Facebook banned me for life because I created the tool Unfollow Everything. https://slate.com/technology/2021/10/facebook-unfollow-everything-cease-desist.html
@humanetech that thread was really interesting to read, there is a lot of Business apologists in there which makes me roll my eyes
yes, the audience really varies. HN, which originated as a social linksharing site mostly for Silicon Valley types, has grown a lot. And with that a real critical base is gradually becoming more dominant. And by upvoting one can amplify that further. I really enjoy HN as one of few social channels I use besides fediverse.
@humanetech I find it funny that one person in there was all, wait a minute, you can sideload extensions? LOL I’m a script kitty and knew that. I’m eager to use this extention so will try to get it working later
@firstname.lastname@example.org this is both amazing and disgusting
Amazing is of course the part where it's actually helping a positive social media usage
Disgusting is the part where Facebook just forbids it and going to court would be too risky as a single private person without much money
@sugarbell I know right? I wish that I would’ve known about this sooner so I could have used this tool
@email@example.com yeah, it would be good to know that an option like that exists for the case I "have to" use social media like that. It's really scary how these tech giants can do whatever they want just because of the platform effect
