Is Django still widely used by software developers?

I'm using Django for some work, and find it very useful in general. However, something I can't quite figure out is how popular it is. I know that there are a few high profile websites that use it, but it's not clear to me whether it is still a vibrant community or not.
Most of the developers I know, use PHP or Ruby, but I find Django (specifically GeoDjango) to be extremely useful for my work. When I go to read StackOverflow questions, or seek code examples online the total number seems much lower than I would expect. For example, I want to learn how to handle user authentication with 3rd party services. I've found a few libraries for doing this, but not a large number of examples using these libraries. I was not sure if I'm searching for the wrong terms of whether the community has always been quite small.
Hence my question - is the framework still living and healthy, or is it slowly dying off?
