Need Help Getting Started With SayScape?
Finding Other Users
When you first created your account you might be thinking "Who else is on here?" or "How do I find other people with similar interests?"
SayScape works similar to other platforms, you see content created by people you follow.
The big difference, SayScape do not push content into your feed so it will be empty until you follow users. You will only see things that YOU wish to see. We believe your feed should belong to you.
Here are a few ways to do just that:
Check the Trending feed found in the main menu on the left side. Here you will see all post from all users on SayScape in order based on most interactions during the selected time frame.
Use the Search feature to search directly for users (by display name or username). You can also search all posts that contain a specific keyword, phrase or hashtag that correlates with your interests.
Recommended Follows is located in the left menu will give you a list of users (completely random) that you can look through. Refresh the list to get a new group of users.
