These articles about #Mastodon are slowly catching up to the fact that they are actually articles about the #fediverse!
It's 2 millions accounts, not 2 millions users.
Same for every other service. "Users" sounds better.
Others services give "active users" figures, with a definition of what is an "active users".
Less than 10% of mastodon accounts are really active.
Actually no single admin can provide a figure about user activity on a decentralised net service.
We have stats of active users on big instance and we can extrapolate.https://mastodon.social/api/v1/instance/activity
Meh. Also, bots everywhere.
@hawaii @Gargron @mastodonusercount crumbling i tell you
@hawaiiThe real sign that the fediverse is becoming a force to be reckoned with: spammers are starting to hit it hard.@Gargron @mastodonusercount
@hawaii hmm, according to https://fediverse.network, which actually counts this stuff, mastodon instances only have 1985885 user IDs. Did 15000 people go offline?
@hawaii @Gargron @mastodonusercount *people (let's stop referring to people as users) no disrespect meant.
The social network of the future: No ads, no corporate surveillance, ethical design, and decentralization! Own your data with Mastodon!
