The days of thriving Facebook pages are coming to an end quickly. If you run your own Facebook page you’ve already experienced this problem of reaching your own fans. These people who opted in and want to receive your updates won't ever see them now unless you pay money.

These two videos reveal the shadiness of what’s happening on Facebook right now. The videos explain why we often don't see each other’s posts, why all of our pages are filled with fake users, and how Facebook makes more money because of it.

Happy holidays from the RedMatrix development folks. We'd like to kick the holidays off with a bang, so we've tagged our software repository with a tag called "stable-1". It's a snapshot in time when many (but not nearly all) the features and functions we've been working on are stable and most of the basic stuff works.

The RedMatrix is a decentralized identity and communications platform layered on the #internet. Sound complicated? It's not really. Just think of it as a web application that does some pretty cool stuff. The matrix grows organically as channels are created and connect with each other in various ways, kind of like the way neurons in the brain connect with each other to form associations and memories.

We're going to take a short breather from writing code (maybe 10 minutes or so) and call this a "first release" of sorts. In some sense the project will never be "finished" as long as there are people or organisations seeking new ways to interact - and yet wish to maintain full control over their own privacy and #web #identity. As the internet increasingly turns into a mass surveillance system, the need for better #privacy tools and direct #interaction with friends and family has never been greater.

You can find us at https://libertypod.com - although the RedMatrix isn't a website. It's actually hundreds of #websites (and growing) which all connect together in interesting ways to create something much larger.  

You can also grab your own copy at https://github.com/friendica/red or join any of our other public hubs (https://redmatrix.me/pubsites).

Join those who've already #gotzot, and perhaps we'll see you inside the #matrix.

"After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill - the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill - you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes."

Apparently they weren't making enough money off their prey while providing spy agencies with all user data. To be profitable enough, all your stalkers must be able to find you without restriction.

I have noticed lots of people claiming that it's bad to use #DuckDuckGo because it's not "NSA-Proof" or affiliated with Bing.
I really don't care if there is any affiliation with #Bing, so long as it improves #search results without compromising my #privacy.
My counter argument to the 'not NSA-Proof' claims has been the same as CEO Gabriel Weinberg's in this video. What say you?

With growing concerns surrounding online #privacy, millions of #BitTorrent users are using #VPN services to hide their #sharing activity. This works well, until the VPN connection breaks exposing one’s personal IP-address. Luckily there are ways to prevent this from happening, including the free and #opensource #VPNWatcher application that allows users to shut down their client when the VPN connection is lost.
