Finding people to follow on the fediverse is hard, because we don't really have celebrities or influencers or companies (we very much don't _want_ to have them!).

Just pick a few random people that look cool to follow, then follow people they boost or interact with, and unfollow people you don't particularly care for.

Interact with others politely, post a little even if no one seems to be listening, and over time you get to know people. It's easier on medium-sized instances.

--- Tips to Mastodon/fediverse newbies ---

Hi, welcome! First thing you should know is, fedi is not exactly equal to Twitter - thankfully! So keep an open mind and allow yourself some time to adapt.

Don't just join the biggest instances (i.e., mastodon.social); their size creates *many* problems. But don't stress too much over picking a instance, you can easily migrate to another later. And you can follow people from any instance - it's more like e-mail or RSS than twitter in this regard.
