Seeing about 4x increased sign up and tooting rate across the fediverse for this week
4X MULTIPLIER! FRENZY!
@Gargron QUAD DAMAGE!
@Gargron what did birdsite do now
I'm fed up of a website where Nazis can speak their hatred freely* but people can't define themselves as "queer" anymore.
*except in France and Germany for legal reasons
@Gargron How do you tend to get the word out about Mastodon? I still talk to friends and family regularly about Mastodon, and most have never even heard of it. That's the main issue I think: ignorance of our existence.
@Gargron is there a "who to follow" engine?
@Gargron The "Cambridge Analytica-effect" 🤔
@eloisa @Gargron Yeah, but we still have a lot to do. Most of my friends still use Facebook Messenger to chat with each other. Most of those who don't use FB Messenger end up using WhatsApp (which is not that much better). I managed to convince some friends and co-workers to use Telegram, and my wife uses Signal... So it's a very fragmented ecosystem, for now.
But I do when it pertains to Mastodon, Diaspora & alike.
I'm still feeling burned out from the early days of Diaspora & how all my efforts to bring ppl were pretty much useless.
I was way better off with just meeting new people in (t)here, than bringing my own.
I'd like this to change, though, and after 6 years I'm finally having some hope again. :,)
@Gargron Whoa! :O Exciting!
@Gargron Is that all? 😉👍🏻
@Gargron a lot of signups i saw. Hope they stick around! 10.000 active on Mastodon.social would be nice :)
@gargron What's your workflow for monitoring those statistics? I mean, is there a data visualization page that could show me the same information?
@Gargron why? Do you have any idea? Facebook drama?
@Gargron I was on other servers but the post today prompted me to get on .social for the first time!
@Gargron why not fb effect
