📈 The new social web has reached its next milestone: For the first time, the #Fediverse has over 4,000,000 users! 📈
Today, the counter at https://the-federation.info/ shows 4,003,742 users in the Fediverse, out of which 2,761,886 users are on #Mastodon, 762,367 on #diaspora, and 249,904 on #Prosody. Fast growing projects are #Peertube (69,954) that more than tripled and #Pixelfed (25,206) that almost doubled the number of users in the last year.
@hamishcampbell I think the number reported by The-federation.info comprises active and inactive accounts.
This toot here should give an impression what number of users was active (in the last 6 months):
The number of active users is probably underestimated, because e.g. Peertube does not report numbers of active users and a number of Mastodon instances do not seem to disclose the timeline/active users.
