@librelounge By the way! Software Freedom Conservancy is currently running a fundraiser with a matching grant! They're about 60% of the way there so now is a great time to donate because your donation currently counts for double! sfconservancy.org/supporter/

Let's get them to 100%!

I’m seeing lots of posts today about how is tracking Android users via the SDK.

Is this really a shock to people? Like, really? This is Facebook we’re talking about here.

The answer is simple...delete your account.

And yes, I know it tracks even if you don’t have an account. So use a VPN, or don’t use that app.

Even if you don’t though, by not having a FB account you significantly reduce the amount of data they have on you anyway.

Conservancy makes a choice to be non-creepy, despite the overwhelming piles of spam from non-profit strategists, digital marketing experts and sales pitches for creepy lists. Instead? We rely on YOU to spread the word. sfconservancy.org/blog/2018/de

"I got started in free software barely five years ago, and I'm almost surprised by how much I've contributed since then. One of the big barriers for me was believing I could do it at all." @ehashman on her #freesoftware journey. (We're glad she's here!) sfconservancy.org/blog/2018/de
