For every lemmy ‘sub’ there’s like 1 or 2 users maybe 25 at most.
Am i doing something wrong?
Just go with the flow, eventually there will be an acceptable amount of active users. For now, your active participation is appreciated.
Your right. I’m being impatient. Thank you man
no the site just doesn’t have that many users
Man that sucks :(
Let’s make an effort to migrate users from Reddit to Lemmy. Recently, Reddit’s user experience have been deteriorating and it’s extremely slow to use
No to mention the big increase in censure.
Oh yea for sure
Yea I got banned from there that’s how I got here
I came over from Reddit a couple of weeks ago, haven’t logged into it since.
What you say is true; what drove me away ultimately were bad interactions with fascist (in the technical sense, not popular sense) mods.
How active are you on lemmy? What new content do you look at?
Not very (as you can tell from the delay in my reply). I hang out in Mastodon, mostly. But I’m a responder, not a poster, so my interactions are limited by three amount of content I have to react to.
But that’s ok. I don’t need a huge social media time sink in my life.
I’m not subscribed to much yet. I browse the general feed; I tend to add stuff organically, rather than go searching for it.
How is mastodon?
I don’t know if it’s just older, but there’s a lot more traffic on Mastodon. Being a Twitter clone, it’s more light material; memes, brief thoughts. People do have conversations, but nothing on the level or depth of Reddit.
There’s stuff I’ve posted on Reddit I wouldn’t have posted on Mastodon, if only because of the character limit. But it’s great for little one-offs, pictures, etc.
I don’t understand why it was said Mastodon and Lemmy are not compatible; I’m using Friendica, Pixelfed, and Mastodon at the same time in Fedilab – it’d be great to use the same tool to access Lemmy.
I spend most of my time in Mastodon, popping into Lemmy occasionally to see what’s up. That’s probably more because there’s more content at the moment on Mastodon.
It takes a long time for sites to build up a large userbase, especially when there isn’t much to differentiate it from close competitors. Lemmy from your average user’s perspective is Reddit but with no ads and less content. Measure that against Reddit and your average community is going to struggle to reach the size of its Reddit counterpart. Unless, of course, its Reddit counterpart got the banhammer.
the ui/ux needs work, most people don’t care about privacy, it’s mostly used by tech people and link aggregators in general tend to have very niche userbases
