New Blog Post: Opting your Website out of Google's Network

paramdeo.com/blog/opting-your-

You can remove your website from Google's FLoC rollout by altering HTTP response headers.

Plausible has opted out of Google FLoC!

Visits to our site will not be included when Google determines a cohort to share with their partners for personalized advertising purposes.

We recommend other sites to opt out of FLoC too!

@mastohost I'd like to ask, if you've considered adding the permissions policy to stop Google's FLoC on all the instances hosted by you collectively? Or is it even realistic to do so?

As far as I know, it's something that must be added in the .htaccess file, and as we instance admins don't have server access we can't do it ourself.

PSA: It is okay to block people and instances on the Fediverse!

The idea of the Fediverse is that no one controls the network. Each part of the network can make its own rules and enforce them.

If one instance starts causing trouble (for example by not moderating spammers), it is fine for other instances to block them.

Mastodon's promo animation from a couple of years ago explains this quite well:

Networks need to have blocking ability, otherwise they become unusable.

If you're new to the Fediverse, here are some good first steps:

-Post a bit about yourself and what you're interested in, using the hashtag #Introduction so that people can say hello to you

-Follow some interesting accounts, a good place to start is at mastodon.online/@FediFollows/1

-If you're looking for people to follow you, add yourself to Trunk, a community-run site: communitywiki.org/trunk

-Add a fun avatar to your profile (did you know they can be animated GIFs?)

@loke > Back in the 80's the people who understood technology and the people who used technology was roughly the same set. This led to a misbelief that using technology made you understand it.

In the 80's there were efforts to teach people how technology worked in order to empower them to use it well. It was fairly common for someone to start using computers for a very practical end, and to then start learning how they actually worked, because the systems were set up to facilitate that.

What we have today is cynically constructed to be impenetrable. Today's computers and today's electronics are designed to keep the user out, so it's no wonder that only a tiny, extremely motivated subset understand things. That's by design, but it's not how things need to work.
