The number of active users on the Rumble platform has remained on a steady rise. According to a statement made by CEO Chris Pavlovski, the number of active users on the Rumble platform has risen rapidly from 1 million users last summer to about 30 million active users currently. It is worth mentioning that the user statistics of Rumble began its tremendous rise in 2020 after YouTube and other social media companies permanently banned former President Trump from their platforms following the Capitol riot in January.
At the beginning of November 2020, Rumble had 80 million users, and 72% of their referrals came from Parler. According to the founder of Rumble, Chris Pavlovski, Rumble has continued to grow 10% every month and is seeing 30 million monthly users, up from 800,000 in August of the previous year.
The platform Rumble’s monthly user count has experienced rapid growth since July 2020, from 1.6 million monthly users to 31.9 million by the end of the first quarter of 2021. Rumble’s average monthly users have skyrocketed from 1.6 million in the third quarter of 2020, during the 2020 election, to 31.9 million as of the end of the 2021 first quarter.

What is Rumble?
Launched in 2013 by Chris Pavlovski, a technology entrepreneur from Canada, Rumble is an online video-sharing platform that is based in Toronto, Canada. The video platform is dubbed an alternative to YouTube as it allows users to easily host, distribute, and monetize their content. Thanks to its loose restriction, users can freely express themselves and reach their followers without restriction.

Rumble, a Toronto-based video-sharing platform that was developed in 2013. According to CEO Chris Pavlovski, Rumble was built on the belief that small creators should be given equal opportunity to freely express themselves, reach their followers without restriction, and be given the same access to tools that large creators have.
While YouTube only shares 10 to 15% of ad revenue with users, Rumble shares up to 60% of advert revenue with its users. Other options include giving creators the ability to waive rights to their content in exchange for a lump sum of money and profit sharing through Rumble’s other partners. Rumble also has a simpler video recommendation algorithm than YouTube. YouTube recommends videos to users based primarily on previously watched videos. At the same time, Rumble only displays videos in chronological order of creators that a user is following, allowing users to select the content they want to consume without influence.
As calls for increased content moderation intensify, big tech censorship shows no signs of slowing down in the future. Will demand for an unmoderated platform like Rumble continue to surge?
