ▼
 Yes. You need to absolutely do this if you have a banger of a note that you feel needs more eyeballs. Algos aren't going to do the heavy lifting for you. Work hard. 
▲ ▼
 Huh, the more you know! Looks like I don’t have a button to do this on Damus 
▲ ▼
 Hmm. I don't have an iPhone so I can't confirm this. I always assumed you could. I'm sure a Damus user will comment here. 
▲ ▼
 Until today I can’t use Damus. Happily there is others nostr clients  
▲ ▼
 @jb55 can you boost your own notes on Damus? 
▲ ▼
 Yup! You can repost your own notes on damus if that’s what you mean? 
▲ ▼
 Yes, that's what I mean. Thanks V! 🫂💜 There you go @aidan 🔥
