Threads, a new social media platform, may or may not be a huge success, as there have been other platforms that started off strong but eventually faded away. However, Threads managed to acquire 100 million users in just five days, indicating the potential for further growth. In comparison, rival platforms like Mastodon claim to have around 2 million monthly active users, while the decentralized social media protocol Nostr likely has around 500,000 to 1 million users. Bluesky, which is invite-only, had 50,000 users in April and gained at least 58,000 new sign-ups since then. While these numbers are decent for relatively successful rivals, there are even lesser-known platforms out there.
