📈 The new social web has reached another milestone: Mastodon passed 3 million users and PeerTube 100k users!📈
*But* please be aware: The Fediverse has to grow faster! Currently, it just keeps its level of monthly active users (#MAU) in a year-to-year comparison:
-0.2% Mastodon at currently 444,951 MAU
+2.7% Fediverse 493,924 MAU
@rochelimit That's a good question. IMHO: Yes, the Fediverse definitively needs to grow.
1/ It's good that the MAU is stable and not declining. However, it also means that atm it doesn't attract more new people than people becoming inactive. I don't know whether this is sustainable in the lon run.
2/ There are ~7.8 bn people in the world, thus, many good people who are not yet here. I'd like to see more researchers, politicians, orgs, other active people in the Fediverse.
