I find it very interesting that people on Mastodon seem to prefer showing their support by boosting something rather than favoring it.

I'm not sure what that says about us. Maybe that sharing really is caring.

Either way, I'm here for it. Keep up those boosts all you lovely people.

@KARiley40 Semantics vary. Many people use Favorites as some sort of bookmarking (for instance "seems interesting, will read it later").

So, it is hard to draw conclusions about what they meant to say.


@bortzmeyer Yep, I do that too! But I do find that, least watching things, that there seems to be more boosts on things than favs... as compared to say, twitter, which goes the other way.

I can't say why it's going on, just a general observation from my end.
