@torgo I am positively surprised about how Mastodon seems to have taken off. I think its success is encouraging others and we are a lot more likely to see federated solutions in the future.
Negative? Facebook seems to be doing pretty well and staying the course, for a company that has screwed up spectacularly, publicly and repeatedly. One would have expected any one of these snafus to have an impact. It sends a bad message about people's regard for their own privacy.
@ricardojmendez unfortunately I think Facebook management is still in denial. Facebook users need to look after their own privacy - I wrote some thoughts here : https://www.torgo.com/blog/2018/12/how-to-put-facebook-in-a-box.html
@torgo Facebook management isn't in denial, there just haven't been any repercussions. As long as people continue using them, they don't have a lot of incentive to clean up their act.
