My TED talk: how I took on the tech titans in their lair | Carole Cadwalladr
For more than a year, the Observer writer has been probing a darkness at the heart of Silicon Valley. Last week, at a TED talk that became a global viral sensation, she told the tech billionaires they had broken democracy. What happened next?

Social media blocked and curfew raised shortly after terrorist attack

The block on social media including Facebook and its WhatsApp and Instagram services was announced by the government’s official news portal, which cited the spread of “false news reports” online. The NetBlocks observatory said it detected an intentional blackout of the popular platforms as well as YouTube, Snapchat and Viber. Twitter appeared unaffected.
That's the problem when the concerns can't handle their problems on their own - states have to maintain security but barely have a chance to control the companies who are most likely to lower the bar. Then, governments have to close their service down. Should teach Facebook and its likes a lesson.

After an Easter terror attack, Sri Lanka cut access to popular social media - Which is why you also want an account to popular federated social media accounts


Social media services that are federated such as Maston (alternative to Twitter) and Diaspora, Hubzilla and Friendica (alternatives to Facebook) provide full functionality from any of 100's of separate nodes (the addresses where you sign up). Posting at one node where you subscribed allows the message to be followed form elsewhere. There is no single central address that gets blocked to disable the network.

New nodes pop up all the time (I even created my very own hosted Hubzilla and Friendica nodes).

There are also other types of social networks such as Socialhome, Peertube (Youtube alternative), PixelFed (Instagram alternative) and others and usually belonging to just one is all you need, and you can usually follow/be followed from any other. It's the way social media will probably evolve to in future.

See https://fediverse.party/ for a list of federated social networks and lists of nodes where you can join.

NB: Sometimes a government is not trying to censor its population but rather to protect them... show more

"There is a strong chance #JacindaArdern could become the international face of the movement to constrain #SocialMedia, in much the same way her predecessor #DavidLange became the international face of the anti-nuclear movement in the 1980s."

Nuclear weapons (and even the waste from nuclear power) kill people in huge numbers, through catalysing systemic diseases like cancer. What does it tell us when people are comparing social media to this?
