I joined the Fediverse when I was in middle school. I first started hosting a Mastodon instance when in high school.

This made me wonder the age of others when they first joined this network.

So here's a poll:

How old were you all when you first joined the ?


The poll ended. Thank you to everyone who participated. The results are enlightening. The vast majority of Fediverse users joined when they were 20-39 (no surprise there). There are quite a bit of high schoolers, and a couple of those who joined in middle school.

@josias bummer, I didn't see the poll, and could have provided some balance to the results LOL. (I joined when I was 63.) What were the others that were older?

@josias You didn't mention the second most representative group. It seems that the Fediverse is chosen by more mature people mainly! That must mean something! 😉

@joaopinheiro Absolutely. 😃

40+ is an incredibly large age range, so it's interesting that 20-39 is more represented. Meaning the age demographic still tends younger.

Um... I don't know about that... 🤔

Not sure you can say "vast majority of Fediverse users".

"Your crowd" and within 3 or 4 degrees of followers, maybe. And then maybe a few more from outside your circle of followers. 🤷‍♀️

Can't say it was a good sampling of the #Fediverse. ☝️🤓 #statistics #data
