A centrally controlled digital currency means you:
❌ Could have your "cash" deleted or expired at any time.
❌ Won't be able to spend it without carrying a "smartphone" (government tracking device).
❌ Every single transaction you make will be recorded by your government.
❌ If it's decided by your government that you're a "problem", they could delete your account, meaning you couldn't earn, save, spend or buy necessary supplies such as food or medicines.
You ever wondered how you can send a short message from Tails, to your smartphone, without internet connection, and even without connecting phone and Laptop?
You can easily do so, by creating a QR code and that you scan with your phone.
1. Open the terminal.
2. type: qr "your secret message or url"
3. scan the QR code with your phone
For more options type: qr --help
LibreOffice tip of the day: In Calc, you can protect cells with Format > Cells > Protection. To prevent insert, delete, rename, move/copy of sheets use Tools > Protect Sheet. More here: https://help.libreoffice.org/latest/en-GB/text/scalc/guide/cell_protect.html

Really, asking "what should replace Facebook" is putting things the wrong way around.
A more interesting way to ask the question is, "what did Facebook replace."
People used to build their own websites. People used to have blogs. People used USENET which was truly distributed and un-censorable.
Facebook and Google took the open internet and open standards and monetized and made everything crappy. Enough of that. Nothing should replace Facebook, it's done, stick a fork in it.
@PINE64 @mobian got a pleasant surprise today when I tried the Megapixels camera app and got it to take and save photos!!! Whoop whoop!!! 😃👌 Then installed #Shotwell to mildly improve them, used #Bluetooth to send them to my tablet, reduced them to 500kb and #thankyou !!! 😊🙏 1) Main camera 2) Front camera

Hey Nick, this is what we wanted to happen: Having a discussion. You're right, that asking people to do research is not welcoming, and saying it's on the forums is not helpful - I try to never do that without linking to the answer to the question. OTOH: If people don't even read the shops warning, if they ask for help without even providing a basic level of information (PP edition, distro, carrier), then it's tough to help.
I'm a transportation and logistics consultant and part-time tech supremo.
