Does someone have knowledge with #GDPR? What changes do I need to apply in the privacy policy even if the instance owns data? What about boosts that can be cached inside the app? Do I have to remove cache for them? I am quite lost. Any advices would be appreciated. Thanks.

Gestern wieder eine lange Diskussion über #mastodon, #gnusocial, #diaspora und soziale Netze jenseits von Facebook geführt. Vermutung: Der einzige Weg, hier überhaupt irgendetwas substantiell zu bewegen, ist: Schaffung einer Organisation (Foundation, Verein, ...), die schnell, zielgerichtet und systematisch zu klären versucht, was den Alternativen für "Endnutzertauglichkeit" momentan fehlt - und Lösungen dafür findet und etabliert. :|

With data-gathering on Facebook and other social media in mind:


* Your porn star name is the name of your first pet and the street you grew up on.
* Can you remember your first-grade teacher's name??
* Tag yourself with the first concert you ever went to!

Website security questions:
* What was the name of your first pet?
* What street did you grow up on?
* What was your first-grade teacher's name?
* What was the first concert you went to?

What if data only counted against your mobile high speed quota if the data is *actually delivered at high speed*???

Hey @tom79 , I love your client, thanks for your effort! Will there be a paid version in the future? I like to give something back. Cheers.

Do you know that you can mention a toot with the app?
Click on the drop-down menu of the toot, then mention. The app will take a screenshot of the toot with its URL and will mention the owner. It's cross-platform, so don't worry.

Every time, when @theru is doing his regularly re-adding, I feel loved and important 😎

Let me correct that: Have you noticed how anyone that doesn't use $service says that nobody uses $service?

Seen that already for $service:

I want to add the ability to follow other instances. The piece of code that is used for cross-account actions should help for interactions (replies/boosts/favorites) whatever the account used. I need to see edge effects, but it sounds possible.
