Sorry, Fitbit users. Based on Google’s history, you’re likely to either eventually lose your Fitbit’s functionality, or get your health and exercise data sucked up by the Google machine. https://blog.fitbit.com/2021-update/
"Getting people to value privacy is like trying to get somebody raised on Burger King to value their heath. They won't know how important it is until they have that first stroke."

A government has to full fill freedom of speech, not a social platform! Any platform can create it's own rules and ban users for not complying as simple as that..
It's not that you don't have "free speech", people/platform just don't wanna listen to your shit if you get banned.

I didn't like Brave before, but today a friend told me about Brave's CEO. This is (imo) the definitive reason of why Brave shouldn't be used.
I didn't know that their CEO was the co-founder of Mozilla, that guy that was (and is) against same sex marriage and that's an antimasker, Brendan Eich. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brendan_Eich

If you are looking for a privacy-friendly alternative to Facebook Events, you might want to check out Mobilizon:
It's a free open source federated events platform, and is part of the Fediverse as it uses the ActivityPub protocol.
Because it's still new, it currently only federates between Mobilizon instances. You can't follow Mobilizon instances from Mastodon yet, however this is planned for the future.
Google Analytics is the largest and one of the worst trackers. It's used even on sites that promote privacy, GNU/Linux, etc.
There are some free (as in freedom) and privacy-friendly alternatives:
