I have a fair amount of experience with data visualization, analysis etc and thought it would be a fun project to try to visualize the Lemmy network, specifically which instances have strong links to one another via subscriptions from users in one to communities in the other.

How/where can I get that data?

EDIT: It sounds like many people would find this a violation of their data privacy and I simply shouldn’t do it. I had thought this kind of data was intended to be entirely accessible by design, but I learned something new!

    I think this is fine - people I’ve seen who objected to this kind of project were more about their account being indexed. Projects like respective size of instances were always fine
