For your information: This is the 2021 poll. I ran the same poll exactly one year ago:

6th of March 2020:

I decided to make only minor adjustments compared to the previous year's version, in order to allow for some comparability between the years.

@gerald_leppert "region" word is missing in some translations. Some people out of continents may prevent from voting, yeah we are on islands.


Thanks, unfortunately there was no space left (max. 500 characters) to add "region" in all languages. In the question I mean "geo-political continent", which is the same as "region".

@gerald_leppert @204504bySE I think you should use "region" for damn political correctness even more so, if you use continent as for geo-political continent.

@gerald_leppert it kinda makes me happy to see that Esperanto is also in the translations :blobaww:

@gerald_leppert you know you'll never reach much people, and since you're in Germany, it's quite obvious that you may receive a majority of european views and hence european answer...
Do you?
So what's the point with this question ?

@gerald_leppert danke sehr ! Ich verstehe jetzt aber weniger wie Mastodon und das Fedivers funktionieren.
1. Sie haben viel mehr Reichbreite geschafft, als was ich als möglich hälte,
2. Sie kündigen fast 300 boost an wo meine Sicht auf Ihren Post nur 15 gibt !

Die Föderation von Mastodon-Instanzen / ActivityPub-Dienste hat einen Einfluss auf die Durchführung von Umfragen. Soweit ich dies beurteilen kann, steigt die Reichweite dann, wenn jemand von einer anderen Instanz den Beitrag teilt, er erscheint dann auch in der dortigen lokalen Zeitleiste. Hier einige Reflektionen zur Repräsentativität:

Von meinem Profil aus sehe ich aktuell 560 Personen, die teilgenommen haben. Der Beitrag wurde bislang 123x geteilt.

@gerald_leppert ich ich liege auf ASIEN Kontinent und ich komme aus Punjab.

@gerald_leppert je suis a HongKong, en Asie, mais Francais d'origine (si c'est bien la question)

Je vous remercie. Je pense que la réponse est "Asie" puisque c'est là que vous êtes.

@gerald_leppert So 59% of mastodon users are from Europe? I didnt expect that.

@gerald_leppert Nice example for eurocentric scientific bias. Asia and Australia are thrown together with their huge number of people. There is a valuable debate, whether the subcontinent India is "Asia" (as labeled by europeans).
Also, there is not a single African language represented, one would at least expect Swahili. Hindi is represented, however Urdu is missing. I am not talking about languages with a couple of speakers

@carl Thanks for your message. This is by no means a scientific poll. Mastodon is limited to 4 answer categories and text to 500 characters. Please also see here some other methodological reflections: BTW, Swahili is among the languages.

I decided for only minor adjustments compared to the 2020 poll, to allow for some comparability. Before that poll, I expected Europe to have the largest user base (that's why separate), but I was surprised that Africa was just a 2%.

@gerald_leppert Parolante pri la afiŝitaj lingvoj, dankon pro inkludi Esperanton 😊

@gerald_leppert it's nice to see a European majority on a social network, especially here on a open source social network.
It gives me hope that Europe has not fully fallen yet when it comes to the past age, the digital age.

Melde dich an, um an der Konversation teilzuhaben ist eine Mastodon-Instanz für Bonn und alle, die Bonn mögen.
