A lot of people have been talking about how they love the topics feature of Cake. And it’s definitely an improvement over hashtags on other platforms, which invariably I forget to read because you can’t follow hashtags on most platforms.
At the same time, I don’t feel that I’m alone in wanting to follow people who are amazing conversationalists, no matter what the topic is.
What I personally loved about blogs in their heyday was the community of regular commenters on a popular blog—I often looked forward to their insights as much as the blogger’s.
So I was wondering if their was a way to “duct tape” a solution to following people on Cake.
And there is, but it’s not pretty.
If you click on a commenter’s name, you will be brought to their profile with all of their recent posts and comments. Bookmark their page and save it to a folder marked Following.
The next time you log on to Cake, open your bookmarks in seperate tabs. If your goal here is to follow 500 people, than clearly this solution won’t work. But you’re probably better off on a different platform. But to follow a half dozen to a dozen conversationalists is doable with this approach.
