  • I use filters on Lemmy and Mastadon to remove content I’m not interested in. You’ll want to keep updating these. Trust me within a few weeks you won’t have to anymore.

    They actually happen to be exclusively US based topics. Politics seems to be like a popular sport over there, but it’s super boring with just two parties. Then you have famous people who just don’t interest me. These topics just don’t add anything, are repetitive, and a waste of valuable real estate 🧠

    The communities and people you follow obviously matter a lot too, but at least this will clean up your All or Exploration tabs.

    Oh, and, I also ban/mute people who are overly political or just straight up annoy me. It’s not like they’re ever going to share anything I want to know about.

    Oh, and, in case you didn’t know, you can also use adblockers, including ones that cover your entire home network. I honestly don’t mind a good ad once in a while if it makes my life better, by but the last ad I saw contained a guy who was peeing and it was for bottled water, eventhough there’s nothing wrong with tap water where I live.
