@taoeffect - I can't agree with your more. However, in this case specifically I was not entirely sure whether Instagram would block Russian opposition content for other countries. That's why I quoted the news.
Domestic censorship is quite severe too. For instance, I recall Google suspended Jordan Peterson Youtube account. Or some of right-wing channels got demonetized. I am pretty much always against applying such funny censorships, because interferes freedom of speech.
@taoeffect - thanks for the update. The early news I read, mentioned that they will only ban in Russia.
#Instagram has blocked posts in #Russia relating to corruption claims made by the country's most prominent opposition leader.
This is one of the apparent example that companies like #Instagram don't give a damn about freedom of speech and free access to the information. What they care is their userbase and business profit. That's why people should avoid using (be used as #RMS says) such services. Aside from #privacy issues. #freedom
Can someone explain to me the relation between #SpyCamera and #Valentine's gift for #Men.
The recommender system of the e-commerce site is pretty screwed. They added #SpyCameras as treasure gift for men. Odds.
Is there any more bullshit movement than #getyourassintonature?
It’s not AI vs people
It’s not Big Data vs people
It’s not robots vs people
It’s corporations vs people.
@libre - it is quite crappy. It encourages me to stay offline as much as possible.
that's why you should leave Facebook
Many people ask me this question frequently: "Why are you so against giant tech companies (like #Google, #FB, #Twitter, #Apple, etc.)?"
My answer: "Well, I am not against any company in particular. I am against power accumulation in one place with no transparency because it creates corruption."
To make it clear. If tomorrow Google decides to be transparent about their processes, I will encourage people to use their services. But until then, I do opposite.
@amolinux - Thanks for introducing. The site is very useful.
@MereLinuxMortal - Thanks. Glad that you like it.
@extebert - that's correct. DuckDuckGo still queries Google. Thanks for introducting YaCy. I wasn't aware of it.
Finally added #Mastodon to Follow Me section of my blog. It is not perfect but good enough. https://linuxrocks.online/media/tMV7HuvXkxODvbm5SJQ
