Yup, it is built on ActivityPub and you can follow people between platforms if you wanted to. It is closer in experience to Mastodon in terms of microblogging feeds as opposed to forum posts like Lemmy. But, an interesting & modern interface. Personally, I still spend most of my time on Mastodon but I like to experiment with the different Fediverse implementations.
I use the FediBuzz Relay to push some hashtag-specific content to my instance. When you set that up, FediBuzz creates a “user” that boosts anything with that hashtag. For example, one of the hashtags I want it to help look for is #HoosierMast. It created @email@example.com. So, maybe that is a work-around? However, I have no idea how to then take that Mastodon username and add it to your follows on Lemmy!
