Joking aside. In the midst of #deletefacebook a few privacy concerns have come to light on mastodon too. For example, admins can see ALL toots on an instance. "Private" or otherwise.
Important note: mastodon doesn't have "Private messaging", it has 1:1 messaging only. I know this has been raised to @Gargron and options are being explored of maybe having a warning msg.
If it makes anyone feel more comfortable, I can categorically say that I have NEVER read any toots in the admin system, unless I'm checking an reported account.
Also, I am NOT doing anything with Toot data. It exists on this server and this server alone. @mike is also an admin.
Fosstodon is a Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
