All your face are belong to us

Illustration of a smiley left and a skull right, by wondertom.de

Imagine you'd like to build a database with not only every data you usually can get through user interaction with your service and the device where your app has been installed on, but with pictures of your user's faces, too. What a treasure trove in times of face recognition software. But surely after all those...

DeleteFaceBook

So, endlich habe ich meinen Facebook Account gelöscht. Anfang des Jahres hatte ich bereits sämtliche Aktivitäten dort eingestellt, alle meine Inhalte gelöscht. Wobei, "gelöscht" bei Facebook heisst ja nur, es ist für mich und andere nicht mehr sichtbar; meine (Meta)Daten und Interaktionen und Verbindungen werden wohl bis zum großen Kometeneinschlag in hoffentlich ferner Zukunft auf...

The indieweb privacy challenge (webmentions, silo backfeeds, and the GDPR) - Sebastian Greger

A thorough article on the current challenges, technically and ethically, regarding the use of elsewhere published public data that can be regarded as 'personal data' in the GDPR/DSGVO sense. Data that will be published for example by pulling in likes, shares and comments posted on Twitter here in my blog, as 'reactions' alongside with 'real'...

Tick, Trick und Scheisstrack

Jetzt also #deletefacebook? Hm. Ich finde es ja einerseits gut, dass endlich (endlich?) mal die Diskussion darüber aufkommt, was Facebook (hier stellvertretend für alle Datenmolkereien genannt) so eigentlich als Geschäftsmodell entwickelt hat.

Until a few weeks ago, however, the social network’s self-service ad-targeting tools could be massaged into revealing a Facebook user’s cellphone number from their email address. The same flaw made it possible to collect phone numbers for Facebook...

Want readers to start trusting you again? Stop stalking them across the internet - poynter.org

(…) trust must also involve thinking thoughtfully about the platforms and tools we use to track readers, measure behavior and determine how to monetize. It must involve thinking about the data we collect — or let others collect — and then what could be done with that data. In other words, trust is something that...

Why You Should Fly Under The Radar When Booking A Trip - Mozilla Blog

To start, if you use the web to find cheap flights, you might notice an uptick in web ads for the routes you just searched for. These results aren’t just influenced by what you look up and buy online, but include related sites—even online publications where you get your news and celebrity gossip. Some e-commerce...

The new oil

Anselm just published a response* to NYT's "The Big Five tech companies increasingly dominate our lives. Could you ditch them?" quiz. His personal results seem to be quite similar to what I'd find out. Ditching Apple for example would be way harder for me as, say, ditching Facebook - which I already try to avoid...
