#activitypub is a #distribution protocol, NOT a privacy tool. And any bad-actor would be able to mine your feeds (listed or not) for #data. That is not your instance's fault or your admins! It's by design.
@wellenreiter I mean you can always scrape data from the internet but at least the service its located on has no intention of serving you ads.
I think you can shoot yourself in the foot with Hubzilla, too. (Never tried Zot. Nobody seems to use it.)
If you need more privacy than the Fediverse can offer, use an end-to-end encrypted messenger like Element (Matrix), Conversations (XMPP+OMEMO), Signal or Briar.
My apologies for using the "bad" link in my earlier post. @mike himself provided the far better source - with a valid certificate. The point I wanted to make clear is not that anything with #activitypub would be bad. I only wanted to highlight that there are superior protocols out there since years.
"Nobody is using it". Yeah. That includes me. I simply didn't have the capacity to maintain my own hub anymore. To my own regret. I'm now on Masto because it does what it does.
Mastodon ist ein soziales Netzwerk. Es basiert auf offenen Web-Protokollen und freier, quelloffener Software. Es ist dezentral (so wie E-Mail!).
