A couple more tips for everybody:
* Make sure to @ mention the people you're talking to, especially in comments. This is the only way they'll know that you're talking back to them, unless they're the original poster.
* DON'T change your @ username right now. You'll create dead links and lose a lot of connection to your old content. We're working on a fix for this, but do it at your own peril for now.
* Discover/Search is being fairly flaky, but type slow and wait for it to return with results. The best way to find your friends right now is to look through your friends' Following/Followers lists and fan out from there. Also, feel free to post your Ello @ username elsewhere to let your peeps know where you are. Get creative with your Ello use. This is not the network you've used in the past. It's entirely new and will be shaped based upon on how we all use it
