For people saying “but it’s harder for things to go viral here”.
A few days ago if I saw something boosted (reshared) 50 times, that was a lot. Now I’m regularly seeing things--news, jokes, cartoons---boosted over 100 times. And some in the thousands.
To me that’s a measure of the health of the social graph. People are connecting. Their networks are overlapping. They aren’t in a bubble of their current instance. This is great news for the long term success.
