What do we want? Decentralised, non-siloed social media with open standards! When do we want it? Soon!

and I

Just quit these cesspits

FB free for some years now and I don't regret it one bit. I still have a social life, I still talk to my friends and family, despite living abroad. I may not see what that long lost collage pal is up to but if we meet we have something to talk about. It just felt FB was an evil tamagotchi sucking up time just to make me feel bad.

FB and co are just using you and getting rich by selling you down the river, just give these jokers the finger and quit.

Shameless Facebook treats its poor human moderators like absolute dirt. But y'know what it does treat right? Robots

and I

Why is any one still on FB?

Seriously, aren't folk finding the supposed benefits are failing in the face of this cesspits behavior and content?

I've managed to stay FB clean for 8 yrs now, any FOMO has completely gone, I manage a social life and I stay in touch with people I care about. Maybe I contact that long lost friend slightly less than I used to but when we catch up there is stuff to talk about.

May be commit to trying a month and see how you feel, from then on it gets so much easier :)

US: We'll pull security co-operation if you lot buy from Huawei

and I

I agree with the US!

I agree you cannot trust communications products made by foreign nationals, in the spirit of their recommendation we should rip out Huawai, CISCO, IBM, Ericsson, etc and build our own kit.

We can do this the easy way or the Huawei, US tells Germany with threat to snip intel over 5G fears

and I

er, which one is that?

The one that spies on their population, er both,

or the one that spies on others, er both,

or the one that supresses ethnic populations internally or the one that locks up migrants separates their kids and torturous folk abroad?

Or maybe demand EU kit only!

Correction: Last month, we called Zuckerberg a moron. We apologize. In fact, he and Facebook are a fscking disgrace

Suckers

Lol, you muppets still use Facebook, Suckers!

Ooops, just my inner Zuckerberg coming out,.

Whats(goes)App must come down... World in shock as Zuck decides to intertwine Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp

and I

Signal

Just deleted my WhatsApp account, switched to Signal and all my friends agreed the same move. Signal is encrypted. That's the very last of Zuckerbergs evil empire that had a toe hold on me, now to find solid replacements for the Google gorp.

More nodding dogs green-light terrible UK.gov pr0n age verification plans

and I

Re: Just like buying a magazine.

So the government has to deal with this by applying rules demanding full oversight of the internet in the UK and the parents do nothing. How about those with children taking responsibility? Why not have a system that stops anyone under age limit from logging on with out ID? If you have a 10 year old, you fix it but keep me out of it.
