Don't attribute to malice what you can attribute to incompetence. Internal memo says Facebook's failure to act in preventing abuse outside the West is lack of resources and/or interest https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/craigsilverman/facebook-ignore-political-manipulation-whistleblower-memo

So many people saying they're switching from Firefox. Won't this only make the problem worse?
If you're switching to Brave or qutebrowser or UnGoogled Chromium or something, you're only strengthening Google's monopoly. If you're switching to a Webkit-based browser like Epiphany, you're shifting the monopoly towards Safari, whose parent company doesn't consider the Web a priority.
That Mozilla has bad management doesn't change the fact that Firefox is the most viable option for the open web.

@jan That's really useful. Thanks very much.
As I've already got a Jekyll blog, I've started with the low hanging fruit, IndieAuth and microformats.
I'll see how I get on with next steps, but I can see having to migrate from a static site.
@jan Thanks. I'm just planning my own IndieWeb space and trying to figure out how and what to put together. It's a dizzying array of components, eh?
@Dai Do we think the peer review process will conclude that this meta-study is wrong and masks are actually harmful? Should we take the risk?
@Dai How about this research?
You need to diversify your news sources.
@Dai Sure, it doesn’t link directly to the government, but it does show questionable behaviour towards monitoring users and their data.
I’m not saying ban or not. And this isn’t tiktok specific. Just that users should be aware that platforms are vacuuming user data, and are most likely sharing this data with their respective governments.
Great piece from last year on refocusing the communication space from platforms to protocols. Well worth the long read.
