This is a good write-up of the #youtubedl situation that should be accessible to non-techies:
If you need something to link your friends, family, or political representative to so that they can understand how absolutely preposterous and harmful the youtube-dl takedown is, this is a good link to have at hand.
#thesocialdilemma started something, if English is not your native language and you've tried to raise awareness of social media risks, finding resources can be hard.
Consider translating some?

Order of timelines / タイムラインの順序 | Cutls Blog - https://blog.cutls.com/2020/09/20/order-of-timelines/
Proposition #1: A feed which groups posts from the same user. When I open my main timeline, I would see 1 entry per user, maybe their most recent post, with a button to expend the block and see their previous posts. Kinda like opening their profile page. Ideally the system would have a way to know which posts I already saw in a previous visit and would hide those behind another fold. This way, if someone post a lot of message, they don't flood my timeline.

If we are concerned about the future of a more private & secure web, without a monopoly - we might want to double-down on our support of Mozilla to ensure that more people keep their jobs.
Let's work to oust any leadership without the vision we all need for a better web.
@celia It might be a good idea to try and create a Foss alternative to the likes of Siri and Google Assistant.
