It’s that time of year again…Bridgy stats update! Top line numbers: 6471 accounts, 28M silo responses, 4.7M links, 2.3M webmentions sent, 99k posts published, 102k blog posts processed, 16k blog webmentions received.
It’s been a year since I last looked at Bridgy usage stats, so here’s an update! The most noticeable event since last year is that Instagram finally blocked our server side scraping for good. We quickly launched a browser extension for both Instagram and Facebook, which is working well, but meant we had start to […]
Another year down, another update on Bridgy‘s usage stats! We first announced these during State of the Indieweb at IndieWebCamp West 2020, then posted them here for posterity. The most noticeable part of last year’s stats was losing Facebook and Google+. We made up for that this year by adding three new silos: Mastodon, Meetup, […]
It’s that time of year again! No, not awards season…Bridgy stats time! Looking at the graphs, the elephant in the room is clearly the Facebook shutdown. It was Bridgy’s second largest silo, numbering 1477 users when we were forced to disable it on August 1. Bittersweet. On the plus side, I rearchitected in March and […]
A new year means new Bridgy stats. Perfect timing, too, since we’re just about to hit 1 million webmentions! Let’s go to the numbers. Since launch in December 2013: 4300 users, 940k webmentions sent successfully to >1500 unique domains, 9.5M responses handled (likes, comments etc), 26K POSSEs published, total cost ~$.02/user/month (up from ~$.01 18 […]
Another IndieWebCamp means another Bridgy stats update! Top line numbers: 3K users, 500K webmentions sent successfully to 1K unique domains, 4M responses handled (likes, comments etc), 13K POSSEs published, total cost ~$.01/user/month. Data, methodology, previously, previously. Also on IndieNews.
It’s been over a year since I last compiled usage statistics for Bridgy, our little IndieWeb side project, and IndieWebCamp SF last week was good motivation to update them. Here they are! The patterns are broadly the same as last year, so I won’t belabor the obvious. A few high level thoughts: I think user […]
Today marks 10 years to the day since I first launched Bridgy, my little IndieWeb side project to connect social networks and personal websites. Happy Birthday, Bridgy! I’ve always loved the internet, but I’m not a Very Online person, exactly. I don’t really hang out there. I didn’t fall in love with the people, or […]
Bridgy Publish launched four years ago with the ability to create posts, RSVPs, comments, and likes on Facebook and other silos. It’s created over 30k silo posts since then (details), 7k on Facebook specifically. After the Cambridge Analytica scandal broke, Facebook started limiting its API in a number of ways. Notably, it disabled RSVPing yesterday, […]
Bridgy, my little IndieWeb side project, hit a milestone a couple days ago: 1000 users! Congratulations Brett Glisson, you win the prize! 1000 isn’t a big number. We’re a long way from viral marketing, growth hacking, and customer acquisition tracking, and that’s fine with me. I built Bridgy to scratch my own itch, in fine […]
