"Facebook is more than willing to sell visibility into people’s lives, unless it’s to tell people about how their data is being used."

Facebook plans to create an Instagram for kids under 13 & privacy advocates are rightfully concerned.

"IG relies on extensive data collection, maximising time on devices, promoting a culture of over-sharing... certainly not appropriate for 7-yr olds."

I got vaccinated few days ago and since then this is growing on my arm. Damn it.

Terribly annoying. In The Netherlands there was no common word for 'vidcall' and now everyone is using 'zoom'.

People of NL and elsewhere, "zoom" is what a camera does, and otherwise it is a freaking brandname of a unicorn big tech corp.

Unfortunately its too late. Same as with 'google'. Tbh, competitors don't make things easy here: "I ducked it for you" or "Just duckduck it, man" .. meh.

Dear #fediverse and especially #foss and #activitypub tech enthusiasts amongst you ..

At #SocialHub we're preparing a great event in the form of two webinars and a workshop in April, for representatives of the European Commission.

The topics are #ActivityPub #Interoperability and #FediverseFutures within the EU.

Interest for the event came from EC itself, who via @NGIZero - funder of many great AP projects - approached SocialHub to organize.

You can help prepare and certainly join the Event!

Remember, there is a generation that don't see nothing wrong here.

Boost if you get it ;)

The #GDPR must be enforced to keep it that way. Because our data is not an industrial commodity!
