I really wish that academic studies on Mastodon like this were not funded by UK's Orwellian programs on Defence and Security:
Anyhow, the paper contains useful statists. For example, it points out that Amazon 🤮 hosts more than 30 percent of the Mastodon users.
@iday Also: a mention to Hubzilla and PeerTube. I used Friendica and then Hubzilla for a few years before switching to Mastodon.
The social network of the future: No ads, no corporate surveillance, ethical design, and decentralization! Own your data with Mastodon!
