Btw Share content from c/privacy to regular social medias

I can download element from f droid or Google Play. Which one should I download from?
Pros and cons of each? - Google play has auto update, whereas f droid has semi automatic updates where it takes more effort. - The Google play flavor comes with support for FCM (i.e. push notifications via Google infrastructure). The f-droid flavor relies on regular polling for events (so that messages might come in a little bit later, though I am not sure whether it can keep a connection open for real time push notifications).

True, to watch Netflix you can just hire a VPS on the country you want to be, and with sshuttle easily tunnel your data to that server, but this will only work if you use Linux (if I’m not wrong, you can always use a Linux VM or WSL2 with GUI for the browser I suppose). Hiring a very small VPS for some hours a day is much cheaper.

i don’t know what any of this means. Not asking you to explain, just an fyi lol!

Market privacy towards folks the way vpns market themselves?
Almost no one cares about privacy, thats why every single VPN advertices themselves as "You can watch Neflix' catalogs from another countries" Pretty similar to the john oliver, 'the gov is collecting your dick pics' approach, which i linked from https://lemmy.ml/c/showerthoughts

Not that i disagree the situation over there is hellish

I’m surprised you haven’t been downvoted to hell

How google killed xmpp - this could happen to the fediverse
cross-posted from: https://lemmy.perthchat.org/post/10356 > the short version was that it was an up-and-coming federated protocol, with people working on clients and stuff, and trying to attract users. then everyone got really excited when Google decided to start using XMPP in their Google Talk product, because it would mean instant adoption by a ton of people! except now everyone just used Google Talk as their client, because it was ahead of the existing XMPP clients in terms of usability/UX, and UX work on other clients kinda died. but over time, Google being Google, they got distracted and started neglecting Google Talk, failing to enable TLS support while the rest of the XMPP ecosystem started making it mandatory, essentially cutting off all Google Talk users from the rest of the XMPP network. so now you had a Google Talk network that everyone was using with a decent-ish client, and an XMPP network that a bunch of people were using with clients that sucked, and they couldn't talk, and all the momentum in developing a strong stand-alone network was lost due to people letting Google control the whole thing > > Over the years, open-source has kinda turned from "let's build a public commons" into "let's do free work for big corporations" and it's... not a good change, to say the least

cross-posted from: https://lemmy.perthchat.org/post/9739 > I think they twitter will become a lot more lax on bans, potentially more strict on banning people who make fun of elon. I think trump will return to twitter. Overall, seems like a ginormous win for the libertarians/ancaps. > > I think we should capitalize on this moment and bring way more people to the fediverse.

What's their instance about? Like lemmygrad is communist, mander.xyz is science

An instance says this in their term of service. Isn’t it bad?
