Terrible FREE idea for Facebook (WhatsApp) 

macrumors.com/2021/08/03/faceb

Facebook, if you want to use encrypted messages for targeted advertisement, there is a plausible way that doesn't involve actually breaking encryption, but rather doing some in-device analysis. It's just as invasive and abusive as a backdoor, and hopefully it will cause enough backslash to destroy public trust in WhatsApp if you ever implement it. Here it goes:

If this being the case the latest regulation (see iv) doesn't make any sense especially when vaccines are scarce!

The rape-murder case is beyond horrifying. It's not only that the girl was just 9.

It's the impunity that these monsters thought they had, to do what they wanted with a Dalit girl, gaslight her mother, burn the body.

@DelhiPolice@twitter.com had better do their jobs, for once.

There are a lot of people 'complaining' about the new app🤔

But many seem to forget something: You get a FREE open source application that works just fine without ANY data collection. If you don't like it there are 4 more apps you can use that do include the local and federated timeline.

If you are using Mastodon you are using a FREE open source platform that is mainly developed by Eugen, don't forget about all time and effort he put in so we can toot :thinktink:

I get that some people think there's a certain "responsibility" with Eugen since he is the main developer and decides a lot for us

BUT...

Again, is open source and YOU can make your own copy or so called "fork". Stop complaining and start learning how to improve YOUR version of Mastodon..

If you want new things or changes be KIND about it, I totally get when Eugen says no after a shitload of complaints.

C'mon people, respect the guy for his work..

When the Indian govt created unique health IDs, it said they were optional.

However, individuals are now being issued health IDs without their consent or the option to opt out.
