Thanks to other social media that shall remain nameless to protect the guilty something strange happened to me on ello. I really hated that there was no like, star, or +1 button on posts.
Over time I have learned to love this. I have less connections here but they feel more powerful. In part because I can't halfass it. I mean really. If I want to say I like something I have to take the time to make a comment. Now, I love that.
It means I don't put as much up but I'm okay with that. Overall it is adding to my experience. I have to really think, is this worth one second of effort or more? If it's not worth more I can't do anything here. So I guess I am saying keep it up ello. Causing thought and requiring a little bit of effort are things that are often lost in our gimme now culture. Glad to see someone is standing up for them.
