Problem: It's hard to find friends, colleagues, people you know on the Fediverse
From an onboarding perspective, most people want to keep in touch with those they know, wherever it’s easiest. Currently it's almost impossible to find those you know on the Fediverse. This is important because:
- A social app that doesn't provide a rich enough social experience will have fewer repeat visitors, with the difference going back to known alternatives.
- Users must know that outside channels are required to establish contact, then use those outside channels to share links to get connected in the Fediverse
- Benefits of unmade connection are denied, including discovering shared interests, planning online/in-person events, shared experiences and cooperation to problems.
