Wondering what all the Mastodon hype is about? Here are a few of the more interesting Mastodon statistics I was able to dig up. Mastodon is still very young and the media is just beginning to take notice, so many more stats are sure to surface in the coming months. Be sure to check back in the future for new stats.
Please note that some of these numbers are easier to find than others. Many of these Mastodon statistics come from the company’s own financial filings, but some are based on news reports and not official company tallies. Basically, this is the best I can find and I don’t guarantee anything to be 100% accurate.

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)
