Since everyone is asking, I'll answer here and hope people can see this:
- Node colors mean communities found with the modularity measure (e.g. blue instances are mostly japanese ones)
- Node sizes mean number of connections, not number of users
@fdavidcl does it use the number of connected instances?
@fdavidcl and what are the colors?
@angristan Apparent communities according to the modularity measure
@angristan Nope, it's finding individual connections between instances by counting users from one instance following those from another (only a small sample of users though, the fediverse is too big for that)
@fdavidcl oh interesting
@fdavidcl what's up with the different colors?
@brainblasted They're apparent communities computed via modularity class in Gephi
@fdavidcl 1) its hilarious how many versions of the word mastodon are in this graph
2) is size based on number of connections or number of users?
@fdavidcl where are the largest instances?
@fdavidcl what do the colors mean?
@fdavidcl oops sorry i found it
@fdavidcl quite a bit less centralized than I expected (if the sizes are to scale)
@fdavidcl What do the colors indicate?
@fdavidcl it's impressive.😱 u did a good work!
@fdavidcl hey we’re in there!
@fdavidcl How big does an instance have to be to be on that?
