Mastodon Statistics and Facts 2022

Here are a few of the most interesting Mastodon statistics and facts I was able to dig up including user counts. As always, be sure to check back in the future as I will be updating this post as new and updated stats become available.

What is Mastodon?

Mastodon is a free, open-source social network. A decentralized alternative to commercial platforms, it avoids the risks of a single company monopolizing your communication. Pick a server that you trust — whichever you choose, you can interact with everyone else. Anyone can run their own Mastodon instance and participate in the social network seamlessly. (source)

Mastodon Facts

Here is pretty much everything you ever wanted to know about Mastodon.

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%.
