Mastodon is an open-source, decentralized social media platform that was launched in 2016. Unlike centralized social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter, Mastodon operates on a decentralized network of servers, each managed by different communities or individuals.

Mastodon’s decentralized architecture means that users can create their own “instances,” which are servers that are part of the wider Mastodon network but have their own rules and user communities. Each instance is independently run, but they are connected to each other and users can interact with other users across different instances.

Mastodon’s interface is similar to other social media platforms, with features such as timelines, posts, likes, and follows. However, it also has unique features, such as the ability to post longer messages, the option to create polls, and a built-in content warning system that allows users to hide sensitive content behind a warning.

Mastodon has gained popularity among those who value privacy and freedom of expression, as well as those who are disillusioned with the centralized and commercial nature of traditional social media platforms.

Mastodon Facts

Please note that some of these numbers are easier to find than others. A few of these Mastodon statistics come from their own reports, but some are based on news reports and not official company tallies. No information contained on DMR should be relied upon to make investment decisions. Basically, this is the best I can find and I don’t guarantee anything to be 100%.
