Hey @Mainebot , I'm in @Framasoft, a french non-profit promoting FLOSS and free-libre culture. In 3 years we have opened 32 services in https://degooglize.org as a POC that Free-Libre softwares & data ethics can be an alternative to surveillance capitalism.

I agree with this anti-algorithm rant. Fortunately, it can be bypassed on G+, for example, by clicking on anyone of interest. Maybe even a fix for Facebook (http://alwaysupward.com/blog/fb-fans-arent-seeing-your-posts-and-how-to-fix-it/). But most sheeple won't do that, because, too often, social media is akin to the passive experience of watching TV.
