People today do not get why cleaning your mouse balls was not a joke.

I am glad this is getting more mainstream attention.

From personal experience I know many websites do this for the idea of maintaining state should the browser lose state, but even then

it's still creepy to think that your incomplete thoughts are being saved where others can potentially access it.

How many times have you written something in anger or otherwise emotional that you ultimately did not share? Or worse, did something dumb like including financial info?

"But anyone could claim to be anyone on Mastodon, how will people know it's really me"

Ho boy let me tell you about a time called "before social media giants"

Tag 1, #Tröt die Erste!
Es ist der 1. Mai 2022. #Instagram #Viber #Snapchat Accounts gelöscht bzw. zum Löschen vorgemerkt.
Auf gehts zum nächsten Schritt, meinen persönlichen Weg von #SocialMediaDetox zu begehen. Als nächstes stehen #Twitter #LinkedIn und #Facebook an. Natürlich fliegen nach und nach #WhatsApp, #Signal, #Telegram und Co. ebenfalls runter vom Mobiltelefon. Einzig #Threema wird es weiter auf meinem #Smartphone geben. Wer mich dann noch unbedingt erreichen möchte, kann mich völlig primitiv wie damals anrufen oder etwas moderner per E-Mail anschreiben. Dass ich durch Zufall auf #Digitalcourage gestoßen und mit dieser tollen #Instanz gestartet bin, halte ich für ein gutes Zeichen. Ich denke, Digitalcourage ist eine gute Instanz, um endlich davon wegzukommen, dass man eigentlich kein Kunde, sondern nur Datenlieferant bei fast allen Anbietern ist.
Jetzt suche ich weiter nach all den #Instanzen, für die es sich lohnt, überhaupt online zu sein.
Ich halte euch auf dem Laufenden. #StayTuned

will become an absolute necessity in the near future. Having all the supply chain completely fucked up and prices all over increasing like never before, people will need to learn how to do stuff themselves instead of pulling a credit card.

I have encountered more image descriptions on Mastodon in 24 hours than I have in Twitter in a couple of years. Seriously. I'm not exaggerating.
As a blind person, this means a lot to me. If you read this and you describe your images, thank you so, so, so much on behalf of all of us. If you don't, now you know you'll be helping random Internet strangers make sense of your posts by typing in a few more words than usual.

WOW. Yeah I've been on mastadon for like only five days now but I'm already flabbergasted at the world that should have been... w3.org/TR/activitypub/#Overvie

Like literally how did we all agree to just NOT have interoperable social networks??? Looking at the activity pub docs makes it clear how ridiculously easy that would have been. You want my content? Just GET my outbox. Want to send me something? Just POST to my inbox. The server can be anything you want, just format your messages in this (VERY INTUITIVE!) way. It's so simple it's STUPID.

I'm very new to all of this, so I'll admit that there's a lot I don't know, but what is painfully obvious right now is how, yet again, the tendrils of Capitalism have fundamentally altered the STRUCTURE of the Internet to make it less open, less empowering and generally WORSE for most users. However, what's also becoming clear is that it does not have to be that way, and being here is in some small way, bringing about that better possible future.

App privacy labels show stark contrasts among messaging apps 9to5mac.com/2021/01/04/app-pri

TL;DR:

Signal - perfect!

iMessage - very good (and defensible).

WhatsApp - huh, that's starting to seem a little sus.

Facebook Messenger: oh hell no.

Remember kids, once you're in a well defended network, you are likely seen.
