How to Find People With Similar Interests If someone posts something of interest, click on their profile and see who they follow. After a while you will find many people with similar interests. After following someone, click on the star next to the follow button to add them to your shortcuts. Look through the people I'm following. You'll see some familiar names.

Create a list (click List in left home panel) and name it by category, add multiple members in the list. When you open the list, the newest posts from the members will populate the list.

Groups Search through the categories of groups to find ones that interest you. Give the page a bit of time to refresh Many groups were set to private to avoid spam. Click on the Request to Join and they will let you in After joining a group, click the star next to Member button to add to your shortcuts. Post in groups, interact and follow other people, create great content, and you can build up a following pretty quickly.
