Just four days ago I pulled this data about Mastodon instance user counts.
Since then the user count of a typical instance has grown about 10%.
Ten percent more people here. In just four days.
We'll see if this wave flattens soon, or if this is just the beginning.
But no wonder it's felt quite wild here this week.
social.coop is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
