Was your data leaked in the #Facebook Data Breach? You Can Sue Facebook for Monetary Damages

If you live in the #EuropeanUnion or European Economic Area, you can seek monetary damages from Facebook. The #GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) gives you the right to monetary compensation where your data protection rights have been breached.

Digital Rights Ireland

By the way: You have time until 15 May for leaving . Then, it will become mandatory to accept the new terms and conditions in order to use it (which was never advised in the first place).

I recommend using the Android app created by @dsoft which lets you auto-respond to incoming WhatsApp messages via the notifications' reply option. You can enter a custom text like:

"Sorry, I've switched to XMPP. Text me via user@example.com. Thanks."

Facebook claims to protect your privacy - by stopping an academic team "who've done brilliant work in exposing the company's failures to contain scams, rip-offs, and political disinformation" from continuing to do their research. It is time to do privacy right, being transparent is a big part of that!

There is now a Mastodon instance for publishing scientists: FediScience.

Everyone is welcome from PhD student to professor, as well as researchers from outside of academia. You are welcome to stay afterwards, but it is also easy to change to another server.

There will be a lot of science talk on this server, but there is no need to only talk science

Boosts are appreciated to let others know about this new instance.

Instagram Import has been successfully tested in production!

The beta will be available within the hour on supported instances.

2 years ago I was working on a federated microblogging project.

Then I re-joined Mastodon.

Two weeks later I started working on Pixelfed. I wanted to build something that didn't exist in the fediverse.

It worked.

Pixelfed will turn 2 years old next month! 🎉 🚀
