I don't know if this is a smart question to ask (I'm pretty sure it can be categorized as an offtopic)
But my question is
Is this website still used or is it dying like Facebook or some other social media?

I state that I made the profile recently, I ask because I see the old posts were full of replies, while the new ones are mostly empty.
It's just to know whether to look for a different site where to apply.
(I don't know if math.stackexchange has been replaced by some other similar site).

If so, could you recommend a more active site?
I thank whoever will answer me and I apologize in advance for the offtopic.

P.s.: I inserted some random tags otherwise it wouldn't let me publish the question.

    $\begingroup$ Seems fairly active to me - there's also Quora, also highly active, MathOverflow for research level questions, Reddit's /r/math, etc. $\endgroup$ May 7 at 17:13

    $\begingroup$ I mean, I visit here daily in my free time, looking for questions to answer (which is how I found your post), and I certainly hope many others do too! $\endgroup$ May 7 at 17:16

    $\begingroup$ @Efesto That is for questions about math se itself, like your question. Here is a more in depth guide $\endgroup$ May 7 at 17:18

    $\begingroup$ I think there is a bias: you see old posts with more activity, since search algorithms are more likely to present you with threads that have seen more activity, as they are more likely to answer your question. Also, for very new questions, people won't have had much time to look at them and think about an answer. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ You can find some basic statistics in the list of sites. I have posted some SEDE queries in this post on MathOverflow Meta: Does the number of answers really drop over years? You can run the same queries for Mathematics, such as: Number of Q/A per month, Ratio answers to questions ... $\endgroup$ May 8 at 4:03
