"How Facebook tracks you on Android (even if you don’t have a Facebook account)" https://media.ccc.de/v/35c3-9941-how_facebook_tracks_you_on_android/
TL;DW: every Android app that includes the Facebook SDK (usually used for a "log in with Facebook" button) sends a beacon to Facebook as soon as the app is open (in the default settings for the SDK, so most developers don't disable it).
@zachleat speaking of the negativity around quote-tweets, it didn’t even occur to me that it could be toxic until a few days ago when I saw this toot about how quote-toots won’t be a feature: https://mastodon.social/@Gargron/99662106175542726
And now I’ve read your blog post and yeah, learning a lot about how it can be a tool for negativity.
I've made a deliberate choice against a quoting feature because it inevitably adds toxicity to people's behaviours. You are tempted to quote when you should be replying, and so you speak at your audience instead of with the person you are talking to. It becomes performative. Even when doing it for "good" like ridiculing awful comments, you are giving awful comments more eyeballs that way. No quote toots. Thank's
