Damit alle, die #neuhier sind auch mal etwas in ihrem Stream zu sehen bekommen, ist hier mal eine Übersicht über "offizielle" Präsenzen von Institutionen, Bloggern usw. im #fediverse. Das soll jetzt mal keine Liste mit gespiegelten Newsfeeds sein, sondern wirklich aktive Konten.

Die Liste ist hoffentlich nicht vollständig und kann gerne in den Kommentaren erweitert werden. Alle, die hier in der Liste auftauchen, sind auch mehr oder weniger aktiv. Ich werde diese Liste auch regelmäßig aktualisieren.

Es wäre natürlich toll, wenn möglichst viele diesen Konten folgen, damit die verantwortlichen Redakteure usw. sehen, das es Sinn macht, auch hier ein Konto zu haben und nicht nur eine Handvoll Nerds damit bespielt werden.

Zum Folgen dieser Accounts einfach dem Link folgen und auf Verbinden klicken, oder den Link kopiert, bei euch unter Kontakte geht, im Feld Neue Kontakte hinzufügen den Link einfügt und auf Verbinden klickt.

Nachrichten, (Netz)Politik usw.






Kultur und Unterhaltung






Kommerzielles usw.






Die hier sind leider ziemlich inaktiv:




Politisches, Stiftungen, Parteien






Bei denen hier passiert leider nicht mehr so viel:




Federation






AStAs






Diverses






Critical Mass






Hier passiert leider nicht mehr so viel:




Spanisches und Französisches






Mastodon Accounts


Den Accounts auf Mastodon können die Nutzer auf Diaspora leider nicht folgen, das geht nur von Friendica aus.




Hier passiert leider nicht mehr so viel:




GNU Social

Inoffizielle Accounts


Bei den "inoffiziellen" Accounts handelt es sich meist um gespiegelte Feeds, d.h. interaktion findet da nicht statt, aber sie sind ganz interessant, damit der eigene Stream anfangs nicht so leer ist. Zu finden sind diese infoffiziellen Accounts im Friendica Directory:




Foren


Bei Friendica gibt es auch Foren, vergleichbar mit den Gruppen bei #Facebook. Den Foren können auch Diaspora-Nutzer beitreten und folgen.




Thanks to

Wenn Ihr noch weitere solcher Accounts kennt. könnt Ihr den Beitrag gerne kommentieren.

Viel Spaß im Fediverse

Which websites featured on the Federation have the worst privacy?


My last post highlighted how ticking the OEmbed box to add a website picture to a post can compromise Federation users if it contains a tracker.

[:]




[:]

I also mentioned tools, like Disconnect, we could use to detect websites which track their users. In this post I reveal some of the most popular reference websites on the Federation with low privacy and high tracking rates.

I believe Federation users should consider not embedding, or at least warning their readers about the surveillance techniques carried out by these sites.

A Princeton University study identified almost a million websites that track their users. Here are just 5 examples of websites whose stories are commonly quoted on the Federation:

WIRED


Wired is a popular website referenced on the Federation by many users because it publishes great tech-based stories. But how private is it?
Although it offers an ‘ad-free’ version for subscribers, normal visitors are ruthlessly fleeced for their data.

WIRED has embed deals (agreements to embed tracking codes into their pages for money or gain) with a staggering 171 third parties including Google, Amazon, Facebook, Vogue, GQ, Golf Digest, Bonappetit and Vanity Fair.




Some tracking beacons embedded on WIRED and captured by Ublock Origin

[:]

151 of these third parties are known tracking or advertising companies like Google, Amazon, Facebook, Turn, Add This, Scorecard Research, Adobe, Twitter Analytics, Typekit, Criteo and Quantserve. Aggressive trackers like Google Tag Manager (GTM), Add This and Turn are present here.

Below is a screengrab of the many scripts NoScript has blocked from the WIRED website, the 33 scripts, gifs and beacons blocked by Ublock Origin and a couple by Disconnect.




