@bruja I'll say I've had nothing but great experiences with a lot of the new folks here. I found an Indian filmmaker and now we're mufos and that was exciting. Also lots of really great and funny new people to follow!

@Memeghnad @Thomas Hi! Yes, basically my account is locked so I must approve followers however most of my posts I choose to make public (See the little globe icon below, you can choose how each post is viewed. Sometimes, I make posts that are followers only, but that's pretty rare, though I lock my followers in case any not-great people and trolls try to follow me.
You can also edit default post settings in the "preferences" tab of your account.
@bruja Amen! We're still learning! 🙂
