Anyone got figures on the number of users & servers/instances for XMPP versus Matrix?

#XMPP #Matrix

It's impossible to say since both are self hostable and no one can say how many there are. For matrix list is at https://the-federation.info/protocol/matrix but the count needs to be taken with a heavy grain of salt - likely it is much larger.

Thanks for that. A nice long list of Matrix nodes. I see what you mean about big pinches of salt, the corresponding XMPP list only has two nodes:
https://the-federation.info/protocol/xmpp
That's quite some selection bias. 😉

well to be fair, the xmpp community hasn't provided a parser to scrape xmpp servers. Not intended to make xmpp look bad. Contributions welcome, would be happy to have a better list of xmpp servers 👍

Again, no criticism meant, I was meaning selection bias in a statistical sense.

There is a list of XMPP/Jabber nodes at:

I don't know how it is compiled.
