Platform diversityThe number of different platforms I'm subscribed to went down from 67 to 45. I combed all my subscriptions and removed those that where unreachable or for whom the last post was much too old to be considered active. Note that I had not checked the same thing last year, meaning that this figure's decrease may not be relevant to demonstrate the activity (or lack there of) of the GNU Social community as a whole.
Single user instance vs. multiple user instance.I have seen a shift from single user owned instances to multiple-users instances. We'll see that later but Quitter is one of the main actor for this shift.Single users went from 58 users to 35 (-39,6%) (and users hosted on multi-users instances went from 42 to 81 (+92.8%)
Distribution of usersAmong the instances from which i follow more than one user there are some changes:
- Quitter is still leading the way but with a larger margin than last year.
- There are 5 new players in my list (skilledtest, Loadaverage, mayfirst, ourcoffs and morphtown)
And I got rid of identi.ca !!
