Response doubling overnight was great to wake up to! Thank you, #mastodon!
@theprivacyfoundation I'm missing the "I don't because it totally sucks and I care about privacy" option 😕
@nipos that’s a given by not answering ;)
Hoping to identify the different islands that users are on in regard to using untrusted systems. This will aid in identifying potential solutions.
@theprivacyfoundation we’ll see if anyone responds https://twitter.com/JonahAragon/status/1191559797713391616
@jonah thank you!
@theprivacyfoundation 94 votes so far on my Twitter poll, surprisingly different than your results here! Products working better takes the lead.
@jonah Interesting! The singular response option may be playing into it, but audience could be factor as well. Thank you for posting and sharing the stats to date!
@jonah Would you mind sharing the results once completed?
@theprivacyfoundation yeah, it's done. 50 more votes, but virtually unchanged from my last update. I wonder if "works better" took the lead because Twitter is a more feature-mature & closed platform, whereas the Mastodon users from your poll might be willing to put up with less features in exchange for a more trustworthy platform 🤷♂️
@jonah Thank you for sharing that! There could very well be a perception shift based upon the platform predominantly used by the voter. Still, very interesting results.
Mastodon doesn't support many features like Twitter! :-
1) Create moments (non-existent, useful for collecting tweets).
2) Does not support many languages, such as Arabic is not fully supported
3) Translation not available! Like translating tweets on Twitter
4) Home to follow accounts ==> Bad! Twitter is easy and beautiful.
5) How to publish: Back to Mastdon, then publish, then back to Mastdon for my account page! Annoying!!
6) Sign out of all devices (not present)
7) Mastodon is unclear! Needs a detailed explanation.
@theprivacyfoundation do friends count as family or as employer?
@Wolf480pl Hi! Would probably consider as family...
Is there options for no, i do not. Or more acuretly. "I feel like they are less functional"?
@Twelve Hello! There is no option for “no”. This thread may help understand why: https://mastodon.social/web/statuses/103074400166617026
@theprivacyfoundation I am to lazy and no time
I think that FOMO has it's counterpart here on privacy minded circles, but instead of feeling left out we tend to shame other people for their software choices.
We're sometimes like vegans shaming vegetarians for not being ethical enough consumers.
But we must face that there is no ethical production or consumption under our current economical circumstances. We should not shame consumers, but demand producers to produce less unethically.
@theprivacyfoundation This means, in software and privacy at least, that users are not to blame for their data and privacy being compromised. It's the fault of big corporations and governments for extracting our data and violating our privacy.
We ought not engage in conflict with other users, because were part of the same team. User consciousness means realizing fighting each other will solve nothing.
@theprivacyfoundation Unfortunately... all of them...
What if I dont?
