Acabo de escribir un artículo sobre self-host, algunos de los servicios que tengo y futuros planes https://www.betoissues.com/2021/01/self-hosted-0-mis-alternativas/
People from monal.im (xmpp) didn't hesitate to publish this haha https://monal.im/blog/the-end-of-whatsapp-is-an-opportunity/
Because I am getting too many strange signups in the last 24 hours and most people don't read the Terms of Service, I added a Temporary Notice to Masto.host Pricing page: https://masto.host/pricing/
"If you are looking for an alternative to Parler, this is not it. Please look elsewhere. Thanks."
I hope that's clear enough :)
by "social monopoly" i mean, remove fb from a regular person, i already smell the despair not being able to share their photos, their status, even communicate because only this single company owned their virtual life.
Just wishing for them to at least use "Secret Chats".
Recent events in the US have resulted in the removal of Trump accounts on social networks. We have also read news about the suspension of some app.
Not being American, it is not my intention to value those decisions, but I'm concerned to see how some entities decide what is appropriate. Just for reasons of safeguarding? Can that motivation match their economic reasons? 🤔
The reasons of some decisions can play against us in the future. The #fediverse has an important role in this question.
Reading the #WhatsApp news, and I can't help but think of Tom Arnold's line from True Lies:
"Ballsy. Stupid, but ballsy."
Considering the fact that Facebook is already under increased scrutiny right now, and there is definitely more than one politician already looking to break the company up into little bits due to anti-trust violations, this move at this time seems especially stupid. Certainly shows a devil-may-care attitude about the whole thing though. Glad I've never used WhatsApp.
