    Yes but …. 250 million monthly active users to 2.5 million.

    Don’t get me wrong, dislike twitter and all that it’s become but, as with Reddit migration, these aren’t death spirals yet

      And I guess it will never have a death spiral

      But it’s good to see that Mastodon increased from 300k to 1,5M active users

        All I need is enough people on these decentralised social media platforms to keep me from feeling like I’m missing out by not being on one of the monoliths, and I’ve already got that now.

        I welcome all the new people, and am happy for them to stay and explore, but if the numbers just stayed around where they are now, well, that would be fine too.

        It’s not like we’ve got to worry about pumping the numbers for a venture exit or IPO or anything. We can just chill out and enjoy.

        I haven’t seen a social media app have a death spiral in a long time. Facebook is for old people now, I think that’s what happens. The user base ages and/or stops using the platform and more younger people turn to a new platform.

            Orkut didn’t have a death spiral, it was murdered.

            Brazilians are still angry of it’s demise.

              Nah, most people migrated to facebook overtime and when it was shutdown people barely used it anymore

                No, it was still heavily used on Brazil and India.

                We only migrated because it was shutting down.

                  As a Brazilian, this is not the perception I had. I stayed until it migrated to G+ and then shut and none of my contacts were ever online and barely any community I followed had any kind of movement, I’d say that the great majority of people had already left for Facebook

          I think the modern social media giants have become so entrenched in other parts of people’s lives that it becomes hard to quit fully. Some Facebook groups are the only way to interact with some communities and the same goes with some niche local news on Twitter or certain personalities. Businesses/brands are not keen on potentially losing eyes on them by switching platforms.

            Reading this makes me think that social media now is pretty much the yellow pages but they’ve tricked people into thinking constantly looking at businesses even though you don’t need anything is normal.

            Also the integrated login makes it very difficult to just delete those accounts. I use Facebook to log in some sites, so if I want to get rid of it I should transfers those accounts before

    Elon Musk has faced a hiccup in his drive to rebrand Twitter as X after police stopped work to remove the old name from the sign at the company’s San Francisco headquarters. On Monday, workers were seen removing the first letters of the word Twitter before the local police department stopped them from continuing the “unauthorised work,” according to an alert sent by the department. According to police, the social media firm had failed to communicate with security and the building’s owner its plans to remove the sign at the Market Street headquarters.

    Call me crazy, but this shitty article and workers being halted seems to be fabricated just to kickstart this brand name change for Elon Musk

    Remember when the mainstream media did all it could to convince us that Mastodon was a passing fad, and that it was already fading away? Yeeeeah.

          Dá sim. Só você entrar na comunidade que você quer seguir e clicar em “Subscrever”.

          Por exemplo, você pode entrar na !3dprinting@lemmy.world e se subscrever lá da mesma forma que você faria num servidor no lemmy.eco.br

          Edit:

          Uma forma de descobrir comunidades em outros servidores é usando a aba “All” (ou “Tudo”). Também pode pesquisar no link de busca

          Só verifica, porque você sempre tem que estar no domínio https://lemmy.eco.br/ para se subscrever, então sempre olhe a barra de endereços do seu navegador

    Maybe Mastodon can be renamed to Twitter?

    Because lets be real, “Mastodon” isn’t that much better of a name than “X”
