TikTok does gather a lot of personal data, but it’s no more than what Facebook and other social networks also gather. The difference between TikTok and Facebook is that we have a great deal of transparency into the process by which Facebook gives your information to various governments. And specifically, Facebook does not release data to the Chinese government.”
Facebook employees are starting to realize they're working for an evil organization that's actively harming humanity.

Perhaps they should be thinking of the lives that have been taken because of social media.
So if you depend on Google's and Microsoft's, Facebook's etc. products you are subject to regulations set by this companies and government controlling them. If you use free software you are subject to regulations set by wide community of people and you, if skilled enough, can change the laws yourself to suit your needs.

A friendly reminder that the @peertube campaign is still running until complete.
If you want:
- better overall UX and global search
- better moderation tools

- live streaming
please consider donating to the campaign. Each contribution matters, even the smallest ones.
Thanks for helping making the internet a better place!

Surveillance capitalism is the same as climate change, but for data:
- Some people have been warning about its consequences for years
- Most people don't care because they don't feel concerned, they can't see it affecting them
- A few companies are making a lot of damage with the help of governments
- When we will face the consequences it will be too late
- We can still do something about it, and the sooner the better
