#facebook is embedding tracking data inside photos you download.
I noticed a structural abnormality when looking at a hex dump of an image file from an unknown origin only to discover it contained what I now understand is an IPTC special instruction. Shocking level of tracking..
I challenge you to get 5 people on Mastodon by the end of 31st of July 2019.
"Since the Fediverse is decentralized and allows users to host their own content, Gab can’t possibly comply with this demand so the app will almost certainly be banned from the Google Play Store a week from now." https://reclaimthenet.org/google-play-bans-gab-app/

Physical (de)centralization of Mastodon servers – after our XMPP scan, we took 1000+ random Mastodon servers and looked at their hosters:
– about 50% of these servers are hosted by only 5 companies in 4 countries
– 26% of servers are hosted in Japan, followed by the USA (24%) and France (23%)
@bigl0af I'm now following at least 3 big loafs 😂
Gab becomes the largest Mastadon node, bringing the largest user contribution to the fediverse https://reclaimthenet.org/gab-biggest-mastadon-node/amp/?__twitter_impression=true
Oh well! The free version of #Fedilab has been removed by Google.
I know people started to report it. But... Why the reason is for "payments policy violation"? I appealed for that but I will not re-upload anything for this version.
Don't forget to get it with #Fdroid: https://f-droid.org/en/packages/fr.gouv.etalab.mastodon/
or the version built from sources. Follow @mastalab for links to apk.
Strangely, the paid version is not *currently* affected.
