📈 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.
@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:
In other words, the #Fediverse needs to substantially grow faster in order to also grow in terms of actually active users.
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:
all others are much smaller. Thus, 287 mio users actually cannot be correct.
Did you count the users or the statuses?
