I completely agree with both Robencom and Ben! I think it's less important about how many people you follow. As my father likes to say often, "Quality over quantity." It's your actions on the platform that really mean the most! Commenting, interacting with other Dev.to members, sharing stories/posts, and helping people.
Even if you're doing that for 10 people instead of 100, or 200, or 300... what matters is the effort and time you've put into those things than how many people.
That being said, I commend you for thinking about how you can better connect with others on here! It's what makes this platform so great. :)
