📈 The new social web has reached its next milestone: For the first time, the has over 4,000,000 users! 📈

Today, the counter at the-federation.info/ shows 4,003,742 users in the Fediverse, out of which 2,761,886 users are on , 762,367 on , and 249,904 on . Fast growing projects are (69,954) that more than tripled and (25,206) that almost doubled the number of users in the last year.


@VictorVenema You are right. The growth of the Fediverse does not outweigh the number of users becoming inactive/dormant. Thus, the number of active users is stagnant and even decreases:

Change of "active 6 months" in the last year:
: 1.36Mio -> 1.21Mio
: 1.25Mio -> 1.09Mio
: 87250 -> 69018
: 9647 -> 12563

In other words, the needs to substantially grow faster in order to also grow in terms of actually active users.


@mk @VictorVenema

Thanks. This is a bit strange.
The user numbers for the instances themselves are the same like to the-federation.info. Here the three biggest instances:

pawoo.net 636792
mastodon.social 531133
mstdn.jp 201961
all others are much smaller. Thus, 287 mio users actually cannot be correct.

Did you count the users or the statuses?
