@tinker that is not true - and they might be safer with such a big corporation (with clearly defined policies for access and very knowledgeable devops) than with a random Mastodon admin (who may or may not be running all security updates every night). Sais this random admin :-)
@arjenpdevries Mastodon isn't a private messaging tool (there's no (auditable) end to end encryption) but you can't pretend it's "safer" to blindly trust a company run by surveillance marketing. It's not "safer" at all, it's defective by design.
Any big corps get hacked on regular basis… "knowledge devops" is not a valid argument. Especially when those companies practice mass surveillance for money.
@arjenpdevries The bank is supposed to give me my money back if they get hacked and someone steal my money because of it.
Marketing companies sell your data to anyone they want, and will give you nothing, even if they're breached.
It's not comparable at all.
Trust isn't an issue, most people blindly trust those companies and don't give a shit about their own privacy/the privacy of others. All they see is "$stuff is so convenient!". Look at facebook…
The social network of the future: No ads, no corporate surveillance, ethical design, and decentralization! Own your data with Mastodon!
