The thing is, fandom is literally so huge these days I wouldn't want to use a centralized platform that puts me in touch with Every Single Fan Ever. Not that my fandom experience was ever truly centralized, since all through the reign of LJ I was in fandoms with virtually no presence on LJ, but vibrant messageboards. But anyway, these days fans of anything at all are so easy to find I suffer from a kind of glut and have to back off to somewhere smaller and more manageable. Like living in a city with hundreds of thousands of people, and cutivating my own front stoop. One of my fandoms is a Canadian show that will absolutely break the bank if it gets a million viewers, and I can find fandom for it.

On Tumblr, I tend to post about a fandom and include it in that fandom's tag, then follow the replies and retags to my post and find people to follow that way. If I want to find something (like fandom-specific icons, which are scarce as hen's teeth thanks to the lack of a standard platform icon size for people to specifically create for, the one thing I really miss LJ about) I'll use the site search to find fandom-specific curated blogs that basically wade through the fandom tag and reblog the good stuff, like garbage pickers going through junkyards for the gems.
