📈 The new social web has reached its next milestone: For the first time, the #Fediverse has over 4,000,000 users! 📈

Today, the counter at the-federation.info/ shows 4,003,742 users in the Fediverse, out of which 2,761,886 users are on #Mastodon, 762,367 on #diaspora, and 249,904 on #Prosody. Fast growing projects are #Peertube (69,954) that more than tripled and #Pixelfed (25,206) that almost doubled the number of users in the last year.

Long term _active_ growth should be considered from the perspective of publication of consistent, unique content that is attractive to those audiences.

Commercial services, including legacy proprietary publishers have always understood that uniquie content is what creates value.

A read of the profile of 'fediscience', suggests that there is: "...a new open post-publication peer review system...". It would be nice to know where is this peer review system and if 'fediscience' is being promoted (by usage of those involved in the new review system).

@VictorVenema I think the question by @education goes to you. I don't know whether you have seen his/her post, because you were not tagged.


@gerald_leppert Thanks for the heads-up. Had indeed not noticed @education's reply.

I am building this post-publication peer review system. You can find it at grassroots.is

It is not working yet, the above homepage is just to demonstrate the concept/get feedback.

Once it has participants, I will herd them to using Mastodon. Had already dreamed of adding a social network to destroy the legacy ones before I discovered Mastodon.

All peer reviews should be published using ActivityPub.
