📈 The new social web has reached another milestone: Mastodon passed 3 million users and PeerTube 100k users!📈

Today, the counter at the-federation.info/ shows 3,019,861 #Mastodon and #118,877 #PeerTube users.
#Fediverse (#ActivityPub): 3,340,712
Fediverse (total): 4,367,971

*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


Congrats for reaching the milestone, keep going for the future!

@christian_zerfass @gerald_leppert Does the Fediverse 'need' to grow? Isn't Mastodon sustainable already, since it doesn't rely on VC funding on the promise of future profits? I really can't follow any more good people ... ;)

@rochelimit @gerald_leppert

Fair enough 😂 so it shall just absorb all the good people which haven't arrived yet 🙂

I can only usefully follow a slightly dynamic list of 60-70 people. Sometimes I need to prune to get the number down low enough to follow someone new. People moving on, quitting or w/e allow this to happen in a nice way.
