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 #Fediverse?


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.


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 . ☝️🤓
