"We are what happens to a Western democracy when elections are disrupted by technology," said Cadwalladr, referring to how voters in the Brexit referendum may have been influenced by online political campaigns. "This technology that you have invented has been amazing, but now it is a crime scene, and you have the evidence" she added.


 
Transport ministry’s cycling helmet campaign called out by SPD’s women’s wing

An advertising campaign by Germany’s transport ministry to persuade cyclists to wear helmets has sparked accusations of sexism, as it features a model wearing just a helmet and underwear.

With the slogan “Looks like shit. But saves my life”, the advert features a profile-shot of Alicija Köhler, a competitor in the gameshow Germany’s Next Topmodel sporting a violet coloured helmet and a lacy bra. #Advertising #Womensrightsandgenderequality #Germany #Gender #Media #Cycling #Europe #Worldnews

Which websites featured on the Federation have the worst privacy?


My last post highlighted how ticking the OEmbed box to add a website picture to a post can compromise Federation users if it contains a tracker.

I also mentioned tools, like Disconnect, we could use to detect websites which track their users. In this post I reveal some of the most popular reference websites on the Federation with low privacy and high tracking rates.

I believe Federation users should consider not embedding, or at least warning their readers about the surveillance techniques carried out by these sites.

A Princeton University study identified almost a million websites that track their users. Here are just 5 examples of websites whose stories are commonly quoted on the Federation:

How can Federation users post more safely?


You know how it goes. We find a great story online and we want to share it with our supporters or feature it in our feed with appropriate hashtags for maximum reach.

But do we check the website featuring the story for privacy before we post?

When we embed a link by selecting the OEmbed box (often ticked by default) this displays an image or video on our post from the website we’ve featured.




They may look cool, but these images can contain beacons or other trackers. Embedded trackers also load into the browsers of any user who scrolls down the public feeds.

How Facebook Screwed Us All


Mother Jones

It’s not just spreading phony stories everywhere—it’s killing real news.

A country riven by ethnic tension. Spontaneous protests driven by viral memes. Violence and riots fueled by hateful fake-news posts, often about “terrorism” by marginalized groups.

It’s a story we’ve seen play out around the world recently, from France and Germany to Burma, Sri Lanka... show more

UK bans gambling ads from sites and games that target kids


 
KARE-TV was first alerted to the "parking lot price switch" by Target shopper Miranda Artz, who noticed the phenomenon while buying an electric razor last spring.

"It was $99.99 in the store, so I bought it," said Artz - only to find that the product was $69.99 on her Target app in the parking lot.

Artz went back in the store to deal with customer service, and noticed that the price had jumped back to $99.99. When she went back out to the parking lot, she noticed the price drop again, so she took a screenshot to show customer service, which then refunded the difference.

[]BROWSERS

Apart from Edge, which has to be tweaked from the W10 OS, most browsers can have their location services disabled through their menu. I cannot list EVERY browser in existence here, as I have a life. If you have other browser location tweaks, please share.

CHROME
1. Click on Chrome’s menu and select the cog symbol – SETTINGS
2. Click the SHOW ADVANCED SETTINGS link at the bottom. Don’t be afraid of the ‘advanced’ implication, this has been worded to scare off timid sheep from reclaiming their privacy.
3. Click the CONTENT SETTINGS button under PRIVACY. While we’re here, consider unchecking the boxes urging us to use web services to ‘resolve navigational errors’ or ‘prediction services’ to auto complete our searches. This is just more telemetry.
4. Scroll down to the LOCATION section and select DO NOT ALLOW ANY SITE TO TRACK YOUR PHYSICAL LOCATION.

Advertising and venture capital is corrupting the internet to the point where it's become mainly an elaborate shell game with no real purpose.

Click stats, AI features and even some brick-and-mortar shops are being faked in order to con advertisers and investors into paying huge sums of money:

The article isn't sure about alternatives, but I'd suggest the alternative is right here on whatever platform you're using to read this post 👍 😉 😎
