looking for a recent article I think I remember seeing but don't have a lot of details on Show more
I vaguely remember a recent article that I thought was called "Tech's Consent Problem" (but am not finding on google) about how tech design/business models are structured around ignoring/denying user agency.
e.g., how prompts often have 'yes' and 'later' but no option for 'no' how sites regularly revert privacy options
hmm, maybe it was a tweet thread Show more
anyway. feel free to just write this article so I can rea it
Friend Camp features several modifications that were requested by our users.
If you want decent privacy (the info doesn't leave this server), the only way to do that is to set your account to private, only accept friend requests from other friend.camp users, and only ever @ mention other friend.camp users. Once you start talking to people on other servers, all bets are off. Any private message you send to someone on another server could be looked at by the admin of a different server. This is kind of like email: if you are on a private email server, and you send an unencrypted email to a gmail account, congrats, Google now has the content of that email. But also, you do this every day, so, hey. The internet!
