Mastodon, the open-source, decentralized social network, is gaining momentum. A recent network connectivity issue revealed surprising growth statistics for Mastodon.

Founder Eugen Rochko announced that Mastodon’s active monthly user count was underestimated by 407,814.

  • Reality Check: Mastodon’s registered user count has increased by a staggering 2.34 million, spread across an additional 727 servers.
  • Data Correction: The error that impacted Mastodon’s statistics page from October 2 to October 8 has been rectified, revealing that Mastodon now boasts 1.8 million active users monthly, a 5% increase, and over 10,000 servers, a 12% growth.
  • Identity Crisis: X, in the meantime, seems to be in a constant state of identity crisis. The latest controversial decision from X’s owner, Elon Musk, to remove headlines from link previews for aesthetic reasons, and the suggestion to charge users a small fee to access X, has stirred up quite a bit of controversy.
  • The Pushback: This move has led to some publishers starting to withdraw due to decreased traffic from X. The CEO of X, Linda Yaccarino, appeared to be as clueless about Musk’s plans as the rest of us when questioned in an interview.

Though smaller in comparison to X, Mastodon’s user base is experiencing consistent growth. But will it grow to scale as big as social media competitors?
