Discovery on Ello appears to be rudimentary right now. This could be a
good or a bad thing depending on whether or not you wish to expand your
social network, or simply have a way to facilitate your existing one.
One thing I liked when I joined Twitter (I was very late to the
bandwagon) was that it constantly suggested people to me who I actually
knew, but didn't know their Twitter names.
Being able to do that
effectively though might go against their mantra; it kinda works by
mining your data! Then again, I probably don't want to know just how much information Twitter collects on me. There's a reason I'm not on Facebook or Tumblr...