[:]

WIRED sets 25 short-term and 28 long-term cookies itself, while allowing its third party partners (including 69 tracking companies) to set 26 short-term and 133 long-term cookies.

It uses Google Analytics without the anonymization feature enabled, so user details are sent to Google servers.

All WIRED servers are based in the US so GDPR privacy rules can be ignored.

Websites loading this many scripts/cookies are usually blacklisted by most users, not least because they drain a device’s battery.

WIRED claims that subscribing with them will mean an ad free experience, but I find it hard to believe that a subscription to WIRED will suddenly load a clean page without a single tracker retrieving data. But then I am not a WIRED subscriber. Please comment if you are and have no trackers.

FOSSPOST


Seen by some as a safe pro-privacy resource celebrating Free and Open Source Software, FOSSPOST lets its users down by digitally fingerprinting their devices and loading 19 trackers into a browser.

[:]




[:]
FOSSPOST has embed deals with 27 third parties, making its embed renting in the ‘low’ category, including Google, Amazon, Creative Commons and WordPress.

13 of these are known tracking or advertising companies like Google, Amazon, Mailerlite, One Signal and the data-hungry caterpillar that is WordPress.

FOSSPOST sets 2 short-term and 2 long-term cookies itself while allowing its third party partners (including 3 tracking companies) to set 4 long-term cookies.

It uses Google Analytics without the anonymization feature so user details are sent to Google servers. All FOSSPOST servers are based in the US so GDPR privacy rules can be ignored.

TECHCRUNCH


Acquired by Yahoo’s parent company, Oath (a company that includes AOL), under the Verizon umbrella, in 2010, this is a popular reference source for researchers and Federation users.

Historically, Yahoo deserves some kudos as they were one of the few big tech companies that objected to sharing their users’ details with the PRISM
spy program.

The Bush administration threatened them with $250k a day fines until they complied. Verizon bought them in 2017. Yahoo suffered the largest data breach in history in 2018.

The link to this NYT story is not embedded (consider blocking the GTM tracker on the site)

https://www.nytimes.com/2014/09/12/technology/documents-unsealed-in-yahoos-case-against-us-data-requests.html

TECHCRUNCH.com fingerprints the user’s device and dumps 2-7 Yahoo trackers in their browser, depending on the page loaded.

[:]




[:]

TECHCRUNCH has embed deals with 27 third parties, including Google, Facebook, Yahoo and WordPress.
15 of these are known tracking or advertising companies like Google, Facebook, Yahoo, WordPress, Atwola, Typekit, AOL and Scorecard Research.

TECHCRUNCH sets 4 short-term and 5 long-term cookies itself while allowing its third party partners (including 4 tracking companies) to set 1 short-term and 7 long-term cookies.

It uses Google Analytics but interestingly enables the anonymization feature so some user details are not sent to Google servers.

All servers are based in the US so forget about GDPR privacy rules.

THE REGISTER .co.uk


Although a great resource with well-written and groundbreaking stories, it isn’t as private as I’d hoped.

There is no obvious digital fingerprinting but it seems to have gathered more Google syndication in the last couple of years, (9 of its 16 embed deals are with the Big G). 12 known tracking or advertising companies like Google, Admedo and the Amp Project gather data.

THE REGISTER sets 3 short-term and 4 long-term cookies itself while allowing its third party partners (including 2 tracking companies) to set 7 long-term cookies.

It uses Google Analytics without enabling the anonymization feature so user details are sent to Google servers. Although THE REGISTER’s domain is in the UK, both its data and email servers are based in the US so GDPR privacy rules could be compromised here, though I am not a lawyer.

The Guardian .com


I’ve been sitting on this for a few years now but it’s about time I blew the whistle.

I first noticed the Guardian newspaper’s website was digitally fingerprinting its users’ devices when they published an article on, um, Canvas Fingerprinting.

