Users in EU will have a choice

Google has just announced a change for users in Europe that will allow them to decide exactly how much data sharing is right for them. The new policy, which the company says is in response to the EU’s Digital Markets Act (DMA), allows users to opt out of data sharing for all, some or none of Google’s selected services. The services listed include YouTube, search, advertising services, Google Play, Chrome, Google Shopping and Google Maps. However, the policy is not airtight – Google will still share user information when necessary to perform a task (for example, when you pay for a purchase on Google Shopping using Google Pay), to comply with the law, to prevent fraud or to protect against abuse.

Is Mastodon a new Twitter?

What is Mastodon

Mastodon is a microblogging network, it is not controlled by a company or a server, it works through a decentralized federation of servers. The network is open source and we can access it on GitHub, where it is hosted so that anyone can access it.

Mastodon does not use a single server, it consists of several, and it is fast in terms of loading both the network and the application. The user has the option to create a community or instance. In addition, if you don’t want to do that, you can join one of the many available.

The first thing to start using Mastodon is to register with a short registration, when we say concise, that is, it won’t ask for much information about us. There will be four fields you must fill out to register with the site/app, including your username.
