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 I’ve never really understood stars for stuff. Not sure I have ever used them. If I like something I want to spread it


@curtismchale Agreed! But pop over to say, twitter, and it's the other way around. Likes dominate.

It's just some interesting thing I noticed. And I actually prefer it.

@curtismchale Weirder? I find myself clicking fav more than retweet over there. And boosting more here, than favorites.

I think the only conclusion we can draw is, humans are weird.
