Post Activity in Mastodon - to show or not to show

For the most part I appreciate the design decision that the #mastodon developers made to not show reply/boost/fave numbers on the feed lists, because it puts more focus on the content and less on gaming an algorithm for popularity or “engagement”.

but I also realize that this makes it harder to know if there are responses! For example, this post by Jun on #playviscious actually has an interesting thread that I’m learning from, but nothing in the UI signifies that there is more content to find connected to the post.

I wonder if there could be an additional affordance in the #UI that there are replies (boosts and faves not so much)?

I would love @twitter to provide an optional “follow message” where you could tell the person you’re following, why. #inquiringminds

Yes, of course I’ll stand where I live, and yeah, sometimes where I work too, but I can stand other places too, right? #ArguingWithSongs
