Two fact-checks on the Notre Dame burning yesterday

1. Misleading tweet by Faith J. Goldy, trying to allege jihadists for arson: Truth Or Fiction?

However, the second tweet received under two dozen shares, while the misleading one was shared thousands of times. Moreover, when screenshots of the tweet migrated to platforms like Facebook, they lacked a live link to the article, the “correction,” and the complete headline which clearly contradicted Goldy’s claims.

Old news stories with headlines that do not specify a timeframe are often weaponized by disinformation purveyors to great effect, as many people cannot or will not read the linked story because of time constraints or a paywall. Newsrooms can avoid this and other pitfalls by changing the headlines on old stories and clearly labeling publishing dates. We detail this and other easy methods for stopping or s

No Coincidence that YouMe Social is starting to look much like Google+


The new look is starting to roll out (as well as some additional themes) and the site has a more familiar look to it now for Google+ users. Collections have also started to appear (Groups that only allow the owner to post but anyone can comment) and Categories have gone live too along with +1 on posts instead of a Like button.

Many changes are still to be rolled out and there are some glitches being attended to but it is good to see that from day one posts can be fully public (so you can reshare them to other networks and link back to them) and the owner is managing to keep up with daily feedback to everyone.

Ich muss gestehen, das sieht sehr überzeugend aus. Wie schade, dass Friedica bei der UI um mindestens 5 Jahre hinterher ist. Funktional gibt es keine größeren Unterschiede.. oder?

"I didn't have control": A 14-year-old on why she quit social media

Then, several months ago, when I turned 13, my mom gave me the green light and I joined Twitter and Facebook. The first place I went, of course, was my mom’s profiles. That’s when I realized that while this might have been the first time I was allowed on social media, it was far from the first time my photos and stories had appeared online. When I saw the pictures that she had been posting on Facebook for years, I felt utterly embarrassed, and deeply betrayed.

Google, Facebook, Apple news should be regulated: UK government report


https://www.cnbc.com/2019/02/12/google-facebook-apple-news-should-be-regulated-uk-government-report.html
A U.K. government report published Tuesday said a regulator should ensure tech firms like Facebook, Google and Apple are taking steps to help users identify trustworthy, reliable news on their platforms.
The report also said social media companies should agree to "code of conduct" to govern their commercial agreements with publishers.
The U.K. report's findings could add weight to the case for further regulation of tech companies in Britain and across Europe.

5 social media alternatives to protect your privacy - Pixelfed looks like a good Instagram alternative


Social media isn't what it used to be — especially since we started paying attention to the privacy implications of using the major platforms. After Facebook leaked around 87,000 users information in the Cambridge Analytica scandal, and another 6.8 million users' data in September 2018 when a third-party app gained access to user photos, the already growing #DeleteFacebook movement exploded. I am part of it; I'd had enough, and I knew if I wanted to protect my personal data, I would not be able to exist on Facebook any longer. Other people are doing the same with Twitter because it seems like bots have taken over.

How though — in a world centered around social media, and especially Facebook (which also owns WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, and Instagram) — do you replace these services and remain in contact with friends and family?

Some interesting ones listed. I already use Mastodon and find it very busy. Pixelfed looks like an interesting open Instagram alternativ... show more

#Manyverse is an app for accessing the #Scuttlebutt social network:

https://www.manyver.se

Unlike traditional social networks, Scuttlebutt has no servers. Members store all their personal data on their own computer or phone, and connect directly to their friends' devices in order to update statuses. Scuttlebutt also works offline.

The idea of Manyverse is to provide a user-friendly app to access Scuttlebutt with. It's currently available on Android via F-Droid and Google Play, with future versions planned for iOS and desktop (Win/Mac/Linux).

Please note the app is still in beta, and many features are missing or being worked on.

You can find out more about Scuttlebutt here:

If you're interested in the off-the-grid social network Scuttlebutt, there's a good essay here about it (from a few weeks ago):

https://staltz.com/early-days-in-the-manyverse.html

It's by André Staltz, the creator of the Manyverse app for Scuttlebutt, and is nicely honest about the major difficulties of using the network, as well as suggesting possible solutions.
