WhatsApp was that nice, paid but affordable messaging until the F in the GAFAM happened. I want to avoid everything Facebook.
I still have some time to force my family to use Signal or until I setup a Matrix server for my family.
I am not sure right now but I'm less likely to accept.
I shared my Signal number. I am ready to even deploy a Matrix server with Jitsi for video calls just for the family. So no, I won't accept.
@danie10 i don't want to, in my private phone i dont use it.
That said on my work phone, I have to come to accept, my colleagues and boss refuse to use another app, no reason how much I try to convince them not to use it.
@PMFL @danie10 I've read of someone convincing their boss to switch to signal by pointing out, that WhatsApp isn't supposed to be used for businesses (as that's what WhatsApp business is for) and they could in theory get sued. seems to have worked for that person but I didn't find any information backing up that claim
I tried to do the same, but my boss has bosses and a big corporation is proactively impossible. On facebook when I left I tried to get my 300 personal friends out of it with valid arguments. Only one came with me. :(
I think people for the convenience of not wasting time, of having friends and family there who would have to convince, don't even want to know. What deep down is sad even though you know what Facebook apps do.
