Ugh still can't ditch FB. How comes it is *the* de facto communication channel?

@huy_ngo Accurate. I've been trying for years to get my wife to ditch FB messenger, but it's her go-to for communication. She doesn't care anywhere nearly as much as I do about privacy...

Same with my wife, too!

I attribute that to the lack of knowledge, the desire to "yap" and/or to "snoop" on other people!

I gave up trying to explain, long ago!


@braunne My wife doesn't care that her personal information is being sold to advertisers. And since she's a legal immigrant in our country she figures she's already got extra attention on her from the government so she's okay with them tracking her online stuff too.

I've given up on trying to explain to her...

@huy_ngo I can relate. I talked people into #Signal but they continue to communicate on their non #E2EE messenger when I’m not a participant. It wouldn’t bother me so much if I hadn’t caught them sending documents and information about me more than once. 😖

@huy_ngo yup! I had to reinstall WhatsApp because of my mum. 🤦‍♂️
