    Reminder: this is a social media feature to try to keep you on the platform. It’s okay to take a break, or just block the feature if it causes you anxiety.

      Sure, but I really like to look at this when I’m deciding on wether an open source project is worth to use, if you can see that the author is relatively active.

        A user’s activity on the Microsoft GitHub social media network/code forge is not a good indicator of a user’s activity in open source. There are gobs of free alternative forges, self-hosting, mailing lists, committing under different accounts. It’s as grain-of-salt worthy as how my ‘stars’ a project has for code quality.