That page has been removed since, but they still continued doing it, long before Facebook, though not before Google.

[:]




[:]

I’ve kept quiet about this surveillance because I admire the paper for its incredible journalism, especially exclusives like the Snowdon revelations, and its general championing of freedom issues across many sectors of society. But the hypocrisy has started to wear me down.

Some tracking items & widgets embedded on Guardian .com and captured by Ublock Origin

The Guardian has embed deals with a privacy-sapping 142 third parties, including Google, Amazon, Bing, Twitter, and, despite being one of its main critics, Facebook. 132 of these third party partners are known tracking or advertising companies like Google, Amazon, Facebook, Turn, AddThis, Scorecard Research, Blue Kai, Twitter Analytics, Rubicon, Criteo and Quantserve.

Some of the most aggressive trackers like GTM, AddThis and Turn are present here.

The Guardian also sets 3 short-term and 5 long-term cookies itself, while allowing its third party partners (including 51 tracking companies) to set 10 short-term and 131 long-term cookies.

Yes, we NEED the Guardian’s continued existence, but castigating Facebook et al while allowing them to track its users doesn’t sit well with me.

The website uses Google Analytics but at least enables the anonymization feature, so some user details are not sent to Google servers.

Although The Guardian’s data servers are in Germany, their email servers are based in the US so GDPR privacy rules could be compromised here, though, again, I am not a lawyer.

In conclusion, I’ve given just 5 examples of popular sites Federation users quote in their posts.

I am NOT advocating a boycott of these sites but politely suggest we don’t OEmbed them, just feature a hyperlink and give readers the heads-up about these privacy concerns.

Alternatively, look for other sources featuring the same story. It’s also worth highlighting which websites do NOT add a tracker when we OEmbed a story, or have a low level of surveillance. Please promote those guys.

@Prismo △
While there is some merit in the idea of having only one channel per #Prismo instance, this should not generally prevent admins from setting up multiple ones. This is also how forums in #Hubzilla and groups in #GNUSocial are handled.
I also think sub-channels make sense in a federation, as they are identical to regular user channels, but (depending on access rights) can be posted on using the !bang and subscribed to just like regular channels. This again is already an established federation standard from #Hubzilla and #GNUSocial.

For a similar project to enable AP on #Flarum (#Feddle extention) it was discussed to translate the main #forum categories into channels and the subforums and tags into #hashtags


 
Calling all #Fediverse admins of instances in the #EU. The #CopyrightDirective is coming, we need to show the MEPs how massively the EU Internets will be affected.

We are preparing a list of all EU-based #Pleroma, #Mastodon, #GNUSocial, #Peertube, #Funkwhale, and any other instances.

Please *contact me*. All I need is the domain name, which EU Member State it's located in, and the rough topic of the instance. Approximate user count welcome, but not necessary.

Please help. This is important.

Appel à tous les admins du #Fediverse qui gèrent des instance dans l'#UE. La #CopyrightDirective se rapproche et nous devons montrer aux parlementaires ses effets sur l'Internet.

Nous préparons une liste de toutes les instances européennes #Pleroma, #Mastodon, #GNUSocial, #Peertube, #Funkwhale, etc.

Contactez-moi. Je n'ai besoin que du nom de domaine, du pays et de l'objectif général de l'instance. Un nombre approximatif d'utilisateur est le bienvenu, mais pas indispensable.

C'est important.

Pushed to !Friendica Developers

I am wrong or #friendica api is quite limited?
I can't find a way to offer follow/unfollow features.
https://github.com/friendica/friendica/wiki/Friendica-API#not-implemented-api-calls
Also, it's the same for tags search but both mentioned points work with #GNUSocial
Let me know if I am missing something. Thanks.
#Fedilab #Mastalab


 
I think I will start to have a look to the #gnusocial api, that will also allow #friendica accounts to use the app.
I have no ideas how long it could take and if I will succeed. I just want to give it a try.
